Who said nights have to be filled with quiet and rest?

Things that go bump in the night congregate at the Night Safari. The world’s first wildlife park built for night visits is nestled in 40 hectares of lush secondary forest and inhabited by 1,000 animals from 100 species. When the sun goes down, the wolves, racoons, owls, hyenas, and all their nocturnal friends, come out to play.

Watch them strut their stuff at the Creatures of the Night show, where they will show you how they catch their prey and what it takes to survive in the animal kingdom.

- A conservation centre for the breeding of rare and endangered species.

- Divided into almost 2 equal halves - the East Loop and the West Loop covering 8 geographical zones.

  • The Indian Subcontinent
  • The Himalayan Foothills
  • The grasslands of Equatorial Africa
  • The Asian Riverine Forest
  • An island dotted lake of a Nepalese River Valley
  • The South American Pampas
  • The Burmese Hillside
  • The dense jungles of the Indo-Malay Region

Animals show: The 'Creatures of the Night' show offers animal contact opportunities and features a cougar, a binturong, a civet and an otter.

- Daily at 8.00 p.m. and 9.00 p.m.

Walking trails:

  • Three walking trails (each a half kilometer long), well lit and gently undulating, allow you to observe the animals - like the leopards, tigers, Cape buffaloes, African bongos, blue sheep, striped hyenas, golden jackals and the rare one-horned rhinoceros - without disturbing them.
  • The Fishing Cat Trail
  • The Leopard Trail
  • The Forest Giants Trail
  • A 'Mangrove Walk-through' features free-flying bats.

Tram Ride:

A 45 minute tram journey, with live commentary, traverses both loops, passing by a large reservoir and weaving through habitats designed to replicate the natural environment.
