Singapore Zoo is one of the most beautiful and most visited zoos in the world. It is built according to the concept of "open zoo" - there are no fences, cages or bars. Animals are separated from visitors only by moats with water and logs, which creates the effect of observing them in their natural habitat. The animals presented here are, first of all, exotic animals, inhabitants of tropical latitudes, most of which are on the verge of extinction
The River Safari is a brilliant addition to the main Zoo, a sanctuary that is home to the land-dwelling inhabitants of Asia's and the world's most famous rivers: the Mississippi, Congo, Nile, Ganges, Murray, Mekong and Yangtze. Under the park's roof, one of the world's largest collections of freshwater fauna has been assembled with over 6,000 animals, including river giants such as the giant river otter, giant salamander and giant Mekong catfish. In all, there are more than 300 species, including 40 endangered species. And the park's special pride is the giant pandas Kai Kai and Tia Tia, specially brought here from China.
