Recently opened in 2014, River Safari is Asia's first river-themed wildlife park. From the Mississippi to the Amazon, River Safari is inspired by the world's most iconic rivers.
The river-themed zoo features 30 acres of wild habitat for a variety of animals. The park is home to 400 plant species and over 7,000 animals representing close to 300 species. Visiting the River Safari is an outstanding opportunity to see wildlife in a more natural habitat.
River Safari aims to inspire visitors to appreciate and protect fragile freshwater ecosystems. The Park is home to threatened species such as the giant panda, Mekong giant catfish and manatee to name a few.
River Safari is one of the most visited tourist attractions in Singapore. The park is combined with the Singapore Zoo, Jurong Bird Park, and Night Safari to offer a full day of fun.

What will I see?
River Safari is the latest addition to Singapore Zoo which already contains Night Safari and Jurong Bird Park. The new attraction is popular as close to one million people visit the park each year. Inspired by the world's most iconic rivers, River Safari caters to animals that live in freshwater or by its shores.
River Safari contains acres of wildlife in their natural habitat. The addition to the Singapore Zoo keeps with its tradition of providing open and natural habitats familiar to the species that inhabit them. Boat tours are the best way to get around River Safari and see various animals.
The river-themed park consists of ten different ecosystems, including the River Nile, Mississippi River, and the Amazon River. All in all, there are over 7,000 animals in the park and 300 different species. A fair number of the species are considered endangered, including the highlight of River Safari - giant pandas.

What is the best time to visit the River Safari? How to avoid the crowd?
The River Safari is a popular exhibit at the Singapore Zoo, though it doesn’t always get quite as crowded as parks at the Singapore Zoo. Regardless, since the acreage of River Safari is smaller (and you have to wait in line for boat rides, etc) we recommend arriving when the gates first open at 10 am.
The peak visiting hours of River Safari are traditionally 1 pm - 2 pm, and another rush between 4 pm - 5 pm. Weekends also attract more visitors like any other tourist attraction. You can avoid most of the crowds by visiting early morning or late afternoon.
What are the River Safari opening hours?
The River Safari is open every day of the year. The operating hours of the River Safari are 10 am to 7 pm. Also, the final entry of the day is permitted at 6:30 pm, though the exhibit doesn’t close until 7pm.
- Book online: River Safari tickets are cheaper if booked online. There are many websites selling cheap tickets. Compare prices with our search engine and save up to 30%.
- There are many different ways to get around River Safari and the Singapore Zoo. We recommend renting a stroller or wagon for little ones since you’ll be on your feet so much. Electric scooter rentals and wheelchairs are also provided for disabled or handicap.
- Prepare for the weather. River Safari and the rest of the Singapore Zoo is primarily outdoors. You’ll want to wear comfortable clothing and shoes for walking as well as bring rain gear since you are visiting a rainforest area. Also prepare yourself with sunscreen and insect repellent.
- Rain gear is available for purchase if you experience severe rainstorms while inside the park. Many of the exhibits are under shelters which helps provide a place of temporary refuge.
- Use small locker if needed. It costs S$ 5 for the first 3 hours, and S$1 for every additional hour.
