Zoobic Safari Day 2 of Prince's 2nd Birthday

After checking out at Horizon Hotel, we headed straight to Zoobic Safari. I believe it's just a few kilometers away from Ocean Adventure. Di siya mahirap hanapin dahil may mga signage sa dadaanan mo kaya kahit walang Waze makikita mo siya.

Pag nakita mo yung signage na Zoobic Safari This Way, medyo malayo layo pa bago makarating sa entrance. Ang kaibahan ng Zoobic Safari sa Ocean Adventure ay ikaw bahala sa oras mo. So walang schedule na sinusunod kung kelan pupunta sa mga attractions nila, you have your freedom to explore at sulitin ang pamamasyal.

Unfortunately, walang available promo sa Metrodeal that time so I paid for the regular rate. After paying from the entrance, we entered the Bird Walk and Zoobic Park.

Medyo iritable pa si bagets diyan dahil kagigising lang niya. Zoobic Park is a two-hectare forest wherein guests will have a mini-trekking experience to see exotic, wild and semi-domesticated animals in their simulated natural habitat. Here you can explore different types of animal such as birds, beercats, camel, bunnies, ostriches, potbellies, wild boars, and guinea fowls, etc. 
Isa sa mga naenjoy ko pati na din si Prince, etong bird feeding. For only ₱20.00/pack pwede ka ng magpakain ng mga ibon. Don't worry may bantay naman at papalapitin niya yung mga ibon sa pagkain na hawak mo. Hindi kaya naooverfeed yung mga ibon? Dapat pala natanong ko yun. Mga 5 packs din binili namen, kasi sobrang enjoy si bagets.

Aside from bird feeding, we also tried camel feeding. Mabibili mo yung camel food (di ko alam kung anong tawag sa dahon na yun) for ₱50.00.

When we exit, my parents went to Serpentarium while me and my husband, nagpahinga na lang kame dahil napagod kami sa paglalakad at si Prince puro pakarga. Serpentarium is an old ammunition bunker where you will see a showcase of various species of reptiles like snakes, lizards and  turtles.

Sa tabi ng Serpentarium, yung waiting line for Zoobic Train. This is for all of the guest para di mahirapan maglakad papunta sa next attraction. Layo layo kasi yung mga attractions.

Please forgive me if I can't give full details of our trip since it's been several months now. I remember the first attraction we visited was the Forbidden Cave.

Zoobic Cave and Forbidden Cave Bunkers used by the Americans before which were converted to house preserved/stuffed animals, animal robotics and an array of surprises. Nakakaamaze lang how they preserve yung natural appearance ng animals even though they are already dead. Mostly they are wild animals. Medyo madilim nga lang sa room. After that we went to Lion's Den.

Dito po yung cage ng mga lion and tigers. Nung pumunta kami, siesta time ata nila kasi halos lahat sila nakahiga lang at tulog. Medyo natakot lang si Prince nung may nagroar kaya binilisan na lang namen.

Baka sabihin niyo yung mga animals nakakulong kawawa naman. Hindi po lahat. While going to the next attraction, you'll see a lot of land animals like zebra, goat, deer, horse and guinea pigs. And they can move freely inside the safari.

After that I believe we went next to Museum of Eggs and Animal Muzooeum which has a rare collection of real stuffed animals, bone collections and preserved animal skin. Tapos pinababa kami sa waiting area for Tiger Safari.

Tiger Safari a hold on to your seats as you enter a two-hectare enclosed area aboard the customized Safari Jeep and experience the thrill of being chased by full-grown tigers on the loose! Hindi naman siya dangerous at may kasama kayong professional sa loob ng jeep.

Ang maganda nito, kung ilan kayong magkakasama, kayo kayo lang sa loob ng Jeep. So kahit 2 lang kayo, hindi sila magpapasakay ng ibang tao. So it's like you can have the entire jeep exclusively to enjoy the trip. Bago ka pasakayin, tatanungin ka muna kung bibili ka ng bucket of chicken for food. I suggest to make your trip worth it, avail the bucket kasi hindi lalapit yung tiger kapag walang food. The chicken bucket cost ₱200.00. Promise nakakatuwa itong Tiger Safari.

The last attraction we visited was Croco Loco.

Grabe ang daming crocodiles. You can also feed them with a raw chicken. Itatali siya sa bamboo stick tapos saka mo ipapakaen sa mga crocodiles. Hindi naman siya nakakatakot dahil may mga harang naman at hindi naman sila wild. Medyo natakot lang si Prince nung tumalon yung crocodile para abutin yung food. The crocodile food cost ₱100.00/bamboo stick.

After Croco Loco, you may ride a train again or walk through the forest and visit the Aeta's Trail. Have a glimpse of the beauty of our Native Aeta Brothers' culture as they perform some of their traditional dances.

After that di na kami nanuod pa ng Animal Show, we went outside for our late lunch.
