Zoobic Safari, Zambales

December is always a busy month for me not only because its Christmas season but mainly for the reason that I am in-charge with our company Christmas Party and Family Day. The demand of all those activities is very exhausting, but this didn’t halt my passion for travel. So after all the company events, my family and I went to Zoobic Safari.

Upon arrival, we went to the ticket booth to get our tickets. We bought our tickets by the way thru Metrodeal, an online shop with big discounts. Actual entrance fee for adult is P495 and we got it at P250. Kids 3ft and below are free of charge. There was a short briefing before the start of the tour, the do’s and don’ts and what is in store for us for the 2 and a half hour tour:
