The Singapore Zoological Gardens are unique in character to any other Zoo; the design has been meticulously thought out to hide all the enclosure fences amongst cascading waterfalls and vegetation.  This spectacular design gives the Zoo a brilliant feeling of being a natural free habitat for the well looked after animals and has in fact been dubbed “the open Zoo”.   The atmosphere created by this fenceless illusion is one that has given the Zoo a high recognition around the world.

The idea of a Zoo in Singapore was brought together by Dr. Ong Swee Law and opened its doors in 1973 with a small collection of nearly 300 animals.  The Singapore Zoological Gardens now have over 2800 animals across 216 species and offers an excellent retreat from the city for both residents and tourists alike.  The Zoo has over 70 exhibits with many of the different species living together in perfect harmony reminiscent to the African safaris.

The Zoo is open 365 days a year and offers two exciting journeys; the daytime jungle experience and the night time safari.  The day time opening hours are from 8:30 am – 6:00 pm with the last ticket being sold at 5:00 pm, the night time safari starts at 6:00 pm - midnight with the last ticket being sold at 11 pm.
