Night Safari Mystica 2013
Once a year, the night safari turns into a wonderland with mystical creatures inviting you into the deep dark forest. It’s fun for the whole family, and for Singapore. I’m so glad I live in Singapore where we have a world class wild life reserve , zoo and night safari. Where we had successfully bred some many animals in captivity. Such as the hornbills! So thank you to all the staff that made it possible, as well as a wonderful group of zoo docents who help out ever so often. More on conversation here: http://conservation.wrs.com.sg/
Ok the fairies actually look alot nicer- (see below). Aahahha except when you use flash photography! I’ll tell you one more reason not to use the flash – because your flash might blind or scare the poor little animals! so please hold your
horses. and be a responsible patron.
More on the microsite here at http://www.mystica.com.sg/ for those who want to read in detail.
New this year is the Animal Enrichment Trail
Where you can get a rare glimpse of how the animals receive their whimsical treats and let the safari’s knowledgeable Trail Guides wow you with interesting facts about them! Nature always inspires learning.
hint: Watch the guides give catnip to the fishing cats
and toys and durians and other goodies to the Civets
Tadah – daylight.
And when night falls…
what could be scarier than all the predators ……
Well mosquitoes of course.
So always be prepared! For me, I dutifully brought my stash of MosquitNO! to ward them flies off In Perfect neon colors that matched the whole glow in the dark, neon bodyart theme as well.
Check out the UV bodyart I got done 😉 this was done by Katherine from Little Crystal paints.Want something similar? Party Parlour offers UV bodyart painting services for events too! The paints glow in black light for a stunning effect.
Mystica 2013: Wildlife Wonderland
Tip: The Ulu Ulu Safari Restaurant serves up really delish food! nothing like a scumptious meal to start the tour or end at Opens 5.30pm – 11.00pm (Daily)
Taste Singapore’s all-time favourites dishes like chilli crab, chicken rice, briyani rice, chicken tandoori, ice kachang and more in a charming village setting. Experience the nostalgia of dining within the rustic allure of this wooden-furnished restaurant or opt for an alfresco setting and drink in the symphony of the cicadas, frogs and other night creatures while a herd of Ankole cattle grazes nearby.
The restaurant offers you a choice of buffet and a la carte dining. If you prefer a more private dining experience, the Chief’s Room, can accommodate up to 16 guests, while the Ulu Court can cater to a larger party of up to 100 diners. How fun.
How about getting married at the night safari ? *grins*
