We initially planned on going to the Singapore Zoo then the Night Safari. BUT, since I was too tired already to push through with out original plan, we opted to go to the Night Safari only. It was a pretty good decision because the kids has so much fun. The fun started when we watched the Fire Show.
Both girls were impressed they didn’t want to eat dinner because they wanted to watch the show first. But it was just short and ended after 10 to 15 minutes. After dinner of hotdog, burger, and chicken nuggets, off we went to the tour. As far as I can remember, we waited in line for more than an hour before we were able to ride the tram. Oh yes, the place was jampacked.
The tram ride only took around 35 minutes but the reaction of the kids were priceless! They were amazed to see real lions, tigers, deers, giraffes, zebras, elephants and more.
I didn’t they would turn out this excited. But kids really are unpredictable.(*grin*) After the tour, we lined up again for the last show at 10:30PM which is the Creature of the Night show…
Set in a forest clearing, this 20-minute animal presentation will introduce you to nocturnal animals, from the elusive owl to nimble binturongs to intuitive civets. Watch, learn, be entertained and even be part of the act. The show also features a more interactive format where visitors will be drawn into the action. We don’t want to spoil the surprises so be sure to include this in your list of Night Safari things to do!
If you are planning to watch this show, make sure to line up an hour before the show to make sure you get seats. This is on a first come first serve basis. And because admission is not allowed anymore once the show has started. Show times are 7.30pm, 8.30pm, and 9.30pm daily (but this one depends on the weather). There is an additional show at 10.30pm on Fridays, Saturdays and eve of public holidays.
It was an extraordinary experience we will never forget! And I’m definite that kids will always remember this even until they grow up.
