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 only tiger safari in the Philippines. For those who planned to go there, the animal theme park its located at Ilanin Forest West, Subic Bay Freeport Zone.
Zoobic Safari activities range from close encounters with animals, watching Aeta’s thanksgiving 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 feeling 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 my whole family combined. It is really huge.
During that time I’m 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.
