Nocturnal activities of normal wild animals
With name Night Safari I had the impression that I will see some animals and birds which are nocturnal by nature and come out only at night but that was not the case. We went through the man-made jungle watching wild animals during the late evening hours. I felt cheated when I visited this place. Only thing good which this place offers is food. They offer very tasty and wide variety of food. But you will not like to visit night safari for food. They also have a show where animals do some stunt basically they jump to grab food some other basic stunts. And tribal dance where they throw fire out of the mouth. I will not recommend spending money on night safari.
Night Safari - A Whole New Experience into the Nocturnal World
The Night Safari basically consists of 3 parts:1. Creatures of the Night Show - An animal show which is hosted by 2 or 3 forest rangers and they showcase a few of the Nocturnal Animals available in the Park. It is organized in an Amphitheatre setup and well presented.2. Fire Show - This is an out and out fire show by some tribal men (or at least they are dressed like that). A short and interesting show but please ensure that you keep your children around you since they tend to wander too close to the stage in excitement.3. The Actual Nigh Safari - The Safari can be completed in 2 parts. First on foot and then on the tram. Please be aware that the animal trails on foot cover a lot of animals but there are still few that can be seen only if you go by the tram. However if you cannot walk through all the trails you can cover as much as you can on foot and then catch a tram from any of the tram stations along the way. Always keep a map of the park handy so that you can keep a track of where you are at any point of time.The Safari as a whole is an out of the world experience which is safe but there is not much lighting so as not to disturb the nocturnal animals so always keep your children near you. There are places where you can have food in between, however they are a bit costlier than what you would get outside. To enjoy the entire safari you should reach the park at 7pm or a little before that. We reached the park at 7pm and after buying our tickets went for the Creatures of the Night Show followed by the Fire Show and then we covered the Safari on foot. By the time we finished the Tram ride (which was the last tram for the day) it was already 12. 30am.
Worth once a visit
If you have seen Singapore Zoo then you have the choice to see animals at night and that is what Night Safari is all about. There are different activities going on in different places at Night Safari. Then there is this tram which takes you around the Safari. The commentator has a very soft voice and narrates everything on the way. Only thing is the animals appear lifeless. Otherwise, worth once a visit.
Walk and explore!
The night safari is a must see attraction in Singapore, specially if you are an animal lover and have kids with you. You have to buy entry tickets. There are two ways to see the zoo during night safari. One is to walk which would lead you through the habitat of different animals like tiger trail, wallaby trail etc. which is also quite exciting. When there is no crowd and your group is small the darkness and sound of crickets and night animals add to the eerie atmosphere of the forest. They have guards at strategic locations but most of the time you feel all alone and that's scary. The other way is to take the tram which is not much fun because there are lots of noises. So it is better to walk and explore.
Always dreamt of walking through the jungle at night on your own? But did not know how to do it. Well, here is your chance to live your dream. And you can do it either in the numerous trolly buses or take a hike. Both are allowed. But for the hike do remember to take a guide, its helpful. And at the end, you can join is some wild dance routines at the entry-exit gates!
