Animal Lovers, Rejoice! You Can Go On A Staycation At Singapore Zoo

Go wild

Staycations are great, but let's be honest, they can sometimes be a little too mellow especially for those who are thirsty for an adventure. Why not indulge in some fun, local experiences instead? Unleash your inner wild child with a luxe wildlife staycation at the Singapore Zoo. Yup, that's right. You can now have a safari-like experience with this unique two-day-one-night escapade without leaving the country.

Get cosy with Asian elephants through a special feeding session and afterwards, you can have a chat with the carers to know more about these magnificent creatures. Your itinerary will also include a private guide of the Wild Africa section to see some of the tallest, fastest and largest land animals. You'll even get to have a close encounter with Singapore Zoo's white rhinos as you feed them with a sweet treat. The next stop would be a seat at the Splash Safari Show which will star a charming California sea lion. Rounding off the night is a hearty meal at the whimsical Forest Lodge where a beautiful orchestra will be playing as you eat sumptuous food.

What's more, is that you get to do all these wildlife adventures in style. Each Staycation In The Wild package (priced at SGD1,499) includes a stay at a luxurious air-conditioned dome tent stationed in the Upper Seletar Reservoir. The space can accommodate up to four people and is furnished with two comfy double beds, a fan and wildlife-themed decorations to get you in the mood.

Those who prefer to have an aquatic adventure might want to opt for the Staycation With The Manatees programme (priced at SGD999) instead. A bespoke glamping tent will be set up for you right by the world's largest freshwater aquarium where you can sleep beside playful sea creatures.
