We were late. As always. Drove straight from KL. Not as early as I we intended to. Too knackered from the wedding the night before. It was raining cats and dogs in Johor. And I was thinking...how to camp in this kind of weather??? God listened to my prayer. Always. The moment we reached the zoo, the weather was perfect. And it remained perfect until we finished the program. Alhamdulillah.
Kids got the chance to feed the baboon with bananas.
Next stop was the reptiles lab.
We took a boat ride to the camping site.
Participants were briefed on how to pitch a camp.
All camps were set and ready.
After pitching up the tents, we headed to Night Safari for dinner.
Dinner at Restaurant Ulu-Ulu. A very sumptious dinner for "campers".
Next, we boarded the tram. Look at the queue to the Night Safari. Horror!!
Creatures of the night show.
Little Missy volunteered herself to light up the camp fire. They were having trouble lighting the fire up. Once they started pouring more kerosene, I freaked out and asked Mr O to mind Little Missy who's very excited and got a tad too close to the fire.
It was a bright starry night. My camera didn't do justice. Perfect weather to camp.
We played some games.
The kids singing the Singapore zoo song. We had lots of fun. Tired but fun.
The scenery that greeted us in the morning.
Early morning stroll in the zoo. Pretty nice to walk around without the crowd.
Buffet breakfast with orang utan at Ah Meng Restaurant.
There were some animal shows during breakfast too.
After breakfast we continued the program with behind the scene session at Fragile Forest.
Creepy crawlies lab.
You can obtain more information about the program from here. I think it's a twice a year program. One in June and one in December. The one in June will be from 8th-9th June. Registration will be closed at 40 pax. Places got filled up pretty fast. If you are interested, do reserve your spot early.
