Are you up for a fun and challenging experience this weekend? If yes, you might want to try the four (4) wheel drive adventure at Zoocobia located in Clark, Pampanga. It’s a new activity, I’m sure you and your family will enjoy! It is certainly a ride that will tour through the native and towering, country-hill forest in North of Manila. This experience will surely open your eyes to the beauty of nature in incredible high-country landscapes. And this is a day trip in the jungle right through the real driving course adventure!
Gear up and be ready to take off!
Zoocobia is much more than a zoological garden. They endeavor to give their guests an educational and ecological adventure. It is actually my second time to visit the place and never once it failed to amaze me. I am always an animal lover so it is very endearing for me to see a place where variety of animals is being taken care of. Other than that, they also conserve native plant species to provide habitat for wildlife. For me, Zoocobia provides a ‘Green Life’ experience. Amazing!
This second half of the year Zoocobia opens a new activity perfect for all outdoor extravagant. It’s the 4-wheel drive adventure or known as the ‘4 by 4’. What is it? 4WD is an off-road vehicle that all four wheels receive power from the engine simultaneously. Thus, it provides better control than normal road cars on many surfaces because it is easier to maintain traction in an uneven landscape or slippery roads. It is a challenging and a heart-stopping adventure but Zoocobia will make sure that this activity is safe for all ages. In fact during our tour, a 17-year old girl drove one of the vehicles and she is so cool!
Taking on a high-country terrain is a test of all drivers’ capabilities. During the tour, even the professionals find it very challenging to climb in a slope surface specially when it is raining and the wheels get stuck in mud. I and friends experienced it when we tried the 4WD adventure with a pro-driver. It was bumpy and shaky inside the vehicle so we need to grasp a strong grip on the handles but that was also the fun part of the experience – it felt like we were on a roller coaster!
Besides 4WD, they also have mini sport ATVs which is also fun to try. Other attractions also include Zooc ride, the Maze, the Zoocology Museum, the Giant slides, The Barn and Birds of Paradise. Certainly, Zoocobia will make you enjoy nature in a zooper different way!
