Visiting zoo is not really my thing when I was still single but when I had my only son things change. Now, I’m enjoying visiting different zoos in the Philippines. Zoomanity Group is the leading company in theme park industry from Northern to Southern Philippines. It is their goal to give the best ever tourist destination and nature educational experiences.
As of now they have five theme parks that you can visit such as Zoobic Safari, Residence Inn, Paradizoo, Zoocobia Fun Zoo and Zoocolate Thrills. Among these five zoos, we’ve already visited three zoos. I could say that each zoo offers unique experience and excitement. It gives knowledge and happiness regardless of visitors age.
The first zoo that we have visited is Paradizoo, we live in Southern Luzon so visiting this zoo is not difficult. Paradizoo Farm is located in Mendez, Cavite where you can see farm animals roaming free. Yes, some animals are roaming free so at first I was really scared. It is also a garden full of flowers and vegetables where you can select, pick and buy your own vegetables and flowers. The place is not that big so you can include this in your itinerary if ever you visit Tagaytay.
The second zoo that we have visited is Residence Inn which is located in Tagaytay City. The zoo has moderate number of animal collections that you can see. You can have have photo op with some animals too, but of course there's an extra fee for that. We enjoyed the animal feeding and bird feeding activity. Not only that, there’s also animal show so make sure you check the schedules so you won't miss it. If you are brave enough, try the Zipline.
The third zoo that we have visited is Zoobic Safari. Among the zoos, I think this is the biggest, we took tram to visit the different attractions. Our favorite experience is the Tiger and Lion Safari. It was scary but fun at the same time. We also experienced goat bottle feeding and crocodile feeding. After our tour, we took advantage the animal show too.
The Zoocobia Fun Zoo and Zoocolate Thrills are still in my bucket list and hopefully we can visit this soon. I love to experience the gravity car because I was not able to try this when we went to Sentosa Resort in Singapore. And if ever we will go back again in Bohol, I will include Zoocolate Thrills in my itinerary. I’m pretty sure that my son would enjoy the trip.
So if you are looking for educational activities, try visiting these zoos because I’m pretty sure that not only kids will enjoy the trip.
