Trip to Zoobic Park (Subic, Olongapo)

June 6, 2005

Our trip going to Subic was fine, although it was raining most of the time. We checked in at one of the inns located along the beach in Subic bay area. Unfortunately, I can't remember the name of the inn. It was silly of me that I wasn't able to document these vital part of the trip. I hardly can no longe trace back the entire trip except for some few pictures (as usual). How I wish I can add some videos too, but I can't seem to upload them yet. I still am figuring out how the videocam would work in playing it through my pc, and hopefully could just save them for videostreaming. Gosh...soooo complicated to do since it's a largedata file. :(


We decided to do some trip to Zoobic Safari, which I can say is one great attraction that can be found at Subic Bay Freeport's Forest Adventure Park embracing a 25 hectare land. It features a wide range of habitats present in the forest due to the terrain, presence of streams and fringing grasslands. These represent the major habitats for varied exotic animals featured in Zoobic Safari Forest Adventure Park.

The Attractions that we saw:

The Petting Zoo - the setting is in a tropical jungle where in you can pet some animals like where you can have a live interaction with deers, ostrich, albino carabao, bear, monkey, eagle, miniature horse, ducks and a lot more. I was able to pet a sheep. Of all of the animals there, it was the sheep that I was attracted to because of its meekness I guess :) (Sorry, no photo).

Serpentarium - A close view of snakes, lizards, iguanas, turtles and a lot more cold blooded animals like this below :0


Tiger Safari Adventure - they call this a once in a lifetime adventure! For me, this is the most thrilling experience I had including the Close Encounter with the Bengal Tigers (2 ft. away)! It was fun!


What will you do if you are in that jeepney being swarmed by Bengal tigers?? Don't worry, I ws not in there. That was just an empty vehicle for them to get curious and familiar with :)

By the way, this is a real tiger cub having his milk. He loves his "dede". It was a bit uncomfortable for me sitting in there, but since he was busy with his milk, he was not concentrated on placing his big paws on me :) But gosh, look at the paws...he is holding on tight to his bottle. They are really BIG :0
