Don’t let the hassle of planning a trip amidst travel restrictions get in the way of enjoying a unique getaway with your loved ones! Whether you are an animal lover or just seeking a new thrill, Staycation in the Wild is a must-do wildlife adventure for everyone. From 16 December 2021 to 19 March 2022, the unique two-day-one-night experience is the perfect way to rediscover Singapore Zoo.

Cosy into the night with bespoke accommodations, experience the splendour of rainforests with our open and vibrant exhibits, befriend a critter at a meet-and-greet, and be charmed by our parks’ residents through delightful feeding sessions.

Start the afternoon by getting acquainted with our enigmatic herd of Asian elephants during a special feeding and chit-chat session with their carers. Your private guide then whisks you into Wild Africa for an encounter with some of the tallest, fastest and largest creatures on land. Befriend our white rhinos and feel their warm breaths as they retrieve a sweet treat straight from your hand. Let our charismatic California sealion enthrall you and share how to better care for our seas and planet at the Splash Safari show. Then eternalise a picture-perfect moment with our splashy star!

Refuel with a hearty dinner before wandering through a symphony of lights, complete with beautifully orchestrated music and interactive play at Rainforest Lumina. The multimedia night walk will inspire everyone to appreciate nature, protect wildlife and conserve biodiversity. Sing and engage with virtual animal friends from the Creature Crew as you enter interactive play zones, dance through a digital thunderstorm, and take a stunning laser and projection display on how ‘We Are One’ – where humans and nature are interconnected.

Retire for the night nestled in an air-conditioned dome and wake up beside the tranquil Upper Seletar Reservoir. Wrap up the enchanting experience with a special meet and greet session with a mystery animal ambassador. For more details, visit here.

For guests who prefer getting up close with aquatic animals, River Wonders’ Staycation with the Manatees will also be available during this period. Guests can look forward to drifting to sleep while watching our manatees, experience exclusive behind-the-scenes sessions and meet our captivating capybaras at the Once Upon a River Show. Bookings are available from today at Klook: Staycation in the Wild here.
