Why settle for a hotel staycation when you can spend the night in an air-conditioned bell tent with the flamingos instead?
Jurong Bird Park is offering wildlife lovers a chance to experience exclusive interactions with its feathered friends at its Staycation with The Flamingos. This two-day-one-night staycation lets you interact with flamingos and other birds, join feeding sessions and get special insights from guided tours of the park’s aviaries.
As night falls, enjoy a hearty dinner and a flamingo-themed craft activity before retreating to your personal bell tent, equipped with two double beds, for the night. The tent, located right by Flamingo Lake, can accommodate up to four persons.
Wake up to a pink sunrise, as a sea of flamingos greet you in the morning. You can feed them their first meal of the day before tucking into your own breakfast.
The staycation will be available from 10 June to 30 July and bookings can be made here. Check in at 4pm and check out before noon the next day.
