Celebrate the nation's 53rd birthday with the wildlife park's fellow Singaporeans

26 JUL 2018
This National Day month, sprint into Singapore Zoo for an up close and personal encounter with little Singaporeans Deka the cheetah, and Oban, Asha and Vita the white rhinos. For the first time ever, the Zoo’s signature Wild Discoverer tour presents a National Day edition where guests get the exclusive opportunity to feed the younger members of the white rhino family and watch an exciting cheetah conditioning session.

Singapore Zoo’s locally-born cheetah is waiting to welcome visitors during the special National Day edition of the Zoo’s signature Wild Discoverer Tour. Watch her keepers working with her during an exclusive conditioning session. You might just get a chance to help in the training process!


Spend a weekend morning on a guided nature ramble in Singapore Zoo. If you’re lucky, you might even spot native wildlife such as colugos, monitor lizards and long-tailed macaques. Not an early riser? Then embark on the WILDerful Singaporean Trail at your own pace, across our three day parks. Discover more about the diversity of Singapore’s fauna—including the majestic oriental pied hornbill, diminutive lesser mousedeer and adorable Asian small-clawed otter. Remember to catch some of our wildest residents saluting the nation’s sovereignty during the animal presentations too!

Complement the National Day celebration with a feast of local delights at Singapore Zoo’s Kampong Mandai. Indulge in treats such as delectable yam cake and tenderly grilled satay. For those Instagrammable moments, sip on a “Lion City” Cappuccino, topped with a dusting of cocoa in the shape of the Merlion, or tuck into an SG Chicken Cottage Pie, proudly decorated in red and white.
