This features eight walk-through aviaries, each representing different habitats from around the world. Here, one can see and hear the natural behaviours of many bird species as they journey through transitional zones that connect the various habitats. Bird Paradise boasts top-of-the-line support facilities, including a state-of-the-art avian hospital and an extensive breeding facility.

As a wildlife conservation organisation, Bird Paradise plans to provide a  platform to advance its education programmes and capacity-building initiatives, and protect threatened bird species across the region. The habitats within the park are alive with the songs and natural behaviours of the birds, from flight to feeding, nesting, and foraging through the undergrowth.

The Heart of Africa is a key attraction that transports visitors to the forested valleys of continental Africa. With an elevated canopy experience, visitors can observe birds displaying their natural behaviours in a dense, misty forest with meandering forest streams. Similarly, Wings of Asia recreates stunning bamboo forests and sloping rice terraces of Southeast Asia. Beyond aesthetics, the bamboo forests serve as a food source for the animals living in the habitat and the terraces create a unique ecosystem for birds like the critically endangered Baer’s Pochard and endangered Milky Stork. Penguin Cove is another highlight of Bird Paradise. This indoor habitat is designed to be home to penguins such as the Gentoo Penguin, King Penguin, Humboldt Penguin, and Northern Rockhopper Penguin. Visitors will have a fascinating opportunity to observe the oceanic life of these birds.

And if you're a fan of feeding sessions, you're in luck as you will be able to do so with new species like Starlings, African Hornbills, and Barbets at Heart of Africa, Pelicans at Wings of Asia and Lories at Lory Loft. That's not all! The new ungated public node, Mandai Wildlife West, located next to Bird Paradise serves as a quaint gateway to the new park with offerings like playgrounds, dining, and retail options. Adrenaline junkies, fret not because they have you all covered too. The iconic Singapore Cable Car is launching Pokémon-themed cabins as part of its 50th-year celebrations and we can not keep calm.
