Looking for a truly unique and memorable wildlife encounter in Singapore? Look no further than Breakfast in the Wild at the Singapore Zoo!

My family and I recently had the incredible opportunity to participate in this special morning tour and it exceeded all expectations. After the zoo opened, we were led to the orangutan habitat where a guide gave us interesting facts about their diet and behaviors as we watched them wake up.

Next, we went behind the scenes to the elephant barn and got to help prepare fresh fruits and vegetables for the morning feeding. It was amazing being so close to the magnificent elephants!

The highlight was getting exclusive access to the giraffe enclosure to feed and interact with them over a lovely breakfast. We fed lettuce straight from our hands to the friendly giants who came right up to our table. An unforgettable experience!

Besides up-close animal encounters, Breakfast in the Wild includes a delicious continental breakfast spread within the exhibits. It was a peaceful morning surrounded by nature and wildlife.

Definitely book well in advance since spots fill up quickly.
