  1. Book your ticket online in advance

You can buy the  Night Safari ticket on the spot. But, it is more convenient to buy it online from the official website or online booking through Traveloka. You can save your time and effort because the e-ticket will be sent to your email and you just need to bring that later on your visiting day. 

You can skip the queue at the ticket counter and enjoy the safari to the fullest without getting the mood spoiled by the line.

  1. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes

At the Night Safari, you will walk a lot to enjoy the entire place. Even though you can use the tram to see various animals, there are still quite a lot of areas that can be visited by walking. So,do wear comfortable clothes and shoes to feel more comfortable during your visit. You might want to pack a jacket in case the temperature gets colder at night.

Night Safari also provides a tram with a guide to be used to see animals in seven geographics zones for about 40 minutes. After that, you can walk through four lanes of Walking Trail, namely Fishing Cat, Leopard, East Coast Lodge, and Wallaby to see the nocturnal friends from up close.

  1. Make plans during your visit

Besides seeing various animals, there are numerous shows at the Night Safari to enjoy, like Creature of The Night Show, featuring attractions from binturong, beaver, racoon, and hyena for about half an hour. 

You better be in the queue a few minutes before the show starts. So, you can get the best spot to watch the show. The first schedule of Creature of The Night Show is at 7.30 PM everyday.

After that, you can see the Thumbuakar Tribal Dance. This performance features the fire dance as well as fire bursts, for about 10 minutes. Unfortunately, during this Covid-19 condition, Thumbuakar Tribal Dance is suspended by Night Safari Singapore until further notice.

So, if you don’t make a good plan during your visit, it’s possible to miss one of the iconic shows at this Night Safari.

Whether you come to Singapore with family or friends or even alone (solo traveling is fun too!), don’t forget to add this attraction to your itinerary. You can simply visit Singapore zoo at day and move to Night Safari which is located close to the zoo to enjoy a full day with animals and nature.That would be really  fun!
