The label "Ulu" is generously applied to any out of the way place where nature is still somewhat untamed and wild. Really ulu places have plenty of wilderness and rustic charm to offer. Contrary to popular belief, there are still places left in Singapore that match the above description. Ulu Singapore is founded by an experienced nature guide - Robert, specialising in taking the curious and adventurous on guided nature walks to the remote and rustic corners of the city.

We had a great time on our walk at Sungei Buloh wetland reserve . Our guide Robert is a treasure trove of knowledge and through his expertise we were able to see huge crocodiles , migratory birds , mudskippers , monitor lizards and other animals . He also taught us about the mangroves and the role they play in conservation . Our 7 year old son thoroughly enjoyed watching the wildlife through his telescope . Robert is very passionate about nature and his many of years of experience is evident as he can point our various secrets of the mangroves that you would otherwise miss so highly recommend going with ahem ! We also encountered a huge crocodile on the trail and Robert showed us how to watch is safely . Overall, this is a hidden gem in Singapore where you can see the eco system thrive . Great walk and we will definitely do more with Robert ! Please support his walks ! Thanks Robert .

Robert of Ulu Singapore was very patient and knowledgeable. He pointed out many things in the reserve that we would have missed and he also shared many insight not just the wild life that we saw, but also the mangrove. With Ulu Singapore, we saw a huge variety of wild life including the giant mudskippers (trip highlight), birds (e.g. grey heron, stock), crabs, a snake, bats, and of course, the crocodiles. He set the tone for his tour by showing us how the weaver ants (commonly known as the fire ants or "karipok" ants" made their nest in a leaf of a bird nest fern.

Robert is an absolute gem! His knowledge and passion shine through and made our walk around Bukit Timah Forest Reserve really interesting. Makes you look at nature and foliage with new eyes and gets you to appreciate so much more. Can’t wait to do more trips with him and discover new facets of this island we call home! Really great!
