HOT OFF THE PRESS: Brand New KidzWorld Debuts At Singapore Zoo!

Newly-Minted Home Of ‘The Ranger Buddies’

Brand new KidzWorld at Singapore Zoo opens

Calling all parents and kids in Singapore, the eagerly anticipated KidzWorld at Singapore Zoo is here, and it’s a world of adventure you won’t want to miss! Opened by Ms. Jane Ittogi and Mr. Mike Barclay, Group CEO of Mandai Wildlife Group, this one-hectare wonderland, also known as the Home of the Ranger Buddies, promises unforgettable experiences for families.

Imagine a place where learning and fun are woven together, where kids get to explore, learn, and play. KidzWorld builds on Singapore Zoo’s rich heritage of offering exciting animal encounters and endless play opportunities. It’s a fantastic upgrade from the beloved Rainforest KidzWorld (2009) and Children’s World (1991), and it’s all about making the world of animals come alive for your little explorers.

An Adventure Like No Other

KidzWorld isn’t just a petting zoo; it’s an adventure playground where kids can immerse themselves in the animal world. From interactive play areas to getting up close and personal with our furry and feathered friends, this is where the magic happens.

Home of the Ranger Buddies

KidzWorld is not just about fun; it’s also the Home of the Ranger Buddies. This edutainment program is designed to prepare your child to become a future-ready and responsible global citizen. They’ll learn how to drive positive change for themselves, others, and the world.

Ranger Buddies Quest

It’s an exciting, interactive adventure that will take your kids on a phygital mission, armed with smart binoculars and a companion app. They’ll visit outposts, equipped to learn about animal health, animal care, and animal nutrition.

Building Courage and Character

As your child participates in Ranger Buddies activities at KidzWorld, they’ll explore the seven essential C.O.U.R.A.G.E. strengths, or life skills, that equip them for the future. Each of these traits corresponds to a zone in KidzWorld, encouraging your child to grow and develop.

A Seamless Transition for Our Animal Friends

To create a new home for their 250 animal residents representing 30 different species, the Animal Behavior and Programs team began conditioning them in June 2023. The mini migration took place on October 21, 2023, ensuring a smooth and safe transition for the animals.
