Ramses is the star, but the botanical display is the best part

I stayed here for two nights. The animal displays are pretty old fashioned, definitely not up to world zoo standards. 6-7 year old Ramses, the tiger, has a large enclosure. He is... read more

I stayed here for two nights. The animal displays are pretty old fashioned, definitely not up to world zoo standards. 6-7 year old Ramses, the tiger, has a large enclosure. He is very attentive to visitor, getting up from his resting place or water pool to come pace in front of guests. There are other animals who didn't shy away... More

Big house in real nature of Phillipines with Martin, his beautiful family and lot of animals and kinds of plants, which you can adore every day. Everything was clean and comfortable. Accomodation included very tasty breakfast and dinner. If we come again to Phillipines we want to sure come back!

We saw the signs for the wildlife farm along the National Highway and since we had been driving for a couple of hours thought we would stop in for a short break. What a wonderful surprise! The place is green and cool, the animals well taken care of and clean environment for them. Lots of information available from the owners.... More

We were the first tour of the day and the animals seem to have just waken up but they seemed well fed and clean. Most cages have more than one animal in it but they looked like they co-habit well.

This place is listed as an attraction, but it is also an accommodation. I spent here two nights just because I wanted to have time to interact with the animals. The place is not very big, yet I find that it had plenty to see. It was nice to see quite wide range of species: birds, lizards, fishes and small... More

Have been to the Wildlife Park with some family and friends. Wanted to show them the Wildlife Park. As one of the friends worked in zoos for many years, it was especially interesting for him. It is a little up the hill but offer very much tranquility and a nice place to see some local and imported animals during your... More

This small place between Zambales mountains and South China sea is a unique Wildlife farm run by a family of Swiss zoologist. Around their villa, which serves also as a guesthouse, there is a large number of cages and waterpools and hutches for animals and birds. They have a pretty big collection considering it is a family business. Numbers of... More

For a pretty small operation, the place is impressive with its collection of wildlife animals. Despite their cages, I think being surrounded by nature helps the animals relax, unlike some zoos that are located in the middle of the city and creates a stressful environment for them. I like the idea that you can go around on your own, but... More

OK, it's not the San Diego Wild Animal Park in terms of volume, but in some ways it is better. This is a family run operation, very inexpensive, and they basically just leave you alone to roam around the place. Philippine deer, ostriches, a tiger, snakes, turtles, and a pot bellied pig that thinks he owns the place. I wouldn't... More
