If you're in Singapore and wondering what to do at night, don't worry. You won 't need to go pub crawling again. You won't need to walk the foodie trail again. Just sign up for the Singapore Night Safari at the forest reserve next to Singapore Zoo and you're all set for a whole night of exquisite thrills and drama. When you've experienced the Night Safari, you'll realize that Singapore as a city is even more exciting by night than it is by day. Welcome yourself into the jungle, where great efforts have been made to replicate the original habitats of its nocturnal residents. Feast your eyes on leopards, wallabies, Malayan tigers, Malayan tapirs and more than 2,500 creatures belonging to over 130 species. The large Asian elephant also roams around at night, so keep your eyes peeled. If you’re lucky, you just might spot one!Check out all the exciting programs and safari routes at the Singapore Night Safari. The Night Safari park is divided into seven global geographical zones. As you traverse through each zone, you'll realize just how different they are. If you’re going through the Himalayan zone one minute, the next moment you would have moved on to the swampy banks of Equatorial Africa. It is forest all the way around though – with insects buzzing away and animals calling to each other.
Do you want to discover the jungle on your own terms, at your own pace? Then sign up for an exciting night bushwalk trail at night to spot endangered and elusive creatures, like the Australian wallabies. These wallabies go out of their domain to nibble on fresh greens while the dew is still fresh on them. Their powerful hind legs let them jump quite a distance and to great heights to escape from threat. If predators threaten, they tend to kick out at them from behind. Wallabies prefer to live in dense forests, which offers them the opportunity to hide from predators
