Sungei Buloh Wetland reserve is a park filled with rich biodiversity and extensive mangrove forest. As you hike along the area, you will be able to chance upon different species of birds and a variety of fauna and flora. I manage to catch a glimpse of mudskippers, birds, monitor lizards and many different spiders.
However, do note that pets, cycling, rollerblading and fishing are not allowed within the reserve. Hence, this is a straightly walking experience to explore the place. There are also free guided walks available during weekend and registration for Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve tours is required, limited to 20 people on a first-come, first-served basis. This place maybe not be such an ideal place to bring very young kids but an excellent place for nature lover!
This reserve is a magical, peaceful part of Singapore where you can get away from the crowds and just quietly enjoy the mangroves, forest and mudflats and bird watch... guided by the wonderful guide who’s infectious passion and intimate knowledge for/of the park soon has you excited to learn about mangroves, mudflats, migratory birds, local wildlife (eagles, kingfishers, herons, egrets, songbirds, insects, mudskippers, crabs, crocodiles, spiders (I would love to tell you more but it would spoil the surprise)....for nature lovers who want to see some real Singapore wild life in a natural setting rather than in an aviary at the zoo I highly recommend you get out your camera, rain gear, bug spray and trail shoes and do this tour. With guide to expertly guide you on a personalised tour at whatever pace and ability you can manage you won’t regret taking this tour.
