SINGAPORE - Wildlife park River Safari has launched a cruise that will take visitors on a 15-minute scenic ride around the Upper Seletar Reservoir.
Visitors have to pay a top-up fee of $5 for adults and $3 for children aged between three and 12, in addition to admission tickets to the park.
The cruise plies the man-made lake along the outskirts of the Night Safari and Singapore Zoo. Visitors may spot animals such as giraffes, elephants and rhinoceros on the edges of both parks.
They may also see native species such as the long-tailed macaques and water monitor lizard which live in the surrounding rainforest.
The new attraction replaces the previous boat ride at the Singapore Zoo, which closed on March 31 this year. Unlike that ride, which was to get visitors from the entrance of the zoo to its furthest point, the latest cruise brings visitors on a round-trip scenic journey along a different route.
The River Safari Cruise runs daily from 9.30am to 5.30pm. Each cruise can accommodate up to 50 passengers and can accommodate people on wheelchairs.
Tickets can be purchased online or at the park's Boat Plaza, and boarding is on a first-come-first-served basis.
