The Singapore Zoo is one educational and fun place that I won’t mind returning to every year or so. It’s big, the kids gets lots of place to explore, we are surrounded by nature and there’s always lots of interesting things to see and we never manage to see everything in a single trip.
This year we are back on a playdate with four boys. All the boys want to go to the water playground and we mums readily agree. The playground is almost at the end of the park and we will pass by most exhibits on the way.
Here are some of our favourite parts of what we got to see and do on our way to Rain Forest Kidz World where the playground is located.
Otters and Hippos
Watching the Otters being fed and interacting among themselves can be very entertaining. The kids are amuse. While we are at it, we learned some interesting facts of the animal from the many info graphics.
An area with glass panel enable us to see how otters swim under water while many info graphics help us learn facts about the animal.
The boys are excited when they arrive at the hippo enclosure. Where they are able to see Pygmy Hippo resting or swimming among fishes
Awesome White Tigers
We love watching the white tigers. The boys are simply mesmerized. There are many things to learn about tigers.
Kangaroos Feeding and the Outback
The main attraction to the outback is the Kangaroos! All the kids and adults are super excited as they bounce in to their feeding session.
We happen to get there near the feeding time, at 11.00 am. For a $5 donation, we get a bowl of feed for feeding a Kangaroo. Not all the kids ant to do it but it is a chance to get up close.
There are plenty of other things to see and explore at the outback besides the Eastern Grey Kangaroo. Gliders, blue tongue skink, pythons and many more. Kids can also pretend to be explorers driving an exploration truck or experience being an animal in a crate.
Check out the Elephants
Next, we drop by the Elephants of Asia show which takes place 11.30am & 3.30pm (Daily, weather permitting. ) There are plenty of informative and interesting display at the area and the boys hang out after the show .
The boys are fascinated as the elephants do their tricks. They are also intrigue by many snippets of information and display in the area. We pick up some fascinating facts like elephant poo can be use to make recycled paper and how they spent 18 hours a day eating.
The boy’s favorite is really a two level hut here they can climb up. There are lot’s more elephant facts to explore and see skeleton of elephant skull, their molar and poo as well as play some interactive games.
Coming up soon! The playgrounds at Rainforest Kidzworld at the Zoo.
