  • Why Visit River Safari?

    Why Visit River Safari?Why Visit River Safari?

    Housing over 6000 animals across 200 species, and 400 plant species, River Safari Singapore is an experience you just cannot miss! Out of the 200 animal species present in River Safari, 40 are threatened, making the place even more special. Guests can explore the park on a thrilling adventure along the Mississippi, Congo, Nile, Ganges, Mekong and Yangtze rivers, where they can get a good look into the freshwater aquariums and the rich walk-through exhibits.

    Beyond being just a fun experience for families, River Safari Singapore takes an active part in global conservation efforts pertaining to many species of flora and fauna. With their captive breeding programmes, the park management hopes to give aquatic animals, such as the manatee and the giant river otter, a fighting chance. Also, in an effort to make the conservation of endangered species a global effort, there are many interactive in-park activities such as enrichment programmes, interdisciplinary trails, and workshops. The main idea behind these immersive experiences is to engage the senses and provide a unique, hands-on experience for everyone.
