This attraction was absolutely OVER rated!!! If you have never seen some of these so called "nocturnal" animals, then I suppose it is ok. The tram went through the areas too quickly for someone to actually watch and appreciate the animals. I think there are about 10 stops where animals are in lit area. Visitors are asked to be quiet during the trip BUT you cannot hear the night live as the commentary on the tram is VERY loud!!!! So I don't know why visitors have to be quiet!!! Also the tram stopped the majority of times so that only the people in the front area could see the animals properly to take a photo. Then it moved and did not stop for us at the back to take a photo or see the whole animal or group of animals. I don't think this was on purpose, just the driver did not think of it or is very inexperience as a safari tram driver.I would not recommend to do the night safari per se. If you combine it with the river safari and/or the zoo itself, then the whole package is worthwhile. But to go just for the night safari will be disappointing!!
This is a pretty cool tour. It's worth it to see the rare animals of Singapore and you do see them up close and personal. The additional tours are self guided. Fire show could have been a bit more spectacular but not very many options for SG. Would recommend taking this one in so see some rare animals.
I was left wondering why so many people were at the zoo location. The place was very busy and it was good the be able to jump the ques. Only problem is that the tram ride through the pitch black zoo which has very limited lighting of the sparsely scattered animals really isn't worth the trouble.
Take a day tour of another section of the zoo where you can actually see the animals.
For a 2 hour tour at the actual venue, it took 3.5 hours of travel there and back, with lots of waiting around at the Gardens by the Bay transfer area. The night safari itself was good, but I would recommend to do it on your own because then you can spend as much time as you want. Only things we managed to do were the bus tour and Creatures show. We didn't have any time at all to walk around the tracks, which is very different from the description of this tour which talks about a leisurely walk. We had dinner before hand, I don't know if we would have had time to eat there at all! Also the advertised time from 6.15pm pick up was 3.5 hours, however we ended up getting back to hotel after 11pm, which was very late for my kids.
Our pickup driver was over 40 minutes late and the tour operator showed no concern or care about it. Tour Guide did their best to smooth it over, but ended up causing more offence suggesting that travellers had messed up their advice of which hotel they were at. I had called 3 times prior to our tour to confirm pick up time AND our hotel so knew this was not the case. The tours time at the zoo was extended by 30 minutes but this did not help at all, as we were travelling with a young child and had worked around the 10pm finish -
extended to 10.30pm just caused us even more stress. The Night Safari itself was well worth the visit - a great evening and some amazing sights to see the animals so close up at night. But, not through this tour operator. Chose another if you want an enjoyable night from beginning to end.
