What you'll do

If you are looking for a unique experience IN SINGAPORE, you've come to the right page!

This activity will be conducted at night, when the forest comes to life! We'll start off with some basic rules, how to actively participate and what we might hopefully find. Having done that, you will join me in the activity which will last approximately 2-3 hours.

You might experience the slight humidity of Singapore but other than that, we emphasise on safety and this is definitely suitable for all ages!

We will be using our senses to pick out the creatures of the night. You will be able to learn from us how to appreciate the tranquil sounds of the forest, identify quirky insects and learn how to spot one yourself!.

There are tonnes of critters around the walking paths and they offer a fantastic introduction to Singapore's hidden wildlife ; fruit bats, owls, forest ants, roosting birds, quirky bugs, different species of frogs, large snails, snakes, scorpions and plenty more!

This is an immersive activity and as such, guests have to actively participate together. I cannot guarantee sightings/animals but we will try!

However, what I can guarantee is my knowledge, enthusiasm and more importantly being a local friend instead of a commercial tour guide so feel free to ask me anything and everything about Singapore! @untamed_paths
Other things to note
Come with an adventurous spirit! We'll be observing from a safe distance but do bring your cameras for some shots. Customised timings can also be arranged prior.

Hellooo, I'm Dennis and a young modest naturalist at heart. Born and raised in Singapore, my passion lies outdoors from diving in the blues of Sipadan to the breathtaking heights of Rinjani! With regards to wildlife, I've interned at research institutes and have extensive field experience with animals in Southeast Asia.

My hobbies and interests include nature photography, diving, trekking and wildlife observation. Equipped with an educational background in both veterinary science and business marketing, I now spend my days (and nights) treading between both fields.

I'm also a certified divemaster, boater and medic. An avid traveller myself, I love interacting with new people, building relationships and exchanging stories! Check us out at The Untamed Paths!

Was pleasantly surprised, the forest was teaming with life. My guide Xiaoyun uncovered shy tarantulas sheltering in borrows , tiny finger nail sized scorpions (they glow in the dark when shined upon by a UV torchlight - who knew?), warty toads & charming frogs by the streams. The highlight of the evening was the abundance of flying lemurs hanging from the trees - females with babies scurrying up and down the tall tree trunks. First time seeing them in the wild, seems like they were hiding in plain sight all this time. Great for nature geeks, or parents who want their children to be more connected to actual wildlife as opposed to eh.. pokemon creatures 😂

Dennis showed us things that we never would have found or even known to look for on our own: a flying colugo, scorpions glowing under UV light, freshwater crabs, an owl ... It was great to see the ways in which the forest comes alive at night! And Dennis knows a lot about the animal world, so we learned a great deal. Highly recommend this new way of seeing nature in Singapore.

We had a great time on a night tour with Cloud! It's obviously impossible to have any expectations when it comes to wildlife, but it's so great to learn more about the forest and all creatures in it, from pangolins to tarantula. But the highlight of the tour was obviously finding colugos - were even lucky enough to watch one fly! All in all - a highly recommended activity for all curious people.
