More and more glamping opportunities in Singapore are cropping up, but there’s one in particular that puts a unique spin to the adventure: glamping with manatees. This holiday season, animal lovers of all ages can spend an unforgettable night right next to these gentle giants at River Safari.
The manatee sleepover is a new type of staycation that lets wildlife enthusiasts interact not just with manatees, but also with a range of other friendly creatures like giant pandas, capybaras, and more. For now, the Glamping with Manatees experience is on a limited run from December 21 to 27, 2020. If you’re planning to snag tickets for this incredible adventure (or even just visiting the park for a tour), here’s what else you can expect at River Safari in Singapore.
Say Hello To Giant Pandas, Adorable Critters, And A Mystery Animal!
The animals are definitely the best part of visiting River Safari, known as the first and only river-themed wildlife park in Asia with one of the world’s largest collections of freshwater species. As part of the glamping package, travelers can explore the park, embark on a guided tour, and engage with the most adorable park inhabitants!
First, make your way through the park and greet the lovable giant pandas lounging around in the bamboo forest. Discover the charm of monkeys at the Squirrel Monkey Forest where a troop of squirrel monkeys is jumping and chattering at all hours of the day. Learn more about the cheeky primates from the Squirrel Monkey Forest keeper. Roam the grounds to marvel at the variety of creatures who call the park their home, from giant river otters to alligator snapping turtles.
The glamping experience also includes a ticket for the Once Upon A River! show that includes animals like capybaras and great white pelicans. At the end of the day, travelers will enjoy an up-close encounter with a mystery animal before turning in.
Enjoy A Sleepover With A Manatee Family At The Amazon
Of course, the highlight of the experience is a sleepover with the majestic manatees. Nestled in the air-conditioned Amazon Flooded Forest exhibit, the glamping site is a cozy space that’s inviting to travelers of all ages with comfortable air mattresses, pillows, and blankets. With tranquil blue waters surrounding the dreamy bell tents, river and ocean lovers will love dozing off next to the aquatic habitat of River Safari’s manatee family.
