I couldn’t really count the number of times I’ve been to Zoobic Safari in Subic but every trip is always as amazing as the last. A few hours drive to the north is always worth it to see and appreciate wild life at its finest. And this is what the Zoomanity Group‘s goal is – to bring joy to every guests that visits, not just to give an enjoyable experience but to educate as well.
Up in the north, there is Zoobic Safari in Subic Freeport. It’s like a huge adventure at the forest. You really have a close encounter with the animals in the area. They aren’t caged in a far area where you can’t even admire the animals’ beauty. You can take a picture with the baby tiger or the snake. You can feed the parakeets, bearcats, camels and the tiger too. It is really an amazing experience to be exposed to these animals that it would help you understand them.
The newest attraction in Zoobic Safari is the Lion Safari, where in you will also have a chance to have a close encounter with a lion, which is the same as the popular, Tiger Safari.
Another attraction in the north is the Zoocobia Fun Zoo, also situated in the Clark Freeport Zone. Aside from it is a beautiful place to view animals, there are also activities that will make your experience complete and fun, as well as educational. There is a gravity car, which is the Zooc, is patterned after the luge in Sentosa Resort in Singapore. There is also close encounters with colorful birds perched on tree branches. There is also a showcase of various animals and plants which only the Philippines have, talk about Pinoy Pride in here. There is also a maze with animal topiaries and a barn where you can even experience bottle feeding farm animals like goats and sheeps. (photos from the website)
After a tiring day at the parks, you can check in at Zoobic Lodge (Tiara, Corwn Peak), also in Clark Freeport.
Now, let’s go to the South. Visit PARADIZOO Farm in Mendez, Cavite. Enjoy nature while having a great time with your family and friends. Animals are also roaming freely around the area, so for sure you will also have a close encounter with them. Not only you enjoy viewing the vegetables, plants and flowers but also you can take them home.
After your trip to the farm, you can relax at the Residence Inn in Tagaytay and stay there for the night and enjoy the breath-taking view of the Taal Lake. There is also a mini zoo which will is great enough to be appreciated not only by kids, but by adults as well. Dine at their restaurant, the Gazebo for authentic Filipino food.
In Manila, you can stay at the Azotea Suites condotel in Makati. Furnitures from the hotel rooms are made of solid hardwood which all came from the forests of Subic where Zoobic Safari is located.
If you chance upon going to Bohol, be sure to drop by Zoocolate Thrills, the only adventure theme park situated in Loboc, Bohol. Aside from a river cruise at the Loboc River, there is also a fun zoo where you can also experience animal encounters such as tigers, ostrich and bearcats.
So why not take a break and spend your time with your family and friends at any of the Zoomanity Group’s attractions. I’m pretty sure you will have a memorable time with them. I, myself is looking forward to bringing my 17 month old son to Zoobic and the other zoos pretty soon!
