More About Ranger Buddies



The mission experience comes alive in Mandai Wildlife Reserve through Ranger Buddies Quest.  Children can participate in the experience by renting a pair of Ranger Buddies Quest Smart Binoculars for a day. Binoculars can be rented at $15 each. Discounts for Friends of Wildlife and WildPass applies.

Each mission consists of 6 activities (3 outposts-based and 3 binoculars-based). Children can claim a mission completion pin by completing at least 3 out of 6 activities, of which at least 2 must be binoculars-based.

Parents will have to download the Ranger Buddies Quest Companion App.

Ranger Buddies is designed for children aged 4 to 10 years old.

Ranger Buddies missions and reward pins are specially tailored to engage children between the developmental stages of 4 to 10 years of age, and hence may not be suitable for older participants. However, we welcome you to explore our other conservation initiatives that may be more aligned with your interests and age group, like our Adopt An Animal programme.

Reward Redemption

Physical reward pins are given out to all participating children who complete the missions. Digital badges are also given out on the mobile app upon completion of a mission.

For every 6 activities that the children complete, they will also unlock accessories that they can customise.

Singapore Zoo

  • Vending machine at KidzWorld
  • Ranger Buddies Base Camp
  • Ranger Buddies Quest Information Counter at Singapore Zoo’s main entrance

River Wonders

Our missions do not need to be completed within the day. Please feel free to come back another day to complete them. Reward pins are only awarded upon completion.
