Animal Kingdom

The Singapore Zoological Gardens, an open-concept zoo which is home to more than 2,000 creatures, has attracted international acclaim because of its clever use of rock walls and streams as natural barriers. Next to the Zoo is the Night Safari, another world-class attraction, where you can look a single-horned rhinoceros in the eye, prowl through the dark with a pack of striped hyenas and look out for leopards. The Jurong BirdPark is one of the world's largest and most impressive aviaries, and a refuge for over 8,000 birds of 600 different species from all over the world.

Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom

Like an emergent butterfly, the newly-transformed Butterfly Park & Insect Kingdom promises to be an experience you won’t forget. Be dazzled by the riot of colours as thousands of tiny wings flutter around you as you stroll through the natural environment - amidst waterfalls and flowers in bloom - where these fragile specimens thrive in. Get acquainted with the history of these creepy-crawlies at the Insect Revolution exhibit and see how they have evolved through the ages. Special highlights on display include complete sets of insect fossils dating back million of years.

The park will also be the first in the world to showcase a 70m-long cave housing live insect specimens in their natural habitat. Visitors can get up close and personal with the Rhino Beetles, Giant Spiders and scorpions. As you venture further into the dark, discover Fireflies which serve as guiding lights. For the more adventurous, participate in the twice-daily Stage Shows where you can learn how to handle giant scorpions, beetles and other insects. Try picking up a stick insect at the Stick Insect Safari, that is only if you can spot these cleverly-camouflaged creatures!
