Experience Wildlife at Ark Avilon Zoo

We visited Ark Avilon last year so this is one of my pending backlogs. Atleast hindi ko siya sinukuan at naipost ko pa din. I was looking for a place and activity to spend with on a weekend and I found this on internet. I checked reviews and any promotions. I saw discounted tickets on Metrodeal so I purchased it.

ARK AVILON ZOO is the only indoor interactive zoo in the Philippines located in Frontera Verde, Pasig City. With a two storey building resembling the biblical Noah's Ark. ARK AVILON ZOO is home to various friendly animals that guests can interact with.

Pagpasok mo etong mga eagles and bubungad sayo. You can take pictures with them but make sure don't tease them.

On your left side is the ticketing area. We showed our Metrodeal vouchers and stamped us at the back of our hands. The staff told us, the ticket is for whole day so we can go back anytime that day. The regular rate for adult is ₱500.00 and for 3ft and below it's ₱300.00. We got the tickets for ₱259.00 so we saved almost 50%.

Eto makikita mo pagpasok. Merong mga tigers, lions and other types of animals sa gilid na nakakulong but you can view using glass window. It's a good thing may mga bench for people to rest and kids to play with. Infairness hindi naman mainit sa loob kahit hindi siya aircon.

Hindi ko na napicturan yung iba dahil medyo madilim. Sa may kabilang side you can view and feed the crocodiles. You can avail a chicken bucket for ₱200.00 inside the souvenir shop infront of the ticketing area.

We actually enjoyed it especially my son. I don't know kung anong meron niyan pero sobrang gusto niyang magpabalik balik sa mga crocodiles. Lalo siyang natuwa nung nakita niyang kumakaen sila. After feeding the crocodiles, we went upstairs to view other animals.

Sa second floor ng ark, you'll see more birds, snakes, goats, pigs, tortoise and rabbits.

You can also feed animals here. You may buy carrots and kangkong leaves for ₱50.00/bundle or stick.

On the other side, there's more birds to encounter with. This time you may touch and take a picture with them. May bayad nga lang ang interaction which is ₱50.00.

According from their website they were called Winged Wonders  named Bigbird, C2, Red, Remington and Alden.

Meron din silang Orangutan named Venus na palakad lakad. You can take pictures with Venus for ₱50.00.

Another picture taking opportunity is with Tyson, the Burmese Python for ₱50.00 too.

For cat lovers, you can interact with them at Club Meow. Hindi na namen nagawang pumasok baka makalmot si Prince.

They have canteen to rest a while and have some snacks.

What I like about Ark Avilon....

1. Location. It's within Metro Manila so it's very accessible.
2. Cleanliness. It's not pristine clean but the place looks nice and well-maintained.
3. Interaction. I'm happy animals are not for viewing only but you can feed and interact with them.

What I don't like about Ark Avilon...

1. Some animals don't look healthy and happy. Like the small donkey, he can't walk because one of his leg is in pain..
2. The place is small and have few animals. You can finish the tour in less than hour.

You can avail the discounted price tickets here.

Some people complaining the entrance fee is expensive but I don't mind if it's for the well-being of the animals. When we went there, we are the only people who visited the place until we exit. I hope they put the animals in a place where they can be happy and free. I feel pity for them. But overall we enjoyed our tour and my son is happy too.
