This is quite a popular attraction, so be sure to book your tickets in advance.

Take a Night Safari


Night Safari was the first zoo to implement the nighttime safari. In most zoos across the world, animals are medicated and kept awake during the day, when in reality, they are most active during the night. So, for people to experience animals in their more natural habitat, the Night Safari was opened in May 1994 on 86 acres of rainforest land. It has been a hit with tourists ever since, as they get the chance to see a zoo at night. Among the 100 species of 900+ animals housed here, 41% are endangered so this place also does a good job preserving them. Seeing the animals at night in their element is something that can only be experienced live.
