Furthermore in the evening we were also being brought behind-the-scenes for an exclusive kitchen tour at Night Safari’
s Ulu Ulu Safari Restaurant
(upcoming post) together with the company of Chef Kelvin Low
Our day programme started with "Jungle Breakfast with Wildlife

At the buffet line, there were both western-style and local morning delights such as fried bee hoon, prata, curry, rice, dim sum and etc.
There was also a special "Egg Station
" where omelettes were cooked on the spot base on individual preference.
|We started off with some western french toast, baked bean, sausage and etc and enjoyed it while watching the Orang Utan family. |
|Additional Toast, Muffins and Ham|

|After a hearty and excited breakfast, we moved on to the Fragile Forest for some behind-the-scenes activities. |
After a few minutes of ride, we stepped into a 20,000 cubic metre
flight area man-made rainforest which showcase various stratas of a rainforest.
At the rainforest, you could spot butterflies, lemurs, crowned pigeons, iguanas and mousedeer where they are able to co-exist in this breathtaking ecosystem.
The most interesting part of that morning programme was to be able to go behind-the-scenes tour at Fragile Forest. Everyone was so excited when our Guide, Julia bought us to the insect breeding complex of Fragile Forest.
For your information, this type of VIP behind-the-scenes
tour can be arrange via Wild Discovery Tour

After the behind-scenes tour, we headed to the Dock 2 for a boat rides
back to the Dock 1 where we were going for our Lunch with Parrot
at the Singapore Jurong Bird Park
On board the ride, the guide was telling us that as we cruise along the coast, if we were lucky we might spot animals such as monitor lizards, crocodile or even the white-bellied sea eagles. But sad to say, we did not see managed to spot any.
The fees for the unlimited boat ride is S$6.00/Adult
(3 - 12 years old)
