Exploring the New Horizons at Mandai Wildlife Reserve

The Mandai Wildlife Reserve is on the brink of a transformative journey that will redefine your experiences with nature and wildlife. Located in the heart of Singapore, this 126-hectare destination is evolving into a sanctuary where the beauty of biodiversity is celebrated through a spectrum of new attractions and experiences.

A New Chapter with Mandai Rainforest Resort

In the first half of 2025, the Mandai Rainforest Resort, operated by the globally renowned Banyan Tree Group, will welcome guests. This eco-friendly haven features 338 rooms and 24 elevated seed pod-shaped treehouses, designed to merge seamlessly with the natural environment. The resort promises a ‘Conscious Stay’ with its commitment to super low energy (SLE) standards and biophilic design, ensuring that every stay is both luxurious and environmentally considerate.

Immersive Experiences and Adventure

Prepare to embark on adventures through the newly introduced Rainforest Wild Asia and Africa zones. These areas will transport you into the lush rainforests of Southeast Asia and the exotic landscapes of Africa, right here in Singapore. Featuring the first-ever integration of adventure elements in a zoological park, Rainforest Wild promises encounters with wildlife such as the Malayan tiger and the elusive Okapi.

Edutainment and Conservation

The Mandai Wildlife Reserve is not just about adventure but also education and conservation. The new Exploria and Curiosity Cove offer immersive educational experiences through technology-enhanced environments that simulate natural phenomena. Meanwhile, the Mandai Gallery and Green Canvas provide spaces for exhibitions and events that aim to inspire and educate about biodiversity and conservation.

Engaging With Nature

Beyond the ticketed experiences, the reserve includes freely accessible areas like the 3.3 km-long Mandai Boardwalk. This boardwalk offers stunning views and direct contact with the serene environment of the Upper Seletar Reservoir, making it a perfect spot for a peaceful retreat into nature.
