Zoobic Safari, Subic Bay Zambales

A typical zoo is a place where you can see animals placed in a cage. No animal encounters at all. This notion was completely changed by Zoobic Safari in Subic Bay Freeport Zone. This 25 hectares zoo is setup in Ilanin Forest. The look and feel is absolutely different. You may either choose to ride a jeepney tram or have a little breeze walk to see several animals. Much like the Night Safari in Singapore if you'll ask, except that this is a day park.

How to get to Zoobic Safari?

Commuting Visitors:

From Manila, you may take the
Victory Liner bus to Olonggapo City. Since Zoobic Safari opens at 8:00AM and closes at 4:00PM, Club Tourists suggest to take the most earliest trip. Expect a 2-3 1/2 hour ride going to Olonggapo Victory Liner Terminal. Note: The bus rate depends on what terminal you are in, the average cost would be between Php 190 - 220 bucks one way as of July 2009.

From the Victory Liner Terminal, catch a BLUE jeepney to Subic Freeports Main Gate Area. Walk across the main gate and
either take the bus or hire a van or taxi going to the zoo. Note: Vans and Taxis rate here are expensive. Roughly Php 150 - 200 bucks one way as of July 2009.

Visitors with private/rented vehicles:

Club Tourists won't fool you, going to Zoobic Safari is not very commuter friendly. We suggest to bring your own wheels or just rent. You'll just shed out a little amount if you'll compute it compared to paying the bus fares.

Anyways, take the NEW Clark-Subic Highway. This will take 1 1/2 hours from Balintawak to Subic. Just that! No hassles to go to other places like the Ocean Adventure and beaches in the vicinity.

Visitors who wants to try the Ferry:
There are ferry who leaves CCP Terminal in Manila Bay to Orion. Roughly 1 1/2 hours going there. In Orion, take bus going to Olonggapo City.

What to do in Zoobic Safari:

You need a whole day to experience the whole of safari. There are lots of activities to do. So, be prepared


As the Zoobic Safari says, "The Adventure Starts Here!". This is the main entrance of the park. As you enter, live tigers are already in display in their cages. There are also scheduled programs for the young and young-at-heart. Get a chance to have your picture taken just beside a tiger or a cub. A little bit of a starter for you.


One of the best experience in Zoobic Safari! Buy a live chicken worth Php 200 bucks and have it tied in the jeepney tram. As you passed by some tigers, don't get shocked or surprised as this carnivores jump over the top or at the side of the tramp and munch the chicken like there's no tomorrow. MUST TRY!


Petting zone and animal observation area along a mini forest. Farm and exotic animals are in sight.


Rent a golf car or drive your own and get up close and personal with ostriches, wild boars, sheeps and goats


This is a place (from the suffix -arium) of different types of snakes and reptiles (from the prefix serpent). Enough of the English class. Have your picture taken while a big snake are lingering all over your neck. Whoooo!


This is more like a crocodile farm for those who tried it in Davao. Chance to feed this hungry crocs by buying some meat worth Php 100 and experience the reptiles strengths as they jump over for the food and munch it all at the same time. Curious? Try it!


Mouse, hamster, guinea pig, The Chipmunks or what have you. They are all here.
(kidding on The Chipmunks, just squirrels ok?)


Real aeta in the house yo! Watch their old school way of dancing and playing the instruments


Tired of the live animals? Proceed to this museum to check out some preserved one.

You can buy animal stuff toys, tshirts and other memorabilia
