River Safari is a fresh & combined platform to discover some rare species of fishes and wildlife, brought from all around the world..special attraction are Giant Pandas and Red Pandas of course...also you can observe and experience different Rivers around our planet with their inhabitant details, River cruise, Amazon River quest boat ride, some live animal show, massive S.E.A aquariums and many more.. For the first time I came across anacondas, Electric Eel & Piranhas here .. Moreover, there are some friendly staff, have seen care takers ( seems they are school kids) cleaning the tanks from outside as well inside..must learn from them the way taken care of the wildlife.. Highly recommend place in Singapore, less crowded than zoo and night Safari by less covering time.
Wonderful experience going through the different exhibits. Guided tour was amazing with well informed staff. The river rides were refreshing and serene. Definitely worth the visit if you're around the area!
