OMG.... Just don't even be tempted to go to this place. It is run down, dirty, and very uninteresting. Very few animals. The lions and tigers are kept in very small inhumane dark cages where you can't even get good pictures through the small mesh. Wild Pigs are running loose all over. Nothing good about this place.

The place is far from the main gate. No worries if you don't have a car. You may rent a cab along the gate for an affordable price. The driver will wait until you are done with your ZS tour.

I found the park in need of a total renovation. It is old and dated. The walk through area was not clean. This was the same for the arena area where a live show was performed. The whole experience was very disappointing.

Feeding of tigers while inside the caged jeepney is supposed to be the highlight of this safari, but we were there inside the tiger's sanctuary for just like 10 minutes, and after that, we're out. Also, aside from the entrance fee, we gotta shell out some extra P400+ for the raw chicken pieces or else the tigers won't approach us... More

Exciting place to visit especially with children, though I suggest to put some more animals or activities because their place is so big. Best part is the tram ride to very close encounter with the tigers.

Dirty, pets not really nourished, overall wasted of time and money. Just not a place worth the money.

Zoo's in the Philippines are very interactive and fun to see the different animals. The "safari" part of this zoo is a big draw but wasn't especially memorable. Long lines for a short zip through lions and tigers resting beneath trees. The bird cages are fun however and I got to pet the camel!

We really enjoyed this place especially our 2 year old. Try taking a photo with the tiger and owl. Amazing to see camels here and zebras. Pigs, sheeps and other farm animals are freely roaming around. Though the big cats look healthy, we hope that they can move freely too in the field. Food there is good though a bit... More

A very dissapointing experience, they better skip the word Safari out of it. They cage lions and tigers in small cages up to 4 animals. The trainride is okay and brings you around the old ammuniations storage conplex. Somethings are nice most of it is just not worth it or makes me angry. This "zoo" is below standard. The Tiger...
