NileGuide Expert tip:
The best time to visit is during the bird's migratory season between September and March.
The Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve is set in 130 hectares of mangroves, mudflats and secondary forests. This peaceful oasis has become well known for its abundant birdlife, particularly during the migratory season of September to March when huge flocks of shorebirds, such as Egrets, Sandpipers and Plovers visit the Reserve. Although a popular destination for bird enthusiasts, the Reserve is also home to an amazing diversity of other interesting plants and animals, including Otters, Monitor Lizards and if you are lucky, you may spot an Estuarine Crocodile.
There are three walking routes to follow, ranging from 3km to 7km in length, and a 500m Mangrove Boardwalk that leads from the Visitor Centre.
Free guided tours are available on Saturdays at 9.30am (except on Public Holidays). Each tour is limited to a maximum of 15 people per guide and is on a first come first served basis.
