Adventure Awaits at Cebu Safari and Adventure Park

The Cebu Safari and Adventure Park is now open in Carmen Cebu! Let me share to you my thoughts and experience during our visit there just this month.

First off, this new safari park is the first of its kind in Cebu. It is owned by the Lhuilliers, so don't be surprised to see an Mlhullier branch inside. As of the time of this writing, Cebu Safari is still on its soft opening stage since their collection of animals is still not complete. Despite this, a lot of locals and tourists still come to check out the place including us.

There are hundreds of animals in Cebu Safari and a lot of them i'm sure you're also not familiar of. For those of you who's never been to a safari but have been to a zoo, you'll really see the difference between the two here.

The safari is massive and the animals have bigger spaces to roam around. They look less stressful as their designated areas are made to fit the kind of environment they should be in. There are some animals you can just touch while others like the white tiger, cheeta and orangutans you can just see from a far for obvious reasons.

I would like to note that some animals are only available in some time so you may want to go there early or stay there a little bit longer.

You will be given a map during the orientation upon entering the safari park. It will guide you inside because you'll be the one to decide where you want to go first and where to go next. You can ride the safari vehicle or hike your way to the different spots. We decided to hike and go around the safari without riding a vehicle. The animals aren't very far from each other, but I wished we took advantage of the vehicles because that was one tiring day. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes and clothes when going there.

The staff are really helpful and they give suggestions on where to go next. They also greet the guests happily and gives you some details on the animals. Thumbs up to how they actually trained their staff to be very accommodating and friendly.

The policies are also simple, and you'll be informed by the staff if you're allowed to feed the animals in the specific spots. However, you need to pay for the food you will be feeding to the animals.

Cebu Safari also boasts of its huge flower garden.


Here's my overall verdict, 4 stars to Cebu Safari and Adventure Park. The only downside about this safari is that you can't bring in foods and drinks from outside so that's -1 point. You have to agree on me on this that P800/head is not very affordable, not that i'm saying that it's not worth the price, but that entrance fee is big plus the food inside is also quite pricey. That's the only concern, but really, the Safari Park is a great place to see and that tour was one different way to spend the weekend.

Well, I highly recommend this place to parents who would like to take their kid/s to see different animals. They will really like it here, but for me, I could pass.

Currently, the safari park is open from Wednesdays to Sundays from 8AM to 5PM but selling of tickets is only up to 2PM. Entrance fee is P800/head including one set lunch meal. However, once they have their Grand opening, lunch will no longer be part of the package.
