They claim to be “the premier Safari Park in the country“. And I will not disagree.
I’ve been to several zoos in other countries, seen quite a lot of animals caged and roaming freely. So when my friends wanted to visit the newest safari in the country, I wasn’t really “super” excited. To cut the story shorter, I expected waaaay less when we visited our very own Cebu Safari, only to be proven wrong.
