Fancy a breakfast in the wild while interacting with Orangutans? You can do so at Singapore Zoo now as its breakfast programme makes a return after a two-year hiatus. 

The Breakfast in the Wild, renamed from Jungle Breakfast with Wildlife, will feature a spread of environmentally-friendly food.

The food items are cooked using sustainably sourced ingredients such as palm oil, while the OWA coffee uses beans that are grown naturally under the shade of trees in Java, Indonesia. 

Beef is not included in the menu due to its “high environmental impact”.

Alongside the meals, there will also be photo and interaction opportunities with animals,  including the Tamandua, Coatimundi, Macaw and Orangutans. Their appearances are subject to weather and animal conditions.

Breakfast in The Wild is located at the Ah Meng Restaurant (Terrace) and is available from 9am to 10.30am on weekends and public holidays.

Tickets cost $45 for adults and $35 for children aged six to 12. 

Those planning to visit are encouraged to make bookings at least three days in advance. Walk-ins are subject to availability, where seating is on a first-come first-served basis.
