Singapore Zoo is well worth the visit, as you’ll see a sheer number of animals—over 4,000 of them! 

Furthermore, the beasts and fowl are sheltered in environments that mimic their natural habitats, helping maintain each species’ well-being.  

Apart from exhibiting animals, Singapore Zoo also offers family-friendly activities such as feeding sessions, keeper talks, and behind-the-scenes tours. These can help bring you closer to the inhabitants of the zoo to learn more about them.

Why is Singapore Zoo so famous

Singapore Zoo is famous for its unique encounter sessions with animals, the most notable being the free-ranging orangutan exhibit. 

These critically endangered species are being kept and cared for in the zoo for conservation efforts.

The zoo’s garden setting and open design are also part of its charm. 

There are plenty of trees for shade as you walk down the trails. The animals, meanwhile, have enough space to roam around thanks to their non-suffocating enclosures.
