Step into the Lush Tropical House

Guests are transported to a tropical rainforest, complete with its signature sights, sounds, and smells. Home to a myriad of exotic species, the Tropical House offers a multi-sensory experience.

What is a Tropical Ecosystem?

A tropical ecosystem may range from rainforests and dry forests to deserts and spiny forests. Examples of these ecosystems can be found far and wide, from Puerto Rico and Costa Rica to Madagascar and South Africa.

Meet Amazing Mammals

Mammals form a diverse group of warm-blooded vertebrates. Unique characteristics of mammals include fur or hair, a special jaw structure, and milk production for their young. Astonishingly, over 6,495 mammal species are known, with approximately one-fifth facing conservation concerns.

Discover Spectacular Birds

Over 9,000 bird species inhabit the Earth, exhibiting a plethora of shapes, sizes, and feather patterns. At the park, guests can interact with colourful parrots and feed lovely Lorikeets.

Behold Beautiful Butterflies

Butterflies captivate with their colourful wings, created by thousands of tiny, overlapping scales. Part of the insect group called Lepidoptera, butterflies undergo complete metamorphosis, transitioning from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis, and finally into a stunning adult butterfly.

Daily Animal Talks and Feeds

Note that the daily schedule is subject to change. For the most current timetable, check social media or inquire upon arrival.

Animal Feed Bundles

Enhance the experience by feeding animals like otters, meerkats, and porcupines. Feed bundles can be added to online bookings or purchased on the day, subject to availability.

Family-Friendly Play Areas

Children and adults alike can dig into the sandpits, splash about in the zones, and engage in themed play areas like the Realms of Camelot and the Dino Trail.
