Names and Identities Unveiled for Singapore’s New Offerings at the Mandai Wildlife Reserve

New experiences inspired by nature and wildlife are coming up at the Mandai Wildlife Reserve, which today is the home of Singapore’s wildlife parks – Bird Paradise, Night Safari, River Wonders, and Singapore Zoo. Later this year, the public will be able to enjoy a freely accessible boardwalk, which has been built along the edge of the Upper Seletar Reservoir. This will be followed by the opening of the much-anticipated Mandai Rainforest Resort operated by Banyan Tree in the first half of 2025. Singapore will also soon welcome its fifth wildlife park, Rainforest Wild, where visitors will be transported into the rainforests of Southeast Asia and Africa.

There will be a new range of nature-based edutainment activities housed within the indoor attractions – Exploria and Curiosity Cove, which will be conveniently located outside Singapore Zoo. The Mandai Wildlife Reserve will be rounded off with the addition of Green Canvas – a meeting and conferencing facility; the Mandai Gallery – an exhibition space narrating the history of Singapore’s zoological parks; Singapore’s only ZooSchool offering zoo-based adventure programmes curated specially for young children, as well as two campsites that will operate throughout the year. These exciting additions are scheduled to progressively open in the coming years.

“While we continue to focus on expanding our positive impact in the fields of nature conservation, animal wildlife and zoological research, we are excited by the prospect of immersing our guests in a wide array of nature and wildlife experiences at the fully opened Mandai Wildlife Reserve”, said Mike Barclay, Group CEO of Mandai Wildlife Group. “This integrated destination will be a unique gateway to many inspiring and respectful interactions with nature and animals, that Singaporeans and guests from overseas can enjoy.”

He added: “We are excited to unveil new options for stayovers, with the Mandai Rainforest Resort acting as the perfect launch pad for exploring our wildlife parks and the many other offerings at the Mandai Wildlife Reserve. We welcome Banyan Tree, the homegrown company with a globally renowned brand, as the operator of this new resort. We also look forward to presenting Rainforest Wild Asia, where parkgoers can navigate a Southeast Asian rainforest via various walkways that span the tree canopy, the forest floor, and a magical subterranean world of caverns.”
