The full 15 mins long Amazon River Quest Boat Ride in 2 mins! River Safari's Amazon River Quest Boat Ride is a slow, open-top boat ride that allows visitors to meet close to 30 species of animals living along the edges of the Amazon River. Animals featured include the jaguar, Brazilian tapir and giant anteater.
The boat ride is a very popular attraction at River Safari so my advice is to book your timeslot as soon as you arrive. River Safari opens from 9am and it's best to reach there between 9 to 10 so that you can book your Amazon Quest Boat Ride. Limited seats are available and timeslot bookings are based on a first come first served basis.
The Giant Panda Forest at River Safari Singapore is the largest panda exhibit in Southeast Asia, and home to giant pandas Kai Kai and Jia Jia. The upper region of the Yangtze River is where the elusive giant panda calls home. One of the world's most adored and protected rare animals, this peaceful creature is considered a national treasure in China. With only 1,600 giant pandas left in the wild, it has become the world's most recognised symbol for wildlife protection and conservation.
The Giant Panda Forest is also home to the red pandas. The red panda, also known as the lesser pandas is said to be the original panda, having been discovered about 50 years before its giant counterpart. Also known as the firefox due to its bright rust-coloured furry coat and fox-like face, the red panda is slightly larger than size of a domestic cat. it shares some similar traits with the giant panda as both feed predominantly on bamboo and have extra "thumbs" to hold their food.
Which is cuter? Kai Kai and Jia Jia or the red pandas? I prefer the red pandas!
River Safari is the newest addition to Wildlife Reserves Singapore's portfolio of award-winning parks. It is nestled between Singapore's two award-winning wildlife parks -- Singapore Zoo and Night Safari.
