A few years ago, my family went to Zoobic Safari in Subic, Zambales to be able to witness and experience their very famous tiger safari. The park is the only tiger safari in the Philippines. For those who planned to go there, the animal theme park is located at Ilanin Forest West, Subic Bay Freeport Zone.
We visited the place primarily to have some bonding moments together and to have an educational tour. It’s been a year since we have done it during our three-day trip to Bohol and Cebu.
Zoobic Safari is an animal theme park that has a land area of 25 hectares. It is home to 200 plus animals. Some of these are not native to the Philippines such as zebra, camels, bears, deers, ostriches, and tigers.
Activities in the park include close encounters with animals, watching Aeta’s thanksgiving dance as they show some of their skills in hunting, and animal talent presentations.
Serpentarium is also available as well as Croco-loco where lots of crocodiles are located just a few feet away from your shoes.
Ostrich and pot-bellied pigs are just roaming around the Savannah. There was also an animal museum where the skeleton remains of the latter are preserved.
We spent almost half of the day taking part in the Zoo activities. We had some unforgettable moments like feeding the baby tiger. My wife fed the bearcat with a 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 feeling of being inside a cage while the tigers are roaming outside of the enclosure and just a few inches away from us. The whole experience was a combination of fun, excitement, 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 my whole family combined. It is really huge.
During that time I am holding my breath and pretend to smile even though deep inside I’m very nervous. The reason is that the baby tiger keeps pulling the feeding bottle from my hand.

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!
