Zoobic Safari Experience by Matt

Last June 18 – 19, 2010 my family went to Subic, Zambales to be able witness and experience their very famous Zoobic Safari and Ocean adventure.

And primarily to have some bonding moments since it’s been a year when we had done it during our three day trip to Bohol and Cebu.zoobic safari entrance

Zoo activities range from close encounter with animals, watching Aeta’s thanks giving dance showing some of their skills in hunting and animal presentation.

Serpentarium was also present as well as Croco-loco where lots of crocodiles are just few feet apart from our shoes. Ostrich and pot bellied pig are just roaming around the Savannah. There was also an animal museum where skeleton remains were preserved.

We spent almost half of the day to take part in the Zoo activities. We had some unforgettable moments like feeding the baby tiger. My wife fed the bearcat with banana. I together with my son fed the birds at the palm of our hands. Feed the goat and one hump camel. We also experienced the feel of being inside a cage with tigers outside few inches apart from us.

The whole experience was a combined fun, exciting, suspense and breathtaking. I never thought in my lifetime that I’m going to milk fed a two year old tiger which was much bigger than the whole family combined. During that time I’m holding my breath and pretend to smile even though deep inside I’m very nervous.

During our trip the entrance rates are:

Adult = P449

Children 4 feet below =P349

Souvenir picture = P295 each (this is very expensive)

Feeding the bearcat = 10 pesos each

Feeding the Birds = 10 pesos per cup of feeds

Feeding the Goat/sheep = P25

Dressed chicken for the tiger = P200

Safari Train ride = P50 per pax

    Hi. I am planning to go to Subic this coming Aug 29. Can you recommend a trusted taxi driver who can tour me and my son around SBMA. We are planning to visit zoobic safari and ocean adventure too. Would you know how much would be the transportation budget for a day tour? Thanks.

    So pwede din pala na entrance lang babayaran and not get the package to enjoy the feeding of the animals? Kasi when I inquired, they offered me their packages. We don’t want to stay there overnight naman since we are only from Angeles, Pampanga. Please advise. Thanks!

    Hello Sir! Inquire ko lang if both tickets (for zoobic safari and ocean adventure) mabibili na mismo dun sa counter?
