Day Trip to the River Safari

Since Miley has started to recognize animals and is able to name a few like monkey, fish, giraffe, penguin, bear, lion etc, we decided to bring her to see some of them over the weekend. And since we've already been to the Singapore Zoo on her first birthday, even though it was already 8 months ago, we went to the newly opened River Safari located just next to the Singapore Zoo! The River Safari is a river themed animal attraction where it houses the the Giant Pandas, Kai Kai and Jia Jai, and also giant fishes from all over the world such as the Mekong Giant Catfish, Piranhas and Manatees aka the mermaid. Since the attraction has not fully opened, only about two-third, we paid a discounted admission fee of $25 instead of $35 per adult. Free entry for Children below 3 years old. Even though its not fully open, there were still plenty to see and took us 3 hours to leisurely tour the whole place. And the best part is that everywhere is sheltered, except for the monkey attraction where the little squirrel monkeys were free to roam in an enclosed outdoor habitat. No sweat!

Hello Pandas! That's Kai Kai the outgoing one...
And that's Jia Jia the shy one that can only be watched from the CCTV...

At the exit we were given a preview of the giant polar bear from the main zoo.

Beautiful view form the deck. Could see a group of birds opposite which I believe were migrating storks...
hide and seek playtime with mummy...
Cute squirrel monkeys that came so close...
Last stop at the Amazon Flooded Forest where Manatees swam gracefully. Spot the baby Manatee.

It was a fantastic day out. I have to say that the Singapore Zoo including the Night Safari and River Safari are one of the the best attractions in Singapore. Nothing beats being so close to nature and surrounded by gorgeous animals.
