Singapore Night Safari

I went to Singapore for the first time during summer in 2008. Once my travel mate Shelly and I checked into the hotel Summerview, this transit ad right across the street caught my eyes. The ad was promoting the ‘Creature of the Night‘ show by the Night Safari, Singapore. More information was also available in the stack of pamphlets in the display racks dedicated to the interesting travel experiences in Singapore. Shelly said he had been to the Night Safaribefore and suggested that I should definitely check it out!

Here is the picture of the transit ad of the Night Safari right across the street that I had clicked once I checked in Summerview:

This is the world’s first wildlife night park. The park is the winner of ‘Best Visitor Attraction Experience’, awarded by the Singapore Tourism Board. Singapore Night Safari has won this prestigious award 11 times!

The highly popular Singapore Night Safari is right beside the Singapore Zoo. Electric trams take the visitors on an ‘atmospheric journey’ when touring through the jungle. The visitors are able to spot the nocturnal creatures in their natural habitat while the tram passes over the world of nocturnal creatures in their dimly-lit homes. There are over about 2,500 nocturnal animals of 120-130 species in this 40-hectare park.

This photo of the Malayan Tapirs was collected from the Global Travel Mate site where they extended a pinning opportunity for this image via Pinterest:

The park was opened in the year 1994 and among so many different species, this park hosts many wild animals indigenous to the region: Malayan Tapir, Malayan Tiger, and endangered Asian Elephant, etc. An electronic tram offers a trek through the jungle, on a 35-45 minute ride on its wheels. The live commentary takes the spectators across seven geographical zones of the world — from the ‘Rugged Himalayan Foothills’, ‘Asian Riverine Forests’, ‘Indian Subcontinent‘ to the ‘Swampy Banks of Equatorial Africa’. The guests are also offered an opportunity to trek through the jungle along the four walking trails if they are interested to take a look the animals up close and personal since these walking trails lead to the enclosures inaccessible by tram.

This is a fascinating picture of the ‘pyro-warriors’ that I had collected from the traveldelight website:

Once we were on the tram, the commentator warned us not to use flash to grab any picture of the wild animals since doing so could disturb and infuriate them. When the tram crossed the swamp, she warned us to keep our feet inside the tram; otherwise it was dangerous since there were crocodiles in the swamp. Once the tram journey ended, we were taken to an open space in the jungle, and there was a spectacular stage there. This is where the ‘Creature of the Night Show‘ began that was hosted by the park rangers. The duration of the show was about 20 minutes to half an hour. The fire show was an interesting part of the show. One of the most thrilling item was a large python (the largest species of snake in the world) hidden under one of the enclosed sitting benches of the amphitheater!

This is the only video I could find of the commentary inside the tram ride that was clearly audible and the scenery outside the tram that was clearly visible. I thank Mr. Nikhil Sood for uploading this video in YouTube:

This wonderful ‘Creatures of the Night Show‘ presentation video was collected from the YouTube channel: Fie Miklo. Enjoy!
