Guests get a preview of freshwater habitats from iconic rivers of the world such as the Amazon River, Mekong River and River Nile as they step into River Safari, the latest of our award-winning parks. It also happens to be Asia’s first and only river-themed wildlife park, occupying 12 hectares and housing one of the world’s largest collections of freshwater animals. 

The river calls and when you answer, you’ll be treated to an unforgettable adventure featuring over 6000 animals across 200 species – of which 40 are threatened.

Most of our river-themed wildlife park can be explored on foot. Guests will meander through the park on an exploratory river adventure of the Mississippi, Congo, Nile, Ganges, Mekong and Yangtze rivers, peering into our freshwater aquariums and luscious walk-through exhibits.

They can hop aboard the Reservoir Cruise to enjoy the surrounding nature and snap scenic photos. 


We will play a role in global conservation efforts through our captive breeding programmes. Through them, we hope that aquatic animals such as the manatee and giant river otter can have a fighting chance. 


The park is also planning research initiatives, such as a tagging and tracking project for giant freshwater stingrays in Thailand that will contribute to the conservation of endangered animal species in their native habitat.

Soon enough, our visitors will experience an even more enthralling journey. Through a diverse offering of interactive in park activities such as enrichment programmes, interdisciplinary trails and workshops, these immersive experiences are set to engage senses and provide a unique, hands-on experience for students and teachers alike.

River Safari was designed with the environment in mind, and is the first attraction in Singapore to receive the Building and Construction Authority’s (BCA) Green Mark Platinum Award in the Park category.


Delving in deeper, our visitors will get to experience an up-close look of our iconic Giant Pandas in an intricately designed climate-controlled exhibit along the Yangtze River zone.
