    Enjoyable trip
    We visited the zoo on a rainy day, so it wasn’t too busy which was great. It’s not too large and we managed to get around the entire zoo in a morning. I enjoyed the day, but have been to better zoos around the world. All the animals looked well cared for, we are members of Chester zoo (uk) and that’s far superior. Glad we visited but much preferred river wonders.

    Be free!
    It was amazing, the animals seemed well treated, the food was decent and we got to see oragutans outside of their habitat, I highly recommend for evryone who loves animals, their variety of reptiles was immpresive and they had very many animals. They offer a free ride on the carousel for kids, included in their ticket. No it is not an attraction park, it is only highliting the animals.

    Great Experience
    Best zoo anywhere! Beautiful design with no enclosures anywhere to be seen . I did the breakfast with the orangutan experience and was more like an African Safari experience. Also would mention the free trolley available to ride the entire perimeter. By riding the trolley you get a great view of almost all the animals.

    Beautiful but inconsistent
    This zoo is stunning in some parts and you can see they are trying really hard to provide a decent enclosure for the animals. Some animals have a beautiful enclosure and others are not so lucky but I can only assume the zoo are working on that. We went for the Orangutan breakfast which was a lovely experience.

    Amazing expericne for kids
    So this place has 4 parts - Singapore Zoo / Birds Park / River World & Night Safari. Now if you have kids with you plan your full day for this place to avoid long travel. This place is quiet far from City. If you reach from morning 10, you shall be able to see all 4 places & enjoy the activities too. Night safari is also a very different experience. You can actually see many animals from close whn u r in tram.

    A LOT OF WALKING - zoo now split in to separate parks
    Go prepared to walk a LONG way. Each park has it's own admission fees that have to be purchased on lone prior to your visit. Don't expect to do it all in one day and once you leave a park you cannot return on the same ticket - you have to purchase a new one for each visit. There are strollers and wheelchairs available to hire. A restaurant provides various dishes from China, India, Malaysia and more. Also there are various snack shops throughout the parks for drinks and ices. Well signposted within each park and there are talks on specific birds/animals during the day. Sad to see some birds in Paradise park which appeared to be suffering from the heat (it was a very hot day for everyone). Though many species hardly noticed and carried on as normal.

    Zoo experience
    The experience in zoo was amazing , there’s alot of attractive animals in there. The place itself is huge , manage to went to the end of the zoo part which is the elephant area. Everything was wonderful until we get tired reaching the end part of the zoo. We decided to take the tram but cant seem to find any signage that can guide us to the nearest tram. We ended up walking half way through the zoo and take a rest in the cafe after getting tired walking. We hope that more signage will be up for the visitors especially for the tourist who is unfamiliar with the zoo. I personally recommend a signage that direct us to the nearest tram. Thank you!

    Great Zoo!
    SG Zoo is commonly labelled as one of the best zoos in the world, and for good reason! They have a large variety of animals, from Orang-utans to Otters, and the exhibits mostly feel natural and spacious for the animals. Can be kind of crowded at some chokepoints, but never felt claustrophobic while visiting. If you are visiting SG, especially with your family, Highly recommend giving this a shot!

    Too much fun
    Great visit for all ages especially if you haven't been to other big zoos. Animal feeding is fun. Do book in advance, but is subject to weather. Splash show of sea lion at Shaw amphitheatre was amazing - must watch. Monkeys are quite a variety. Do keep plenty time-4 hours at least to see everything. Use tram service internally.

Very good although some large animals seemed to be in small enclosures. Plenty to see though with the 3 zoos in one place. My main gripe is the food available and the contradiction between the Zoo and being eco friendly and the restaurants (fast food only) are definitely not. Surely the zoo should insist on sustainability of all those who want to trade onsite. It pains me to say it, but Starbucks was the best of them! The others didn't even have recycling bins available, let alone eco friendly packaging etc.

Singapore Zoo is a must visit every time we are in Singapore. Although over the years there have been many changes to the park, and there is currently heavy building works, it still is a brilliant day out for us all.
The zoo is very well laid out with a large range of sections dedicated to animals from different habitats and there are map boards and finger posts to direct you to the different zones so no difficulty in navigating your way around.
The zoo also provides a regular tram service around the park which is great when little ones have tired legs or you need to get to a zone quickly.
There is a programme of talks by very passionate workers which adds a little schedule to your trip too. However, if you just want to set your own pace there are very informative information boards about the animals you are viewing too.
There are additional opportunities to feed a range of animals (set times) for an additional $8 (at time of writing) per basket which can be great for memory making and photographs too. However, these need to be pre-booked online.

