A popular choice for Manila families, particularly on weekends, Zoobic Safari is a tiger-led animal attraction. Tickets come at a considerable cost, and it’s worth looking online to find deals: a few Zoobic tour packages include transport from Manila. Please note that guests’ heights determine their admission fee. Child discounts apply to kids between 3 and 4 feet (92 and 122 centimeters) tall, while children under 3 feet (92 centimeters) go free.

How to Get There
It takes around three hours to reach Subic Bay Freeport Zone from Manila by express bus, and you’ll need to take a taxi or a tricycle from the bus station to Zoobic Safari. It is easiest to book a tour that includes door-to-door round-trip transfers or make like a local and drive.
When to Get There
Zoobic Safari is open seven days a week from morning until afternoon. The night safari runs every Saturday between October and January and between March and May. Unless this is a major focus for your visit, avoid weekends, when the park is incredibly popular with weekenders from Manila. Don’t even think of visiting around Easter or at Christmas, when the crowds can be intense.
Please Don’t Touch the Tigers
The opportunity to feed, pet, and be photographed with tigers of different ages and sizes is common across Asian animal attractions, but please resist the urge. Adult tigers that are to be petted are typically harshly trained, sedated, or often both, while cubs are separated from their mothers at far too early an age.
