1. Close encounters of the aquatic kind

The massive Mekong River exhibit, which is as large as four double decker buses, will take your breath away as you witness the world’s largest freshwater stingray swim by you just inches away.

Be enchanted by the Amazon Flooded Forest which draws you into the mysterious world of manatees as you walk through the world’s largest freshwater aquarium exhibit.

While these two exhibits are favourites with regular visitors, this December, River Safari takes your river experience up a notch with the launch of the new Mary River exhibit!

For an amazing interactive experience, your little ones (and you) can dip your hands into the water and touch marine creatures such as sea stars and bamboo sharks. We can already hear the squeals of excitement from the little ones!
