Zoobic Safari Adventure

Wildlife in the Philippines is nothing compared to that in Africa but we are still fortunate to get an up close and personal encounter with some of the world’s wildest animals in Zoobic Safari on April 8, 2012.

By Bus:

From Metro Manila, find the nearest bus station with buses going to Olongapo terminal. The most common and trusted bus line located in Pasay, Caloocan, Sampaloc and Cubao, is the Victory Liner. It has an hourly service from 4 AM to 6 PM. Olongapo terminal is located at the APO monument. Take yellow jeep up to SMBA main gate. Walk to the taxi stand and take a taxi inside SMBA. The fare to Zoobic is PHP 400 / one way.

By Car:

Take the North Luzon Expressway and exit in San Fernando. Follow the signs going to Olongapo. Take the Tipo-Subic expressway to go to Subic Bay Freeport Zone. If you don’t have your own car, it would be more convenient to rent a car especially when you have kids. Just like what we did, the driver picked us up from our house, waited for us to finish the whole safari tour in Zoobic, and brought us back home safely.
