The four walking trails in Night Safari—Fishing Cat Trail, Leopard Trail, East Lodge Trail and Wallaby Trail—offer the closest experience to a night walk in the forest for city-dwellers, with great views of nocturnal animals within natural surroundings.

Aside from the novel animal installations, guests can look forward to discovering mystical Milky Way patterns and shimmering letters embedded along the trails, which will unlock a chance at winning an exclusive elephant encounter. Guests visiting on Fridays and Saturdays over the event period can enjoy photo opportunities with our animal stars, high octane neon dance performances, animal enrichment sessions and more lustrous activities at Zebra Café to complete the shimmering extravaganza.

Guests can look forward to up close and personal photos with creatures of the night like the binturong and great horned owl at Night Safari’s entrance courtyard at 7.00pm on Fridays and Saturdays between 17 November and 31 December.
