It houses 4 species of penguins such as the Humboldt, Rockhopper, Macaroni and the majestic King Penguin. These penguins are just so cute and adorable and how’d I wish we can cuddle even just one of them. They swim around their enclosed cold pool to the delight of the visitors.

BIRDS  & BUDDIES SHOW
This is a not to be missed bird show as it is very exciting, interesting and fun as these birds can do tricks and can make us laugh. Visitors can join the show and can even get up close with some of the birds.

LUNCH TIME
Our hungry stomachs lead us  at Bongo Burgers and Hawk Café.  I craved for burgers so me and my nephews came with me.

LORY LOFT
We boarded the tram that took us at the LORY LOFT where we had the opportunity to feed the birds. This aviary is home to beautiful lori birds that are also heady to be fed and photographed with you.

LORY FEEDING
You can actually feed these beautiful red, yellow, green and blue Lories inside the aviary. They actually fly and come near you once they saw you holding their food. At first, I was so scared but got excited when they stepped on my head, hands and body. This is a MUST-TRY experience when you are inside Jurong Bird Park.

Look… 3 Lory birds are on me!

AFRICAN WATERFALL AVIARY
This is home of more than 1,200 birds that are free flying as well. The rainforest paths and mangrove swamps will connect you to nature indeed. There is also a 30-ft man-made waterfall inside this walk-in aviary.
