On 26 May 1994, Mr Goh Chok Tong, the then Singapore Prime Minister opened the Night Safari. The idea for the Night Safari came about in 1985 when Mr Goh enjoyed a night tour at the Zoo so much that he proposed regular night tours, to be termed ‘Singapore Safari’.

The world’s First Night Safari was designed to replicate the excitement of being one with the wilderness at night.
