Safari Wonderland

First up is the Safari Wonderland where you can get up close and personal with various members of the animal kingdom. There are animal encounters throughout the day, and you do not want to miss out! Watch ferocious tigers roar and ride on majestic camels. Pet fuzzy rabbits and feed mischievous monkeys. There’s plenty to do at the Safari Wonderland!

Have you ever seen an elephant up close? These gentle giants can be surprisingly quick and agile for their size. There’s also a multi-animal show featuring exciting performances by a wonderfully talented cast including a sun bear, macaque and otter.

Other than that, more performances await you with the antics of well-trained parrots, cockatoos, and even a hornbill. These smart birds will certainly delight you with their quirky ways. For a true safari adventure, take a ride in a safari truck and experience the wonder of watching animals right in their natural habitat. Observe as giraffes, camels, tigers, elephants and zebras roam around freely.

For more encounters in the wild, you can take a short trip via a motorised barge to Monkey Island. Set in the middle of a lake, here is where brown lemurs, squirrel monkeys, capuchins, tamarinds, gibbons and macaques call their home. Have a close look at these curious little creatures during feeding time.

And that’s not all! A Farm House full of cute little chicks and various species of chickens and rabbits. An orangutan enclosure with a waterfall where they can freely roam. A Reptile House with fascinating reptiles and colourful amphibians. All these and more at the Safari Wonderland!

These cheeky birds are sure to amuse!
