About River Safari


River Safari is the newest addition to Wildlife Reserves Singapore’s portfolio of award-winning parks. Nestled between Singapore’s two award-winning wildlife parks – Singapore Zoo and Night Safari – River Safari offers an unforgettable adventure inspired by eight of the world’s most iconic rivers. This $160-million attraction features state-of-the-art exhibit design, Southeast Asia's largest panda exhibit as well as the world's largest freshwater aquarium. Housing one of the world’s largest collections of freshwater fauna, the park features over 5,000 specimens representing 300 species. And that includes Singapore’s resident giant pandas, Kai Kai and Jia Jia.



Take a leisurely stroll and meander through the park on an exploratory river adventure of the Mississippi, Congo, Nile, Ganges, Murray, Mekong and Yangtze rivers. With the pristine Upper Seletar Reservoir as a backdrop, River Safari is also home to the Giant Panda Forest, Squirrel Monkey Forest and the enchanting Amazon Flooded Forest.



Congo River

Venture through the Mississippi River and get a rare inside-look at the home of the beavers. Go nose-to-snout with the rare Mississippi paddlefish and primitive alligator gar. As you travel down to the Congo River, stop and marvel at the world's largest freshwater puffer fish.



From one African river to another, flow down to the River Nile where the sharp-toothed tigerfish and the many-finned birchir reside. When you find yourself at the temple facade by the Ganges River, watch out for the crocodilian Indian gharial resting by the sandy shore. Here, you’ll also see the peculiar-looking softshell turtle and the goonch catfish. Head south of the Pacific Ocean to Australia’s Murray River to meet the barramundi, the Australian lungfish, the robber crab, and the Murray cod – Australia’s largest freshwater fish – which can reach 1.8 metres in length.



Mekong River
The Mekong River beckons with one of the world’s largest freshwater aquariums, which houses the magnificent Mekong catfish and the giant freshwater stingray. The Mekong catfish can grow up to 2 metres long and the giant freshwater stingray, an awe-inspiring 600 kilogrammes in weight!

Giant Panda Forest
Next, make your way down to the Yangtze River, home of the world’s largest amphibian – the giant salamander. Just around the corner, enter the Giant Panda Forest, home of Kai Kai and Jia Jia. Observe these adorable envoys from China as they roam around their naturalistic habitat. Spot the golden pheasants and red pandas that share this remarkable climate-controlled biodome.

Amazon River Quest
(Coming Soon)
No riverine expedition is complete without a ride down the Amazon River. At Wild Amazonia, set sail on an exciting adventure known as the Amazon River Quest. This ride takes you down the mysterious South American river where you’ll meet the amazing wildlife that come from the world’s largest tropical rainforest. Peer into the secret worlds of the spider monkey, maned wolf, Brazilian tapir and more. Venture into the deep, dark, jaguar cave, and try spotting the powerful predator before it spots you. From the river to shore, step into the Squirrel Monkey Forest. Short-furred and adorable, these monkeys are known to be highly intelligent primates that live together in social groups. (The Amazon River Quest boat ride and animal exhibits along this ride will not be available until later this year. In view of that, River Safari admission tickets will be sold at a discounted price.)

Amazon Flooded Forest
The Amazon Flooded Forest is another must-see ecological showcase. It is an immersive re-creation of the Amazonian rainforest, which gets submerged in up to 15 metres of water every year during the rainy season. Wander into the depths of this multi-level exhibit to witness an amazing underwater habitat for creatures such as the arapaima and the giant river otter.

After all that excitement, entice your taste buds at our specially-designed thematic restaurants. Feast on savoury Chinese fare at the River Safari Tea House located at the Entrance Plaza, or tuck in to delectable Szechuan cuisine and panda-themed bites at the Mama Panda Kitchen, right by the Giant Panda Forest. Visit the House of Kai Kai & Jia Jia to stock up on giant panda-inspired memorabilia and complete your adventure by taking home treasured memories of the River Safari with you from our unique underwater-themed retail shop, the River Safari Shop.

  2. This design is spectacular! You most certainly know how
    to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved
    to start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Excellent job.
    I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
