We reached the River Safari at noon. At that time, it was drizzling and we thought we might have to miss the exhibits. Thankfully this attraction is about 95 % sheltered thus making it a perfect place for wet weather activity. In addition, this park is child friendly, so bring your strollers along if you need to!

After a long adventure, naturally one would get very hungry. There are 2 restaurants to choose from at the River Safari. The first is the River Safari located at the entrance serving over 60 Singaporean and Chinese dishes.

So is River Safari a must go attraction?
Compared to the zoo, it does not have as much animals nor does it have a children play area. In addition, there is a lack of animal shows compared to both Singapore Zoo and River Safari ( there is one but it is not publicized on the website or brochure )
However, the best part of it , is that it is sheltered and in parts air conditioned. Most important, you get to catch the Giant pandas Kai Kai and Jia Jia.It was a good stroll round the park, seeing mostly aquatic animals.
We reckoned it would make a good rainy day attraction to visit. Would the Amazon River quest be the game changer? Only time will tell...
