Singapore is a great place for people who love nature. Apart from the huge buildings and architectural marvels, Singapore has been really successful in preserving its natural beauty. One such great example is Jurong Bird Park. The entire park is spread around an area of 202,000 square meters making it world's largest bird park. This park is home to over 600 bird species which are places in several distinct aviaries. Let us take a look at the specialties of some of the aviaries:
African Waterfall: At this aviary, you would find birds like shoebills, black-masked birds, saddle billed storks, etc. Along with this, a massive man-made waterfall also awaits you at this aviary which resembles the African Rainforest.
Jungle Jewels Flight Aviary: The Jungle Jewels Flight Aviary is a replica of the South American rainforest and has birds that are indigenous to this area. Here, you would be able to see red-crested cardinal, yellow-hooded blackbird, toucan, etc.
Lory Loft: Lory Loft is an Australian themed aviary where you would see Lories. Not only could you see them but you also get the chance to feed, play and interact with these beautiful creatures.
Southeast Asian Aviary: As Singapore is a Southeast Asian city, it is imperative that the place has a Southeast Asian themed aviary. Here, you would see a large collection of Southeast Asian birds, most of which are endangered and rare.
Apart from the beautiful aviaries, the Jurong Bird Park is also the proud owner some amazing attractions like the Heliconia Repository where you can see the Heliconia flowers and the Bird Discovery Centre where you can gather some interesting information about the world of birds.With Jurong Bird Park tickets, you can experience all this and much more
I admit that I haven't seen so many species of birds in my life before taking the Jurong Bird Park Tour. Taking the tour made me felt that I really did a favour to myself. Watching the birds living in such an eco-friendly environment filled us with reverence for the park's authority. The fun part of the tour was the chance to see and feed the beautiful Lories.
The Jurong Bird Park is a piece of heaven for nature lovers. The park is a massive site where walking requires a good stamina. We enjoyed watching shoebills, back-masked birds, storks, toucan, yellow-hooded blackbird, and other birds
