Here’s the latest scoop! Singapore’s wildlife parks will be located together in the new integrated destination that is being named Mandai Wildlife Reserve. While the ever-popular Singapore Zoo and Night Safari retain their names, River Safari is renamed River Wonders to better reflect the experience it offers of taking you on a meandering walk through the aquatic world of freshwater habitats.
Mandai Wildlife Reserve will also later welcome Singapore’s new bird park, replacing Jurong Bird Park. The new park, to be named Bird Paradise, brings you on a journey into the amazing world of avian wonders. Dedicated to bird conservation, it will house one of the largest numbers of threatened avian species under human care.
Rounding up the wildlife park experiences in Mandai Wildlife Reserve will be Rainforest Wild, which offers explorations within a rainforest setting where habitat, adventure, and animals are weaved together into one compact experience!
