Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve nature tour


Tucked away in the north-western part of the island, this ecological gem is a mangrove forest. Covering only 2. 2 square kilometres, this is Singapore's first ASEAN Heritage Park and it is also a member of the East Asian Australasian Flyway Partnership.

From September to March, migratory shorebirds, such as the Common Redshank, Common Greenshank, Pacific Golden Plover, etc, can be seen in the reserve. Some will stop here to feed and rest before they fly further south and some will stay on until March when it is time to fly north.

You can see local residents such as mudskippers, crabs, spiders, birds, monitor lizards, and if you are very lucky, you may see some otters, and even a crocodile or two!

Itinerary

Meet at the Wetland Centre car drop-off location.

We will cross the Main Bridge,
visit the Main Hide
and walk the Migratory Bird Trail (~2km).

There are hides for animal watching and resting places along the trail.

The tour can be adjusted to suit your personal interests. Please drop me an email to discuss.

==========

Please wear comfortable walking shoes, neutral coloured clothes, and keep yourself well-covered.

Bring along a hat or umbrella to shade yourself from the sun, rain gear, mosquito repellent, lots of drinking water, and maybe some snacks.
