Wildlife Reserves Singapore Opens River Safari

Wildlife Reserves Singapore, the operator of the award-winning Singapore Zoo, Jurong Bird Park and Night Safari, has soft-opened the 12-hectare River Safari. Situated in Singapore’s Mandai district, the latest addition to its portfolio of eco-parks is the first and only river-themed wildlife park in Asia, dedicated to the conservation of river habitats, which are disappearing faster than forest and marine environments.

 

River Safari boasts over 150 plant species and 5,000 specimens representing 300 animal species from the Amazon, Congo, Ganges, Mekong, Mississippi, Murray, Nile and Yangtze rivers. Visitors can look forward to seeing and learning more about endangered aquatic and terrestrial animals including the Chinese Giant Salamander, Giant Freshwater Stingray, Giant River Otter, Mekong Giant Catfish and the critically-endangered Yangtze Alligator.

 

Other highlights for the park include the Giant Panda Forest, home to a pair of endangered Giant Pandas loaned to Singapore by China, as well as the upcoming Amazon River Quest, a boat trail taking visitors closer to over 30 animal species including the Brazilian tapir, capybara, jaguar and maned wolf.

 

River Safari is open daily from 0900 hrs to 1800 hrs. Tickets during the soft-opening phase are priced at SGD 25 (USD 20) for adults, SGD 16 (USD 13) for children between 3 and 12 years old and SGD 12.50 (USD 10) for seniors above 60 years old. Visitors may purchase tickets from the Singapore Zoo or the River Safari entrance plaza.
