Set in a rainforest environment, Singapore Zoo’s world-famous “Open Concept” offers the opportunity to experience and be inspired by the wonders of nature. Home to more than 2,400 specimens of over 300 species, 34 per cent of which are threatened, the Zoo has attained a strong reputation internationally for its conservation initiatives and breeding programmes. Annually, approximately 1.9 million visitors enjoy experiential learning journeys at the 26-hectare award-winning Zoo. Singapore Zoo is part of Wildlife Reserves Singapore. The Zoo is a designated rescued wildlife centre by the governing authority.

While many visits the zoo during the day, there are plenty to see even when night falls. For example THE NIGHT SAFARI and THE RAINFOREST LUMINA.

As night falls, Singapore Zoo transforms into a whimsical landscape against a symphony of light and sound. Pull the vines aside and meander along the path to where a lush and luminous universe awaits.

Meet the Creature Crew, a quirky group of unlikely heroes (including Orangutan, Flying Fox, Sloth, Chameleon, Asian small-clawed otter, Pangolin, Hornbill, and Tiger cub) who invite you to join their whimsical adventure. The Creature Crew believes that every species has the power to give back to the rainforest: nature, animals, and humans too. Their motto, “We Are One,” means that everyone has a special role to play.

Come play, sing, and discover their enchanted world. For wherever the Creature Crew roams, the rainforest blooms with wonder.

Throughout the one kilometer-long trail, guests will explore Singapore Zoo at night, when the animals are asleep, and be treated to a mesmerising multimedia experience. The night walk consists of 11 zones that are bound to excite guests of all ages!


Guests will be charmed with the four interactive zones in this wondrous world that will bring out their inner child:

  • Sing Like an Animal demonstrates how the earth plays music for those that will listen. Guests will create magic together by using their whispers and songs to make the Creature Crew appear from the jungle.
  • Call of the Wild wows with an astounding visual narrative of how the Creature Crew bands together in times of adversity to overcome all challenges and protect the jungle.
  • Play Like an Animal embraces the mischievous and playful nature of the Creature Crew and encourages guests to join in their fun!
  • Wall of Fame captures the essence of the Creature Crew’s motto– “We are One”. Expect to leave with a photo memory with your Creature Crew friend at the end of the experience!
