Let’s check out, what choices and surprises are stored here for the visitors.

Tram Safari

Adventure enthusiasts availing this trip can hop on the Tram Safari to witness kaleidoscopic flora and fauna life at this most popular nightspot of Singapore. Animate your senses with the resonating sounds of the jungle – intense sound of raging waters, fritinancy of insects and unpredictable calls of nocturnal animals are sure to give flights to your imagination. With a knowledgeable guide aboard the tram, the exciting tour lasts for only forty minutes, which makes it a good entertainment choice for those with connecting flights.

Walking Trails

The idea to explore the wilderness of Singapore on foot after long hours of flights appeals to many!  Take up one of the walking trail expeditions. On a fishing cat trail you will witness diverse species of cats; watch them skilfully fishing in water, as well as spot many other native breeds of animals. Leopard Trail highly appeals to all with a chance to see the secretive Sri Lankan Leopards in their naturally designed forested enclosures. The Wallaby Trail is one of the must-do activities. Here tourists can see the exclusive collection of Australian Outback creatures from a close proximity.

Shows

Most wildlife lovers taking flights to Singapore expect only tours and trails in the wild. But tickets to watch the fascinating animals at the popular ‘Creatures of the Night Show’ here is a great way to explore the wild. In this twenty minute show, one gets an opportunity to witness creatures like binturong, otter, civet, African Serval (wild cat) etc displaying their natural abilities. You will also see a Spotted Hyena and get surely amazed with the power of its jaws! Besides, Thumbuakar, the fire show, fires up the imagination of adventurers with pyro-warriors’ awe-inspiring ‘fiery’ demonstrations clubbed with cultural dance performances. With so much thrill and excitement, you are more likely to save your show tickets as souvenirs more than your flights tickets or any other memento.

Dining

Gourmet Safari Express and Cocktail Safari Express are two unique dining experiences that travellers simply love; especially the epicureans visiting here. Savouring some of the best quality wines and cocktails and the authentic flavour of Singaporean cuisine aboard a moving tram amidst the amiable animal stars will beat your dining experience anywhere else; your international flights included! Choose between two of these experiences with the former being a proper five course meal experience and the latter one being the lighter version.
