Established in 1973, Singapore Zoo has proven to be a must-visit, especially after winning the coveted Best Leisure Attraction Experience by the Singapore Tourism Board nine times. Its 26-hectare wildlife park is located inside Mandai rainforest which extends into the Upper Seletar Reservoir.
Today, the zoo serves as the home of over 2,800 animals that represents more than 300 species of reptiles, mammals, and birds combined.
Singapore Zoo includes special viewing features. This includes high platforms where tourists can view the giraffe exhibit and underwater galleries where you can see the the giant estuarine crocodiles, pygmy hippos and otters up close.
One other feature is the glass observatory where you can see the lions and the predatory cheetahs.
