LITERALLY WALK ON THE WILD SIDE AT THE ZOOBIC NIGHT SAFARI

Author: Carlo Dinglasan
Credits to: www.wheninmanila.com

It was a hot 35ºC summer day; the sun was at its peak and angrily kissing my skin; the car aircon was on max but wasn’t really doing nothing; and the Makati traffic was taunting me; but my mind never faltered for I knew what I’d be seeing by the end of the day: Tigers!

zoobicsafari

And sure enough, 4 hours and 138 kilometres later, we finally arrived at the Subic Safari, excited to see what The Zoomanity Group had in store for us.

zoobicsafarinight3

Safety first and an orientation with the guest is always in order.
We arrived just as the sun was going down. Before the actual Subic tour, we were first oriented about the night’s itinerary and reminded to always follow the instructions. After all, we were going to deal with wild animals and getting lost there at night wouldn’t be a pleasant experience for anyone… unless you are Bear Grylls. Always follow your group and your guide.
 zoobicsafarinight4
Souvenirs that can get the attention of the inner kid in you.
During the orientation, I roamed around a bit to get a better idea about the Subic Safari and what we might be doing that night. I then stumbled upon the souvenir shop. I was actually expecting very expensive plush toys and souvenirs but was surprised that they were fairly-priced and affordable. So, I took a mental note to go back and get one later if something piqued my interest.
zoobicsafarinight5
Just beside the main hall was a pen where you can have your picture taken for a fee while holding and feeding a tiger cub. After being mesmerized by the playful cub, it reminded me that they are somewhat still like domesticated cats in the way that they act and play… except, this is just a 3-month-old cub. Still, it was already bigger than your regular house cat, so it was clear that it will still grow up to be a 400-pound predator at some point.
zoobicsafarinight26
Once the orientation was finished, we were divided into groups. Our first stop was the Bird Walk.
zoobicsafarinight7
What? No birds? As much as I wanted to take photos of those beautiful birds, I couldn’t because they were too far away and it was too dark for my camera to handle. So, here are some Oriental small-clawed otters instead, which can be found in the Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, China, Indonesia, Laos, Bangladesh, Burma and India. Not as colorful but downright cute – that’s for sure!
zoobicsafarinight8
A cool and chillin’ camel.
It was fun and interesting to see so many animals not usually seen at a local zoo at the Subic safari. Granted, the last time I went to a zoo was more than 20 years ago, but there were no camels then. It was cool that the camel was just chill and allowed us to pet him/her and also was not bothered by the photo opportunity, either.
zoobicsafarinight9
After a quick tour of the Bird Walk and the mini-zoo, we were ushered towards the Serpentarium which is one of the many attractions that can be found at this Subic safari.
zoobicsafarinight210
Inside the Sepentarium was a collection of snakes from pythons and constrictors to poisonous cobras. You could also find some lizards, iguanas and some turtles, too.

2 WHITE LION CUBS BORN AT SUBIC ZOO

SUBIC FREEPORT ZONE, Philippines—Zoobic Safari welcomes one of the rarest animal species in the world, the first white lion cubs born in the Philippines.
With an estimated total population of only 300 all over the world,  two female born white lion cubs was added to this little number here in our country last May 18. The cubs were from the pair of white lions that were donated to Zoobic Safari by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and ruler of Dubai.

White lions are extremely rare and have not been seen in the wild in more than 15 years. They are not albino; their white coloration is the result of a recessive gene known as a color inhibitor specific to their native region.
In line with Zoobic Safari’s conservation and animal care program, the two white lions will be exhibited at the zoo to educate further its guests regarding the importance of conservation as a key to survival of the many species.
Zoobic Safari is a 25 hectare land that showcases different kinds of animals such as reptiles, birds, and mammals. Located inside Subic Freeport Zone, Zoobic Safari is just one of the many exciting theme parks of Zoomanity Group which includes: Zoocobia Fun Zoo in Clark Pampanga, Residence Inn Tagaytay, Paradizoo in Mendez, Cavite, Z-planet inside Star City, and Zoocolate Thrills in Loboc Bohol.

4 X 4 ZOOPER ADVENTURE RIDE AT ZOOCOBIA CLARK PAMPANGA

Author: John Mark Calderon

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!
4x4_1
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!
4x4_2
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!
