"Franco, Nicholas, Joey, Xueqi, Kee Bin are very hospitable and knowledgeable. My family and I benefited a lot in the sharing in the fun facts of various animals exhibits. The accommodation sites were clean, comfortable and provides a peaceful retreat from the city buzz."

— Gwen Ng, 9 July 2022

"The experience was great from the start. From the first greeting all the way to the end was fantastic. What I truly appreciate was the staff that was with us. I was very touched that they stayed on throughout the night to ensure our stay is comfortable and safe. I want to give an awesome shout out to Franco, Nicholas, Xue Qi, Kee Bin and Joey. They are truly gems!!"

"This is our second staycation with Mandai Wildlife Reserve and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The program is packed with fun activities and the facilitators go the extra mile to make the stay comfortable. We learnt a lot from all the trainers and facilitators and highly recommend the staycation."

— Sophia, 1 May 2022

"We enjoyed to come so close to some animals and feed or pet them and take fun photos together. We learned a lot from our guides Anthony, Kia Ling & James and the animal keepers, too. It was an exceptional and amazing staycation. The kids loved it as well and we added a full day at the zoo on our check-out day. Highly recommended!"

— Family Lange, 2 April 2022

"The guides and the tailor tour for the staycation make the different to the whole experience. This is my second staycation, the first one at river wonders blew me off with the back of the house tour and the close proximity our tent is to the manatees exhibit. Our zoo staycation was an unique one from the usual trip to the zoo. Love the location of our tent where you see the sunrise in the morning. Now, I am looking forward to my next trip — Jurong Bird Park!"

— Angie Goh, 1 April 2022

"I never knew I’d be so interested in learning about animal behaviors till I came to this staycation experience. The guides were wonderful and very knowledgeable during the tour. I would definitely recommend this to families as a family bonding experience."

— Max, 26 March 2022

"One of the best staycation. This is our first glamping staycation and my girl said that she never knew Zoo would be so fun. All the camp staff were so friendly & informative and well organized. A highly recommended stay."

— Neo Bee Hong, 16 March 2022

"This staycation experience has definitely exceeded our expectations. The facilitators and ICs were so engaging and make us feel very safe and relaxed. Will definitely recommend this staycation to families and friends for a good bonding time to know the animals better."
