A Quick Tip by Sharrie

  • Apr 30, 2011
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!

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.
