We took the MRT going to Ang Mo Kio, got off at the station and waited for bus 138 to take us in the Night Safari. It was about an hour traveling time before we arrived to our destination. Excited as we were, we posed in front of the Night Safari signage designed with torches on both sides that greeted us upon arrival. We paid S$28 for the entrance fee and the tram ride that will take us around the 40-hectare secondary forest.
Aboard the open-air tram, the lights were dimmed and the tourist guide warned us from taking flash photography. Truly, you’ll never know what those animals would do when they see a flash of light. The tram ride took us through various animal exhibits, namely, Himalayan Foothills, Nepalese River Valley, Indian Subcontinent, Equatorial Africa, Indo-Malayan Region, Asian Riverine Forest, South American Pampas, and Burmese Hillside.
What’s good about the tram ride is that you can hop off and hop on at the various stops. We hopped off at the Equatorial Africa area near the giraffes. Two sloth bears gave us a fright as they had a small skirmish. We were supposed to grab something to bite but food is a bit expensive here. We decided to walk around the periphery and found ourselves staring at a majestic view of the reservoir. Then, we continued with our tour.
Capping our tour was a night show at the amphitheatre. The host knows how to greet the audience in various languages that made the tourists light up as they hear their mother tongue being spoken. Then one-by-one the animals did their own acts. One particular scene was a woman from the audience who apparently lost her pet snake. Well, it was all part of the act but that got the audience jumping.

Of note: you'll probably want to take a taxi to get here, as it's toward the north of the island. Buses come here, but if you have a few people, the taxi is worth the money.

If you’ve been in real forests, if you’ve seen the real thing, the Night Safari looks obviously contrived. It’s a trifle too crowded, and many of the people are noisy and loud- behaving more beastly than the beasts. But despite all that, it’s an impressive collection and an excellent experience- one to definitely opt for if you’re in Singapore.
Entry to the Night Safari is S$15.45 for adults and S$10.30 for children under 12.

If taking photos, make sure your flash is turned off – unfortunately, some people did not follow the guides' requests regarding this and the flashes are disturbing to the animals.
The Night Safari is well serviced by public transport. A taxi will cost approximately S$15.
