    The staff is friendly; however, the park is too dark. we understand that it is a night safari, but it is challenging to navigate. The signage is difficult to see, and the E-maps are unclear. As a result, I opted for the tram. Unfortunately, we wasted 40 minutes waiting for the tram only to discover that it only covered about 40% of the attractions.

    Greta evening out
    The night zoo is a great experience. You get to see some of the animals in a twilight scenario. It’s best to go out early at dusk although it’s very sympathetically back lit for the later train ride. After the train ride you can then walk around some of the route giving you a different perspective on the whole evening.

    Must-See attraction
    Must-See place in Singapore. One of the only places in the world that you can see so many nocturnal animals at once. Highly recommend taking the walking path instead of the tram, at least if you only intend to do one. The tram line is easily about 45 minutes long if you get there during peak time. Come after sunset so the animals are more active. You can purchase an additional ticket to feed rhinos as well.

    A Unique Experience
    Having visited zoos around the world, the Night Safari provides a real point of difference. As the name suggests the zoo is open after dark, meaning that many nocturnal animals are extremely active as opposed to the usual zoo experience of "spot the sleeping animal". The trails are well presented and the safari itself is a great experience. Live show a bit corny and you could give it a miss, but otherwise excellent. Visited with 16, 13 and 12 year old who all enjoyed it. Make sure you book in advance.

    Another fun visit…
    Another fun visit to the Night Safari. Getting there and back on the MRT and shuttle bus was easy. It was very busy when e got there at 8.45pm so we skipped the tram queues and walked a lot of the trails this time, then jumped on a tram later on. Missed the shows unfortunately as the walking trails took us longer than expected. The overall experience, as we have found on previous visits, is that it’s a nice evening and the nocturnal aspect gives it something different to what you can experience elsewhere.

    Misleading Ticket
    Its very annoying when you book and the ticket has a certain timing then you arrive and still have to wait up to 70 minutes. They mislead you into thinking you are booking a slot and the amount of tickets/visitors is controlled per slot but actually its not. We arrived at 7 45 at our booking time only to be told we had to wait 70 more minutes for the actual tour because there were too many people waiting. We asked what the point of the timing was and they said that's just for you to come to the park at that time. They also told us no one adheres to the actual time slots they book and just enter as they please. So be ready to wait in long lines like you're out in a theme park. We had a toddler and baby (age 1) and waiting for 70 minutes was very difficult.

    A good evening event and something different
    One of the must-do things to do in Singapore we were told. We thought it was well done and professionally presented but I’m not sure it is a must do. If you have a spare evening then why not. The train, despite the queue, is good and the commentary is educational. The walking paths are also ok but in the dark, it’s not so interesting. The show in the amphitheater is well done and presents a series of animals in their glory. However, I get the feeling that it’s an experience struggling to find the right audience. Small children would love it, but because it is at night, many are exhausted or irritable by that point. Older kids will find it less enchanting.

    Exciting
    We visited the Night Safari 20+ years ago and came back with our daughters. We avoided the train, but walked the four trails. After a slow start we reallygot into it. Plenty of animals we hadn’t seen move look Westwood here and even plenty of animals we had never seen before. In the dark this is just a very special experience.

    Zoo by night is a nice experience.
    We purchased the combo ticket of River Wonders, Singapore Zoo & Night Safari and also recommend it for you. The experience of animals and their activities in night especially the nocturnal animals were ultimate. We enjoyed the experience.

    Experienced an extremely long waiting time
    I've been to the Night Safari in 2015 and 2005, which were incredible experiences. Absolutely unique for a zoo! Now, in 2023, the 3rd time back in Singapore for a holiday, it was more disappointing. We bought tickets for 8:15pm and waited in line (hot and humid) for 75 minutes and entered the tram only at 9:30pm for a 30 minute ride. We also went on the trails, which meant we only left the Zoo at midnight with 2 very tired kids. I would say that given the high price of the tickets and the extremely long wait (booking tickets for a specific time is basically meaningless) it was not really worth it for us for the 3rd time visiting this Zoo.

After dealing with various situations in Singapore where people were so honest about correcting their mistakes, it came as a shock to feel so cheated by the ridiculous Night Safari Singapore.

If you really must go, then add it on to an afternoon trip to the zoo. But it would be a waste of money to do the Night Safari by itself. It's going to take you around half an hour to get there by taxi, and the taxi will cost around SGD 25, and then back again to your hotel.

Hundreds, if not thousands of people arrive for the 7.15 ... and then again for the 8.15 entrance, and so on. Fortunately the queues move fast, and the staff get you on the trams quickly.

You would think as dusk fell you would get a reasonable view of the animals. But you don't. Most the the animals you will see will be various deer and hogs. Let's be honest, what people really want to see is lions, tigers and magnificent beasts. Does anyone care about seeing hogs in the dark ?

Many of the animals have dark fur .. so what you might get to see is some white or pink in their ears, and that's about it. Other impressive animals like the elephants, you can see them a whole lot better in daylight. So there's no point looking at them at night.

We were also told the tram ride was around 45 minutes. It was over in 30 minutes.

