Night Safari, the first of its kind, gives visitors rare insights into the world of nocturnal animals. Come and experience the night life with a difference! The world's first wildlife park built for visits at night, the Night Safari is not like any ordinary zoo illuminated by the night or a modern version of nocturnal houses found in many zoos around the globe. Nestled in 40 hectares of lush secondary forest, the Night Safari offers guests the unique experience of exploring wildlife in a tropical jungle at night. Through the use of subtle lighting technique, guests are able to view over 1,000 nocturnal animals of 100 species in vast naturalistic habitats. The birth of the Night Safari is a result of a combination of factors. The overwhelming response to night tours conducted at the Zoo in the late 1980s indicated a demand for wholesome night entertainment. Displaying tropical animals at night seemed ideal since 90% of them are nocturnal and, therefore, most active after dusk. Moreover, Singapore is blessed with sunset taking place punctually at 7.30pm, dependably cool nights and little rainfall. These operational advantages make outdoor night attraction perfect. The 40-hectare safari area blends into the rainforest. A 45-minute tram journey under tropical moonilght conditions brings your trough themes of Nepal, Africa, South America, India and other exotic areas. There is no obvious barricade and the animals may come very close, which makes the Night Safari an unforgettable and stunning experience for young and adults.
