Visited Zoocobia

rsz_1mbp_pinkZoocobia, run and managed by Zoomanity Group, has always been a family destination we have always planned to visit. Just by the name itself, we knew that we will be up for fun time and a day of adventure with animals. But we definitely got more than a visit to the zoo. For one, the zoo boasts of highly interactive animals, and the zoo offered the most natural protected home for them. Read up as I share how educational and fun our family experience was. Travel did not disappoint because we took SCTEX on our way to Zoocobia. No heavy traffic in sight, and since we left early, all kids slept almost all throughout travel time.

The first thing that greets you when you get into Zoocobia are the picture boards. Right from the start of the trip, the kids were all game posing around the picture boards and going goofy around them. A Zoocobia tour guide meet all visitors at this area, your tour guide is key to your educational and fun experience within Zoocobia. Glad to have been assigned one that did not rush around the place but took the time to explain everything in sight and answered all my curious kids’ questions.

20151129_09032420151129_090252The Menagerie is a unique collection of stuffed real animals, yep, real animals stuffed for kids to explore, all preserved by Zoocobia taxidermists. It was also a highly educational spot, because all displays come with the animals’ common name, scientific name and their distinct characteristics and habitat. The stuffed real animals were big hits with the kids for photo ops, there were bears, crocodiles, Siberian tiger, greater kudu, Kalahari goat, American leopard, pot bellied pig, to mention a few.

My kids did not realize all the hours we spent at Zoocobia, because of activities like My Art Work station, where kids can work with paper, wood and crayon to create art masterpieces with their own hands. Birds of Paradise will have you go into a huge bird cage with almost 50 birds you can feed. These birds are not afraid to go close as long as you have food on any of your body part! Kids fed them while on the ground or perched on their hands. The birds fly to wherever you put feeds on! Next was a long list of animals to feed: parrots, ostrich, bearcat and monkeys.

My youngest boy’s favourite was the Zooc, it is a gravity car that is patterned after the luge from Sentosa resort in Singapore. We drove it to a 400-meter track. All boys were all smiles, if it wasn’t for the climb up, we would have done it again and again. Of course, we also took the time to go through the garden maze and to take on the gigantic slides. Mommies do not need to worry because kids land on a big stack of hay, with a park attendant waiting at the bottom of the slide, too, to catch the kids.

The kids also tried the zipline and riding the horses. The camels are also up for a ride, but be ready to endure the camel’s natural scent (which reportedly does not go away even with the animals’ daily bath).

Thanking God for this family experience. Parents who want to have an educational trip can surely enjoy Zoocobia. It was also encouraging to highlight to kids God’s creation story, as you go around the park, highlighting how we can take care of the animals God has created while enjoying the beauty of nature around us.

Joined Asia Pacific Leaders’ Forum – Blogging 101 at Paradizoo and Residence Inn

rsz_1mbp_pinkWith more and more bloggers added to the industry everyday, it is relevant to keep up with what the readers need while staying true to your writing niche. With Zoomanity Group holding this year’s Asia Pacific Leaders’ Forum Blogging 101, bloggers like myself are fully supported and provided seamless and continuous training on how to excel and be responsible as we write.

asiapacific

In the coming weeks, feel free to bookmark this page or follow this page as I write about my takeaways from the bloggers’ forum. The day started with a tour of Paradizoo. And with an overnight accommodation at Zoobic Safari plus tickets (from my previous Zoocobia experience) I can use at Paradizoo, I will certainly come back with my family and kids in tow and you will certainly read about that experience on my upcoming posts. So off we went hopping from every inch and corner of Paradizoo. Among the highlights are opportunities to have visitors feed the animals, interact with them at a safe distance, all while reading all the relevant trivia posted around the fenced areas.

animals-birds

animals-blackducks

animals-camel

There were two spots where we saw Arabian camels. One was actually up for riding and the other one was caged and can be fed with greens.

animals-fiveleggedcow

animals-horses

animals-ostrich

animals-rabbits

And then there was the five-legged cow, countless horses and ostriches. It is hard to notice the spacious, grassy lawns around the animals. Kids will certainly have a good time running around the area, and will never run out of games to play while they walk around to see the animals. The rabbit cages look like a mini rabbit village, complete with mini rabbit houses and play area. Kids will surely love feeding the rabbits, just be ready for the smell of the animals, as they are placed right next to each other and can create pungent animal smell for kids.

animals-pigs

animals-python1

animals-python2

animals-python3

animals-tiger

After the forum, it was time to go to Residence Inn Tagaytay. The albino Burmese python looks intimidating and super scary but was cold, quiet and non responsive, both in the cage and even while touched and held for photos. Was not brave enough to touch and pet the tiger, was woken up in between pictures and fed milk as visitors go into the fence for photos.

Honey is made available for anyone who wants to buy plus a butterfly garden full of it, that you will not know which one to take picture of. They are so many, the butterflies do not mind and do not get bothered as they land on plants, flowers and even on visitors!

vegetable garden

A farm is not a farm without the plants and the gardens. The vegetable garden is quite a view and it comes with good news as it offers fresh, organic vegetables that visitors can buy and take home.

bloggerfriendsIt was definitely a day empowering. The bloggers forum empowering us to write, network and develop accountability and responsibility, the tour refreshing our eyes with beautiful, picturesque nature view and the people we have added as valuable friends.

Zoocobia Visited, New Zooperb Rides Tried

Our day started with the group trooping to Clark Pampanga, our destination: Zoocobia. Mommies will surely appreciate a zoo that is no longer just offering animals to view. Zoocobia is more than just a zoo with caged animals, in fact, it is a zoo like no other. Have you ever thought that a 4×4 ride will be part of what a zoo can offer? Well, Zoocobia makes it possible.

clarkzilla
Clarkzilla 4×4 ride allows you to get on a 4×4 4-wheel-engine jeep ride along forest trail. Kids will surely love this new take on an adventure ride. The ride is not as dangerous as you would have it on sandy trail, which makes the ride perfect for conversation with kids. See where the trail starts with picture above.
Camels may have been a common picture from deserts, but guess what? It is a staple for Zoocobia. You see camels led by costumed guides and it is not just for viewing, it is up for a ride. Kids may never get to ride a camel anywhere else, other than in Zoocobia. These gentle giants will surely complete your Dubai Safari feel.

What I appreciate about Zoocobia is kids-appropriate attractions such as the Zoocology Museum. Animal bone and skeleton displays can complete any kid’s zoo experience.
