Summer is approaching and I ought to write our Zoobic adventure last 2009. To remind readers, this blog site sprouted last August of 2010 out of boredom. Let’s back track…
We love Subic, its beaches, duty free shopping stores, foreign-theme restaurants, and booming hotel industry and it’s just a few hours away from Manila. My late grand grandfather hails from Zambales and an uncle of mine used to hold a job in the U.S. Naval base in Olongapo. Subic for us when we were kids is a common place to visit but at that time theme-parks are not yet developed, either the SCTEX [Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway] isn’t on the blueprint yet.
Subic management still maintain cleanliness, peace and order of the community. When in Subic, never forget to add in your itinerary the Zoobic Safari and Ocean Adventure trips. Subic family travels ain’t complete without raging the summer heat and adventures of both worlds.
Zoobic Safari dubbed itself as the only tiger safari in the Philippines on a 25-hectare land. Exotic and wild animals on their natural habitat, it’s the closest jungle safari around. Although referred as wild animals, they are quiet familiar and very much acquainted with human interaction.The amusement park give them the freedom to roam and frolicked in the grasslands.
Area for ticketing, reminders from tour guides, photo shoots, long waits, while the summer heat is on. You may need a lot drinking water and Gatorade, tremendous heat is exhausting and very stressful esp. for your kids.

Albino python snake
If my memory is correct, he is Johnny.
This guy is almost famous, saw some of his television guestings.
Drop-off point for the Tiger Safari Ride
We ride on a tiger-look jeepney to visit the semi-natural habitat of tigers.
Close encounter with a 400 lbs, tigers eating a whole fresh chicken treats.
When they hop at the roof-top of the jeep, you may think they can turn upside down the vehicle, yes they are a little mean but very adorable! 🙂
What’s more adorable is the manong [guy] who holds the chicken treat, he was just a tip away! These guys amazingly hand-feeds their favorite baby pets!
Even if they pay me in dollars, I won’t accept the job. Thanks but no thanks! hahaha! I’m so coward. Di bale na lang.
Fellow tigers are breed and nurtured here.
