Cebu Safari and Adventure Park

From the sleeping town of Carmen Cebu, comes the biggest and premier Safari Park in the country. Aligning with international standards, Cebu Safari and Adventure Park offers a sanctuary for flora and fauna, serving as a refuge for guests who wanted to reconnect with nature. Cebu Safari has always been the the talk of the town among Cebuanos and tourists. This is yet to be another destination that would attract tourists, and will definitely promote local tourism. It’s a 100-hectare land owned and developed by pawnshop tycoon Michel Lhuiller.


The Place

The Safari is divided into major stops, starting off from the base camp. All visitors will be taken by van to be dropped off to where you want to start exploring. Top 3 favorites on these stops are Michel’s Garden, which houses a 40-year collection of orchids. Another favorite Tiger turf where the tigers, and deers were housed, and lastly the Aviary dome where you got the chance the feed the birds!

    I vaguely remember stepping inside a zoo when I was like in grade school. Then it never happened again. Also, I’m not a fan of caged animals of sorts. Yet, this place makes me want to fly over to Cebu and see it for myself.

    I have taken the kids to the zoo before. We went to Avilon Zoo in Rizal. The kids loved it. We also went to a minizoo last summer. Maybe when we go to Cebu again and the zoo is fully operational already and has lots of animals, we will bring the kids there. The price is quite pricey, though.

      I agree to the pricey part. Not the usual zoo fee, although I would say, I got the value of my money on this visit. 🙂

    Wow, it really is huge! And I love it! The orchids part of the zoo is beautiful, I have my own, a rather poor collection of orchids at home. So, I would love to see these. And I also love the fact that you can actually feed the animals and thus have a closer contact with them. In most of the zoos, you are not allowed to feed animals.

      They have fruits, meat on site for feeding with a small price to pay. (I think we paid 20-50 php for the fruit to feed the birds).

    Sounds a great place to have an adventure and sight seeing. What caught my eye is the tiger! Though we feel amazed by the animals, a part of me worries about their welfare. I always think about their lifestyle in zoos especially if they are taken care of. Nevertheless, I wish to visit someday!

      The animals looked like they were well taken cared of, not skinny and they roam at a bigger area than the usual. 🙂
