Lonely Planet review
Set on a peninsula jutting into the Upper Seletar Reservoir, the Singapore Zoo is world class. Its 28 landscaped hectares and open concept (no cages) are a far cry from the sad concrete confines some zoos retain.
There are more than 2530 residents here and most of them, with the possible exceptions of elephants used in a ride, seem pretty happy. Attractions such as the ‘The Great Rift Valley of Ethiopia’ enclosure convey entire ecosystems: animal, mineral, vegetable and human. Visitors can stand behind a window in ‘Ethiopia’ and watch 50 shameless red-bummed baboons doing things that Singaporeans still get arrested for. The popular proboscis monkeys sit on tree branches in two different enclosures, scratching and swinging more than their arms.
