Making Learning Fun

Head into the Monochrome Maze in Singapore Zoo to discover threats faced by wildlife from poachers and bulldozers, and exit the maze with a better understanding of how everyday actions impact wildlife.

At River Wonders, children can play at the Panda-monium Playground and pretend to be just like Le Le, Singapore’s first Giant Panda cub, and engage in all elements of play in this panda-themed space.

Those visiting the Night Safari will get to capture insta-worthy photos amidst falling snow at the Naracoorte Cave or visit the new animal exhibit and get acquainted with new residents, the Tasmanian Devils.

The Black & White AR Animal Trail spans across the parks featuring interesting photo opportunities and fun facts about the charming monochrome residents. Those who complete the trail will receive an exclusive Festive Wild-erland keychain.
