Zoobic Safari

Part of the #Mendiolables Summer Adventure is a "balik tanaw" of places we used to frequent when the kids were younger. Zoobic Safari in Group I Ilanin Forest Subic Bay Freeport Zone is one of our favorite places so we went back to check if Julia, Rafael and Juan will still enjoy the place and to see the new activities they offer.

Verdict: We still enjoyed Zoobic Safari, especially the crododile feeding, and tiger feeding. We're particularly happy with tour guide, Ellaine, who incidentally was celebrating her 18th birthday that day.

Tips: Do your trip in the morning. Be there at 8am to fully enjoy the place minus the uv rays.


About Zoobic Safari and its attractions:

Zoobic Safari is a 25-hectare amusement park presenting a once-in-a-lifetime experience for you and your family. Far from the conventional zoo, Zoobic gives you a chance to meet these wonderful animals up close and personal, promote awareness and concern for their species thru education/information given by our competent Tour Guides, a unique avenue to commune with nature and most of all, experience an adventure like no other here in the country: A close encounter with the biggest members of the cat family. This may very well be the closest  thing to a real animal jungle safari around here in the country.

Many wild ostriches roam free here and many times try to run alongside your vehicle. Some of these guys may attempt to get a closer look at you and your vehicle, even to the point of a peck or two at your vehicle window.

Zoobic Park

Meander through and interact with, pet and enjoy displays of a diverse array of animals from many regions of the world.

Thrill as a 400 pound tiger easily jumps on top of your safari vehicle while he eats a whole chicken. A once in a lifetime adventure experience riding in a safari jeep were you will enter in a c close fence structure and be fascinated to see the live tigers roaming around as they thrilled you with their vibrating growl.
