The Singapore Zoo and the Night Safari are places that often come to mind when talking about visiting animals in Singapore. 

But if you wish to explore somewhere more unconventional, here are six places you can consider!

1. Hay Dairies Goat Farm

Established more than 20 years ago, Hay Dairies Goat Farm is the only goat farm in Singapore that specialises in producing goat milk. 

If it’s your first time on the farm, be sure to visit between 9am to 10.30am as that is their goat milking session.

Look forward to a hands-on experience of feeding the goats, or purchasing fresh goat milk directly from the farmers.

2. Gallop Stable

Horse riding isn’t something that we experience every day, but it should be something that’s on our bucket list.

At Gallop Stable, you can enjoy affordable riding and an opportunity to be up close and personal with horses and ponies without having to worry about membership fees or monthly subscriptions.

Whether you’re an experienced rider or a novice one, you can take in the lush greenery and nature of Bukit Timah on an off-road track on the back of a horse.


Gallop Stable also offers customised personalised trail packages for special occasions such as birthdays, proposals and Valentine’s Day! PHOTO CREDITS: INSTAGRAM/@GALLOPSTABLEOFFICIAL

3. Rabbit Headquarters

Despite being a pet shop, Rabbit Headquarters (RHQ) prides itself on raising rabbits by cultivating their temperament and caring for their health and well-being.

Even if you’re not looking to buy a bunny, RHQ offers animal lovers a platform to learn about the different breeds of purebred rabbits in Singapore, cuddle with the cutest bunnies you’ve ever seen and so much more!

4. The Live Turtle & Turquoise Museum

At a $10 admission fee (for Singapore residents) to the Live Turtle & Tortoise Museum, enjoy a rare glimpse of the world of these reptiles. You are also given the opportunity to pet and hand-feed some of them.

Do take note that picking up the turtles and feeding them outside food are not allowed for the safety of the animals.

Address: ORTO, 81 Lor Chencharu #01-16, Singapore 769198

5. Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom

This lesser-known attraction on Sentosa is one you should not miss out on, especially if you have a fascination with butterflies. 

Experience the scents, sights and sounds of an authentic rainforest at the Butterfly Park and Insect Kingdom as butterflies fly freely around you.

In addition to having an intimate encounter with these butteries, you also have the opportunity to interact with macaws and learn more about the insect kingdom.

6. Animal Lovers League

If you’re looking to volunteer at an animal shelter, Animal Lovers League (ALL) is an ideal place for you. A registered charity home to over 500 dogs and cats, ALL adopts a strict no-kill policy.

You can volunteer your time, energy and love to help take care of these animals, bringing the dogs out for walks and other necessary daily tasks.
