Afternoon Zoo Itinerary

I would strongly recommend you to visit Singapore zoo in the morning, unless your schedule left with only half a day in the afternoon. Why visit Singapore Zoo in the morning? See morning zoo itinerary for details.

The crowd in the afternoon is definitely heavier than the morning. Avoid weekends, school holidays and public holidays if you can and when you are left with an afternoon visit. The obvious reason is that heavy crowd lead to more noises and lots of movements that scare away many of the animals. The result is you will encounter many exhibits with 'no show' in animals.

2.00-2.15pm Treetops Trail

Enter from here to Treetops Trail.

When you come early, the monkeys are there to welcome you and your family.

Your kids could easily spot at least one of the India Gharials just under the platform.

A rare chance to see two gharials so close by. All the while I thought there are only two gharials, in fact there are three altogether.

Go this way then turn left to White Tiger exhibit

Once exit Fragile Forest, follow this way to the main road then turn right to Reptopia.

Take a right turn to Reptopia. You will have to return back here after visiting Reptopia to proceed to Wild Africa.

Get in from here. It's a big exhibit with two main exits and a few side gates. Remember where you get in and get out from the same exit.

3.15-3.45pm Reptopia

I thought they are fake ones, as they don't move at all for as long as I can wait. But the eyes are blinking.

The above green iguana and toucan can be found outdoor by getting out from one of the side gates of Reptopia as shown below.

After exiting Reptopia, follow the slope down till you see a staircase on your right, get down the staircase to see the first exhibit of Wild Africa, the Fossa.

3.45-4.15pm Wild Africa

Don't walk on the main road, follow this path all the way to see the rest of the Wild Africa exhibits.

You can see the lioness up close behind a glass panel in an aircon room.

Cross the road after the Lion exhibit and follow this way to the Giraffe Feeding. 

Giraffe feeding last for about half an hour from 3.45 to 4.15pm. 


Don't miss the Cheetah exhibit. You may view them over the fence or behind the glass panel.

Go ahead then turn right to African Penguin.

Ahead turn right to African Penguin. Or go straight all the way to Shaw Amphitheatre for the Splash Safari show.

4.30-4.45pm African Penguin

The penguin exhibit was a huge ones in the past. It was packed with various types of cute penguins. Take a look at the below video to see how lively they are in the pool.

Backtrack to here after seeing the penguins and make a right turn to the Shaw Foundation Theatre for the show.

4.45-5.30pm Splash Safari Show

Among the four shows in Singapore Zoo, this is the most popular one. Personally I enjoyed this show very much. So, don't miss it while you are there.

After the show, backtrack to here. Cross the road and go straight to the Gibbon exhibit.

5.30-5.45pm Gibbon exhibit, then exit the zoo

One thing Gibbons can do better than us is that they can swing from here to there in a split seconds like nobody business. They are so proud to show off their skill as shown in the below video.
