Hakuna Matata. It’s time to put your worries away and join us for a fun-filled day!
Welcome to the Circle of Life Festival. This day-to-night wildlife experience promises to take you on an extra wild adventure to explore what shines in the light and what lurks in the dark.
Meet the real animals seen in Disney’s The Lion King like Mufasa, Simba, Timon, Pumbaa, the laughing hyenas and other favourite characters from Pride lands.
The centrepiece of the festivities features a savannah themed moving tram with musical performers starting from Singapore Zoo’s Wild Africa zone. Watch real life meld with reel life as the procession makes its way past animals such as the meerkat, mandrill and lion, the real life counterparts of characters Timon, Rafiki and Simba. Follow along to watch the human performers depict how lions go through life’s journey and don’t miss the photo points that call back to the key moments of the movie including the iconic Pride Rock scene. Singapore Zoo’s signature school holiday activity, Zoolympix, returns for its 15th instalment themed around the Circle of Life festival. Embark on the self-guided trail and complete challenges to learn about the important ecological roles of animals of all shapes from the tall giraffes to the tiny invertebrates and earn exclusive animal pins to boot.
Gear up for the upcoming movie with real live animal action in the Circle of Life wildlife tour. Embark on an unforgettable interactive wildlife experience and feed the white rhinoceros, meerkats and cheetahs. Finally, test your mettle and see if you can match the pull force of a full-grown lion.
