fourteen things to keep in mind when Visiting  SINGAPORE zoo

Duration required

It will take around five hours to explore Singapore Zoo, including animal shows, feeding sessions, and a water park. A group of adults can walk through Singapore Zoo in about three hours.

Best time to visit

The best time to visit Singapore Zoo is when they open at 8.30 am to avoid the crowd and to evade the high afternoon temperature. We recommend weekdays for a peaceful visit.

Zoo shows

Singapore Zoo hosts four shows daily for its visitors – Splash Safari, Animal Friends, Elephant Presentation, and Rainforest Fights Back. The events happen twice daily for approximately 20 minutes.

Rainforest Lumina

Singapore Zoo’s Rainforest Lumina is a 1 Km (0.6 Mile) long walk through the Zoo where visitors enjoy a mesmerizing audio-visual experience.

Zoo tram

Tram is one of the best ways to explore the Zoo. Cover the Zoo without getting tired and listen to fantastic animal stories. Rides are unlimited – you can go on this Tram ride multiple times.

Comfortable shoes

The zoo is a large area, and you'll be doing a lot of walking, so it's best to wear comfortable shoes for a better experience.

Beat the heat

Singapore's weather can be hot and humid, so protecting yourself from the sun is important. Bring sunscreen and a hat to avoid getting sunburnt.


Singapore Zoo has a lot of restaurants offering both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food.  We highly recommend breakfast with Orangutans if you can reach the Singapore Zoo by 9 am.

Booking Singapore Zoo tickets online in advance saves time and energy by skipping the lines at the ticket counter and last-minute disappointment.
