Night Safari > Wiki


The Night Safari is the world's first nocturnal zoo and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Singapore.

The concept of a nocturnal park in Singapore was mooted in the 1980s by the former executive chairman of the Singapore Zoo, Dr Ong Swee Law. Constructed at a cost of S$63 million, the Night Safari was officially opened on 26 May 1994 and occupies 40 hectares (0.4 km²) of secondary rainforest adjacent to the Singapore Zoo and Upper Seletar Reservoir.

The Night Safari currently houses a total of 1,040 animals of 120 species, of which 29% are threatened species. The zoo is managed by Wildlife Reserves Singapore, and about 1.1 million visitors visit the safari per year.[2] The Night Safari received its 11 millionth visitor on 29 May 2007.

One of Singapore's most popular tourist destination. Frankly, I didn't see many animals when I visited years ago although I do know it's a highly popular one for many tourists. The statistics is that at least 1 million visits every year.      Night Safari is the 1st nocturnal zoo in the world and has been in operation since 1994. Remember to bring along mosquito repellent when you visit!
