After dark adventures of fantasy and mystery await at Twilight Encounters

25 OCT 2018
Twilight Encounters returns with an after dark adventure of fantasy and mystery—this time triple the wild factor with the first ever Festive Pop-up market in the heart of Mandai, Wildlife Cluedo at Night Safari’s walking trails, and the exciting multimedia night walk experience that is Rainforest Lumina.

Go wild in Mandai this year-end, with an array of after-dark adventures of fantasy and mystery at the 2018 edition of Twilight Encounters. Immerse yourself in the first ever Festive Pop-up Market, try your hand at Wildlife Cluedo along Night Safari’s walking trails and end the night with Rainforest Lumina – a multimedia night walk on the wild side



Immerse yourself in a medley of art installations, musical performances, photo booths and Insta-worthy food and drinks at the Festive Pop-Up Market. Be sure to stop by the wildlife-themed Personalisation Workstops and get snap happy with the light installations. Let our nocturnal entourage of hedgehogs, owls and more fascinate you, and listen to stories galore from their keepers. Walk away with an owl selfie, and a priceless memory of feeding hedgehogs!

At Night Safari, channel your inner Sherlock Holmes and trek through the Walking Trails to solve the mystery of Wildlife Cluedo while uncovering the cool adaptations of our animal residents. Receive an exclusive collectible pin as a reward for your investigative efforts when you complete the trail.

After meeting our Malayan tigers at Night Safari, encounter their virtual cousin Tairee the white tiger and the rest of the Creature Crew at Rainforest Lumina—a multimedia night walk on the wild side. Inspired by the real animals in Night Safari and Singapore Zoo, each member of the Creature Crew represents a unique virtue. Pick one that resonates best with you and uncover their powers during the experience.

For an extra wild visit, indulge in the Christmas edition of the popular Safari Adventurer Tour. Aside from enjoying a cosy buggy-and-walking adventure with an expert guide, help our elephant keepers put together a Christmas hamper for our biggest residents and gift it to them during an exclusive feeding session. How’s that for a Christmas worth remembering for years to come?
