Discover and appreciate reptiles through a diverse range of activities, including enlightening animal enrichment sessions, reptile-inspired craft activities and costumed charm-eleon meet and greet sessions.

As part of the RepTopia experience, the ever popular Zoolympix returns for the 13th year. This year’s edition—Zoolympix 2017: Reptile Revolution—invites you to turn your ewws to awws! Embark on the trail to change your perception of these awesome and charismatic animals. Discover reptile-y skills, defensive moves and more cool facts through games and rep-tivities.

For those who can’t get enough of wildlife, consider joining us for the first ever Camp Fest 2017! Make a date with our animal friends over the weekend of 27-28 May at Night Safari, River Safari or Singapore Zoo with one of three camping options.
