Singapore Zoo and River Safari 2016

It seems like a yearly affair to visit Singapore Zoo and River Safari. Singapore Zoo is one of the best rainforest zoo in the world.
I was here last year in July and this year I'm back again.

I took a train down to Choa Chu Kang. After which, cut through Lot 1 to their bus stop and wait for bus 927. It will take you to Singapore Zoo.

Learning lesson from my last visit, we went to 7 eleven at Lot 1 to purchase mineral water before heading to zoo. The stuffs sell at zoo is overpriced. We reached the zoo at 1 plus in the afternoon.

Malyan Tapir.

They are one of the 5 species of Tapir and Malayan Tapir can be easily identified by their black and white body.They are closely related to rhinos and horses. In fact, they are the only tapir species in Asia.

White Tiger.

Everytime I visit, the white tigers were usually sleeping. I guess afternoon is their nap time.
The white tiger habitat is landscaped to resemble a dense jungle clearing.

Caught these birds stood root on the ground and staring at us. So I did a naughty thing, I banged on the fence to test the reaction of them. Woot, they did jerk a bit.

Reached Great Rift Valley.
Treated to a view of the majestic mountains, rugged terrain and waterfalls of the Great Rift Valley in Ethiopia.

The lonely polar bear swimming in the pool.
It just kept swimming round and round, the same old spot, doing same old routine.

White rhinoceros.
They are the second largest land mammal after the elephant. They usually feed on short grasses.

The big cats all love to sleep in the afternoon, just like the white tiger.
They are always sleeping whenever we visit.

Zebras are closely related to horses and donkeys.
Their black and white stripes work like camouflage, making it appear unattractive to smaller predators.

We arrived at the Giraffe feeding time and saw some visitors feeding the Giraffe. They do have long tongue that will leave saliva on the visitor's hand.

One lonely Giraffe that didn't join the feeding.
Being tall and able to reach out to the leaves on the trees, Giraffe spends most of the day eating.

Even the leopard was sleeping too.
Leopard and cheetah looks so alike, I always have a hard time differentiating them.
How I differentiate is that Cheetah's spots is solid black.

The view from tropical crops.
It brought serene and peace to me. Taking a break from our busy lives and admiring such a view makes us appreciate the nature beauty more.

I love visiting the goats at Rainforest Kidzworld.
They are so many of them and they will come look for you when you feed them with leaves.

We went back to the polar bear habitat on our way out to enjoy the aircon.
And we discover the bear has come up from the pool for some sun tanning. A nice of the polar bear.

Since it's only 4pm and time was early, we headed over to River Safari since my friend has never been to River Safari.

The Mekong giant freshwater stingray and giant catfish, the world’s largest freshwater animal species.

Kai Kai just loved eating.
He seemed to be very happy eating the leaves.

With the pandas, so adorable.

They are one of the world’s most adored and protected rare animals. With only 1,600 giant pandas left in the wild, there is a need for wildlife protection and conservation.

Dropped by Mama Panda Kitchen for Panda Pau.
That's so called my lunch. The pau wasn't very fantastic but good for photo-taking.

It was a picturesque sight that I couldn't resist not taking photos when we passed by. 

Since I have took before the River Safari Cruise, decided not to take this time as there wasn't much things to see except for the green scenery.

Brought the birthday boy to River Safari because he has not visit before. 

We took the Amazon River Quest.
This wet and wild journey gave us an unique perspective on life along the mighty river.

Ended our River Safari tour and call it a day.

Happy birthday in advance to my buddy, hope you have an enjoyable day out to Zoo and River Safari. Hope you like this birthday outing.
