Singapore Zoo is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Singapore. For a lot of people, It’s a place they must visit when they go to Singapore. We went to the zoo a few times when we just moved here, but then we had never gone back for years. Carla was only one year old the last time we went there and Renan had never been to the zoo. So, last week we decided that it was time to go and see the animals….
Carla and Renan were happy to see the animals. Here is a photo of Renan with some pygmy hippos.
Carla loved to see the penguins, and also the monkeys and apes.
We wanted to see some animal shows, but we were too early for some and too late for others :(.
It was still too early to see the Elephant at Work and at Play show, so we just sat in the amphitheatre and watched the elephants playing and taking a dip in the pond.
We managed to watch just one show, Rainforest Fights Back. It was quite fun. There were a lot of animals involved, including lemurs, birds, otters, and snakes.
You can check here for show times.
Next, we went to Rainforest Kidzworld.
Renan didn’t feel like getting wet, so Mamae stayed with Carla, and Papai went with Renan to the playground.
When Carla finally finished playing in the water play area, we went to join Papai and Renan in the playground. We had a great time playing in the playground, but what the kids really enjoyed was crossing the pond on a raft. It was super fun, and we crossed the pond so many times!
Another thing that the kids really enjoyed at Rainforest Kidzworld was feeding the goats. We also went to see the ponies and falabellas, but Carla and Renan kept coming back for the goats. We gave them leaves that were left close to the pen just to feed the goats.
It was almost closing time when we left Rainforest Kidzworld, so we took the tram all the way to the last stop, not far from the entrance.
We had a great time at the zoo, although we only covered less than half of the place. Next time, maybe we’ll start in the morning….
