Mandai Wildlife Group is the steward of Mandai Wildlife Reserve, a unique wildlife and nature destination in Singapore that is home to world-renowned wildlife parks which connect visitors to the fascinating world of wildlife. The Group is driving an exciting rejuvenation plan at Mandai Wildlife Reserve, adjacent to Singapore’s Central Catchment Nature Reserve, that will integrate five wildlife parks with distinctive nature-based experiences, green public spaces and an eco-friendly resort. This includes two new wildlife parks – a bird park and a rainforest park that celebrates the natural wonders of Africa and Asia.
As the architect behind the new rainforest park, CPG is excited to bring to visitors a nature experience inspired by the tropical rainforest.
The new rainforest park experience will focus on the tropical rainforests of Southeast Asia and equatorial Africa. Through careful landscape strategies, visitors can expect an immersive experience with nature through rich flora and fauna habitats. The two-park experience brings visitors closer to animals indigenous to the rainforests through adventure and immersive play features.
“Working on this project enhanced my knowledge on the Rainforest and its varieties around the world and the animal species found in such rainforests. The experience and new knowledge enabled our multidisciplinary team to design and plan the rainforest park in a way that is sensitive to nature and the surrounding Central Catchment Nature Reserve, as well as recreating environments which are as authentic as possible,” shared Ar. Anthony Gabriel, the Vice President of the Architecture Group at CPG Consultants, adding that it was a great opportunity to work on a project that will allow the public to experience harmony with nature and is confident that the new rainforest park will connect locals and travellers to nature in unique ways that will trigger their senses and appreciation for biodiversity.
