March 2: Zoobic Safari
Lions, tigers and bears, oh my! Well, tigers more than anything else – the Zoobic Safari is the best place in the country to see tigers up close and personal. Hop on over and pay them a visit!
Why go there: The standout feature of Zoobic Safari is a ride on a special jeep which takes you through a man-made savannah where tigers come close enough to sniff you out. Luckily, the jeep’s very secure and the handlers seem to know what they’re doing.
Family-friendly factor: There’s lots for the whole family here – special 3D movies, train rides, zip-line rigs, animal shows, cultural dances and lots and lots of magnificent and fascinating animals from all over the world.
May cost you: P500-P700, depending on the activities you select.
Fun factoid: They’ve brought back their Night Safari for a limited time, so you can now visit the tigers in the evening. In your safe and secure jeep accompanied by a guide and handler, of course.