They save the best for last. A tiger, properly lit, in a small enclosure so it paces back and forth behind glass. Not entirely sure that's one happy tiger. And that's it, that is your highlight right at the end, the last 5 to 8 seconds.

Also, irritatingly there's a horrible recorded American cheesy narration. They constantly ask people to be quiet to not scare the animals, but the Chinese and Indians don't listen or understand and jabber the whole trip, so ruin any atmosphere. Would have loved to have fed some of them to the lions.

I also have my doubts about some of the animals in the main zoo. The beautiful leopards and cheetahs constantly pace back and forth in a very small space. It would send a human mad, so heaven knows what it does to an animal.

With so many great reviews we followed the masses of people in Dec 2019 to see animals at night. There was about 20mins wait in line to buy tickets. There was about 40mins wait in line to get into the night safari. There was then another 35min wait in a zig zag line to get a tram ride to see some animals in their enclosures. We would have liked to go around again but weren’t willing to join the line again. For over $200+ for a family of 5, I don’t think it was worth it. They let too many people in the zoo even though there are set entrance times. There are still people there from the earlier entrance time.
Great place to see some animals and lots of people queuing.

We pre-booked the tickets with a specific entry time (9.15). Got there at 8.30, people were lining up, and the queue was long.

Once you scanned the ticket and got in; there was another long queue for the tram. By the time we sat on the tram, it was past 10.15, which ‘supposed to be’ the next entry time. The tram ride only last for an hour while we wasted more time on queuing.

This is clearly over capacity. It is poorly organized and simply chaotic.

We were torn whether to visit the Night Safari or Singapore Zoo but chose this as it seemed like a unique experience - and we certainly weren't disappointed.

On arrival, most people head straight to the tram so we walked along the paths instead. This place has a very special atmosphere and it was wonderful to see the animals start to quietly emerge as it got darker. After we'd walked everywhere we saw the show (fun but probably aimed more for kids), and then got on the tram for the drive around. Do try to do a bit of walking as well as the tram - we saw some animals one way but not the other and vice versa.

I'd highly recommend this place as I've never come across anything quite like it and it's a much more manageable temperature to be walking around than in the day! Takes about 45min-1 hour to get there in a taxi from the centre.

We visited the Night Safari in June 2022 and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We arrived at 8pm but didn’t have time to attend one of the shows. Recommend to arrive around 7pm if you want to see the shows which you need to book in advance. There are also opportunities to feed some of the animals which also need to be booked in advance.

We got the MRT to Khatib and then the shuttle bus to the Night Safari. This cost 1 dollar and runs every 20 minutes. The last bus back is 11pm - this bus does get busy so recommend arriving before if you want a seat.

Absolutely love the night safari

#1 Night Safari Tip - Go on a rainy weekday.

Absolutely no queues to be seen (as not seen in photos). We were able to ride the tram numerous times without having to line up at all. Most of the trams weren’t even half full.

The cooler weather makes walking the trails and a pleasant overall experience.

The animals were frisky and alert due to cooler weather as well.

You must visit night safari when in Singapore, and like I said, choose a rainy weekday and enjoy the park without the queues.

I’d also recommend doing the Night Safari on a seperate day to the zoo, especially if you have kids. You don’t want to fatigued when visiting.

When buying ticket for night Safari, the rainforest Luminar is a compulsory bundle. However after the trip at the Safari, there is virtually no time for the rainforest Luminar anymore, let alone catching the last bus to MRT station which ends before or exactly at the Safari closure.
A Chinese guy was seen selling “discounted” online tickets before the official ticketing booth, giving reasons of selling off unused tickets from friend which obviously was made up. A scalper indeed but not regulated, shouldn’t have happened in Singapore.

We bought the 8.15pm tickets and after entering we were promptly told over the loud speaker as well as as we were moving through the ticketing gate that we could go a certain way to get on the tram or you could go another way if you wanted to walk around. We had a tired tween so we took the tram ride which was informative and maybe we were just lucky but we saw loads of animals. after the tram ride did it's circuit we then lined up for about 15 minutes for the night show. Fabulous. If you've been to a few zoo's it's not the absolute most awesome show I've seen but well worth it and I wouldn't suggest missing it. You could have then walked around again if you wanted to as the Zoo is open until very late but we left after the the once around tram ride and show.

The same shows as many years ago. Only the garbage sorting otter is a different animal now. Otherwise no further development. On our first visit, you could still feed the animals on the tour at stopovers. The staff that was supposed to prepare a Singapore Sling three times in addition to the fire show was just annoyed. Furthermore, one has the impression at the zoo, river safari and night safari that in order to save money the animal groups were only distributed in 3 attractions and thus the animal groups only got smaller. Exceptions are the pandas (were not distributed) and the polar bear that died.

There's one thing that's important to understand: the night safari is a "tram ride" through the zoo... at night. Not really a safari. Although we did ride pretty near one or two animals, we saw most of them from the same distance as you'd see them if you just visited the zoo during the day. The fact that it's a "night" safari means you don't see the animals so well, as it is dark. Getting there is a bit of a hassle as it's not near a metro station, so you need a bus, and there were MASSES of people. We spent for more time getting there and queuing up than looking at the animals. Visiting the zoo during the day would have been a better experience, but in hindsight we should have skipped it altogether.
