“Zoobic Safari Adventures!” by Jonin Marie Gargoles


What’s your favorite adventure during your childhood years? My favorites part are Jungle, Safari & Ocean Adventures in Subic Bay.  I got to enjoyed my childhood years by traveling around Philippines. I’m a proud Filipina enjoying the beautiful scenery of different natural resources here in the Philippines. I’ll tell you Subic Bay  is one of the most cleanest places here in the Philippines.  I love traveling to Subic because we came to across the highway surrounded by the Virgin Forest.  You’re not allowed to kill any animals you came across the highway most especially the endangered species.

Hi! Everyone I’m back! I’m sorry I’ve been busy lately in school because I’m a graduating student of Colegio San Agustin- Bacolod taking up Bachelor of Science in Tourism Management.

Okay I’ll tell you my great adventures in SUBIC BAY!!!!  I was 11 years old during that time & I think I’m in my fifth grade. I’m a Math Wizard Kid competing different Mathematics Contest like Mathematics Trainers Guild National competing for next level of International Level. I do Love Math because of it I was given the opportunities to travel different places around  Philippines.

Zoobic Safari is part of Residence Inn chain of zoo and resort business. It’s a 25 hectare park that offers a great experience for you and your family. It features a wide range of habitats present in the forest due to the terrain, presence of streams and grasslands.



Treat your family to a whole new excitement as you drive around the habitat of full-sized Siberian tigers. You’ll ride around a secure vehicle with safari guides while you observe these animals on their natural environment. You can also see them get fed at close proximity. It’s definitely an experience you wouldn’t want to miss!

Honestly speaking I’m screaming every time the Tiger would come near to us.  It was such a great adventure and experience.



Here you will find a pit of over 200 crocodiles. Walk over the steel grated walkway with the snapping monster directly below you. Here you can purchase a quarter chicken, dangle it on a fishing pole for the Crocs to snap away from your line. Then walk down to the Crocodile Café where you can view the quick-snappers from a water-level glass observation area while you snack on some goodies.

I love watching the giant crocodiles underneath my feet. It’s like I’m so near to them but the crocodiles can’t eat me. So yeah!  It was fun!


Drive your car into an animal sanctuary of farm and exotic animals such as wild boars, potbelly pigs and guinea fowls. Many wild ostriches roam free here and many times try to run alongside your vehicle. Some of these guys may attempt to get a closer look at you and your vehicle, even to the point of a peck or two at your vehicle window.

If you are a fan of the rodent kingdom, or just wonder how many different species were found in the world of rodents, then this is the place for you. You will find everything from tiny guinea pigs, porcupines to very large Palawan Rats. There’s even a grooming station where you can watch the rodents get their hair done.

Get a close-up view of reptiles small and large. See snakes from around the world from the simple king snake to some huge pythons and boa constrictors. Also included here are lizards, iguanas, monitor lizards, turtles, and other cold-blooded creatures are Available


You can see a realistic Aeta village featuring their homes and cooking areas. These native Filipino people will also treat you to a very entertaining tribal show including the butterfly and war dance. Marvel at the amazing athletic gymnastic ability of these dancers as they perform the monkey dance and catapult up a tree.


Ever wondered how it feels like to hold a baby tiger in your arms and feed it? How about hold an iguana or maybe a python? Zoobic Safari offers these opportunities to touch and hold these trained animals and don’t forget to take photos while your at it!

I’m actually shaking when the baby tiger sat already on my lap but the guide had told us not to panic but to stay still.  At first you’ll get scared but in the end you will enjoy touching the baby tiger.  As I could remember  I want to bring home the baby tiger. Haha! It’s so cute and fluffy!


A rare collection of real stuffed animals and skeletons that are both interesting and educational. Definitely an educational trip made exciting!