A visit to Singapore Zoo is a whole day out and although the ticket enables you to visit other sections of the park, if this is your first or second visit it is unlikely you will have time to visit these.

Tips:
Arrive early.
Don't forget your camera.
Bring a refillable water bottle (ensure it is not frosted or metal otherwise the machine struggles to recognise the bottle and fill it.
Wear comfortable shoes - there is a lot of walking!
If coming in a standard taxi, pre-book the return to avoid the very long taxi queue or very expensive luxury private cabs.

Excellent zoo with easy to follow maps so you won't get lost. Wide range of transport options to get you to and from and large food hall area at the entrance. Lots to see and do, I would allow half a day here.
My tip would be to go in the morning as we found the crowds started to build up later in the day making viewing of some exhibits difficult. If you are there at 8.30 you won't have this problem

"Singapore Zoo offered a decent wildlife experience. While the variety of animals was impressive, some enclosures felt a bit dated. The staff were friendly, but the overall atmosphere lacked a bit of excitement. It's worth a visit if you're in the area, but may not be a top priority."

My recent experience at the zoo was disappointing compared to our visit in 2019. Fewer animals, closed interactive exhibits, and overall lackluster maintenance made it less enjoyable. Plus, with the high cost of 49 SGD, it seemed overpriced for what you got.

It's been ages since we last visited the Zoo. With the new look and revamp of the place, it is much better with Night Safari, Bird Paradise, River Safari and Zoo all linked at one place. Parking is also better with covered car parks now. Food selection is much wider with food court at the admission area as well as F&B inside the zoo. My favourite is the Fragile Forest where you can come up close to Mouse Deer, Flying Fox, Lemurs, etc.

A little underwhelmed by our visit. Only visited the Zoo unfortunately didn't have time to visit the other attractions plus very expensive. Wouldn't make it a priority visit. Tourist brochures also direct to MRT Woodlands. This is not correct. Catch Mandai shuttle service from Khatib (NS14).

I've been to Singapore Zoo a few times and though it's changed over the years it's always a treat. We visited on an especially hot day, (even for Singapore), but I still managed to spend seven hours (and two SD cards) wondering around, as there is so much to see. I had planned to visit the Bird Park too but had no time left for that. Next time.

The Fragile Forest area is probably my favourite. It mimics a tropical rainforest habitat and is well laid out for residents and visitors. Animals in here include monkeys, sloths, a variety of colourful birds and curious little Mousedeer (the name says it all). The butterflies at the entrance are beautiful too.

I always love seeing the monkeys and Singapore Zoo has a great variety of them. Unfortunately, there was some noisy maintenance going on in the Primate Kingdom so many were housed elsewhere or in hiding. But I still saw my favourites, the Red-shanked Doucs, endangered and precious.

The reptile house is very impressive - turtles, snakes, lizards, spiders and more. And it's a little cooler than outside.

The cheetahs, tigers and lion were active and visible when we arrived, just after opening. I recommend getting to the zoo early, especially of you want to see these big cats as they were hiding later in the day.

The tram that runs regularly between zones is great, especially when fatigue sets in. There are a number of vending machines dotted around the zoo where you can get refreshment and there's a large cafe and restaurant near the entrance.

There’s a bit of construction going on at the moment so the pathway to the entrance is a little noisy and not exactly welcoming. But once you get past this bit, it's fine.

There is a lot to see. The animals are out in the open with no cages which I was quite impressed with. The animals seem well looked after and there is a forest feel to the zoo which seems like a natural habitat for them.

It is far from town so requires some planning to get there. I would say plan to go early so you can catch the morning shows and avoid the heat or go later in the day so you can catch the shows/displays. I managed to see the rainforest fights back display but the timing of other shows were too far off for me to wait.

Bird paradise and the night safari were also recommended to me, but there was only so much I could do. Maybe, next time.

We spent more than half a day enjoying the different areas. My favorite was the pygmy water hippopotamus. The little guy kept swimming towards the viewing area. It was a sight to behold. Definitely worth the visit.
