Treetops Trail

Being the first immersive experience that welcomes every visitor at Singapore Zoo, this zone begins at the Rainforest Courtyard right at the entrance of the park leading on to an elevated platform through the forest canopy, a pathway that brings visitors closer to nature and its wildlife.

The sun-drenched recreation of a clearing in the depths of a rainforest, the lush plantings of trees, a cascading waterfall as well as a jungle pond are home to a group of rainforest animals. You may not spot them right away, so take your time as you make your way to the Treetops Trail ahead.

Do also keep your eyes peeled for the free-ranging brown lemurs and the white faced saki monkeys who may surprise you by swinging by to join in the fun. Just a note of caution though, the elusive false gavial may be lurking beneath the boardwalks, so beware!

Brown Lemur

The brown lemurs are skilful jumpers who move from tree to tree with ease and use their tails for balance when needed. Interestingly, the lemur's tail is usually as long as or longer than its body!

Cotton Top Tamarin

Our frisky friends from Central and South America swing around as they please in the cluster of trees at the Rainforest Courtyard. These small, white-maned primates live in social groups of up to 12 and they range freely so don’t be surprised if they play a little game of peek-a-boo to welcome you.

False Gavial

Scan the waters below the bridge for a fearsome visual treat. The false gavials are good at concealing themselves in the murky depths of their naturalistic swamp habitat with their dark brown coloured scales and their eyes and nose on top of the head that enable them to see what’s going on even when they are mostly submerged.

Siamang

Observe these acrobatic and agile gibbons, as they swing from the branches of trees effortlessly. At certain times of the day, our mother and son pair, Anna and Simbu will vocalise together using loud booms and barks as they sing the siamang ‘song’. If you look closely, you will see a large grey throat sac inflated to a size similar to that of the siamang’s head which help to amplify their calls to ear-splitting levels.

White-faced Saki Monkey

Among the lower levels of the forest canopy, you might see these calmer black-furred tree-dwellers with a distinct white face. These free-ranging white-faced saki monkeys move mainly in leaps and can make jumps of close to 10 metres. This has earned them the nickname “flying monkeys”.
