River Safari, Singapore Zoo

In June 2008, a new 15-minute cruise will be introduced which winds through the jungle-lined reservoir surrounding the zoo. The ride will be a platform for highlighting water conservation. It also serves as a ferry to bring visitors from the entrance to the furthest end of the zoo. In the next phase, exhibits will be built on either sides of the waterways to create a "River Safari" experience.

      but doesn't the reservoir provide drinking water to the people of singapore?!!!

      Yes it does! That's why only electric boats will be used. There is also a metre-wide storm drain which encircles the entire water-edge border of the zoo and night safari to trap any run-off from the site. All exhibits will have to be built behind the storm drain.

      Besides, the water is heavily treated before it is pumped into our taps.
