This holiday season, you can expect plenty of action to keep your little ones and you busy at all four Wildlife Reserves parks!

Singapore Zoo has brought to life pre-historic giants like the Woolly Mammoth, Saber-tooth Tiger and Hornless Rhinoceros through the use of animatronic movements and soundscape. Embark on A Mammoth Adventure Back in Time and get to meet cavemen and Little Momo, the baby woolly mammoth, and try your hand at the various games and activities.

At night, you can discover about nature’s oddballs like the Southern Three-banded Armadillo and Sunda Pangolin at Night Safari’s Twilight Encounters through walking trail, interactive displays, and keeper talks.

And at River Safari, the lovable Disney Tsum Tsums have descended! Not only can you take adorable keepsake shots at the eight different photo points scattered around the park, you can also try your hand at an array of party games at the Disney Tsum Tsum Festival! In addition, when you complete at least two lines on the River Escapade Bingo card, you can redeem an exclusive Disney Tsum Tsum bag tag (while stocks last)!

This is your chance to meet one of the world’s rarest and most powerful raptor, the Philippine Eagle. Catch them at Jurong Bird Park, which is currently home to a male and female pair of them! Aside from that, you can immerse yourself in The Kings Fiesta, playing games and enjoying traditional performances. While you’re there, grab the chance to also get up close with vultures, feast your eyes on the Kings of the Skies Show, and meet the friendly eagle mascot! You can also experience the thrill of raptors swooping from above, honing in on their prey at the Bird’s Eye Tour: The King’s Edition!
