Subic, Philippines- Oct. 4, 2010
During our vacation in the Philippines, few days before we left, we went to Zoobic Safari in Subic Zambales, Oct 4, 2010. It was a 3 hour drive from Quezon City or maybe 4 or 5 hours if you get stuck in the traffic ;-). Zoobic is located in Subic Bay Freeport Zone formerly known as the US Naval Base, Subic Bay. Subic Base was the largest U.S. Navy installation in the Pacific and was the largest overseas military installation of the United States Armed Forces after Clark Air Base in Angeles City was closed in 1991. It took us 20 minutes to get to this location just from the main gate of the Subic base.
The tram that takes you to the Tiger Safari, you have the option to ride this tram and pay I think 50 pesos per person (~$1) or just drive your own vehicle. Well, since it was too hot that day we opted to stay in our van hehehe and followed the tram
This is the jeepney that we rode and we drove around the Tiger Safari and saw Siberian Tiger, that day there was only one tiger showed up since all were in the cage maybe due to the hot weather or maybe they were full already hehehe
This is the sleeping tiger inside the cage, we went to their cages...that's why not a lot of tigers showed up they're all sleeping hehehe...I took this photo in between the rails of the cage
Carabaos are associated with farmers, being the farm animal helper to sow and plow rice and vegetables but albino carabaos can't do this, they can't stand the heat of the sun (lucky you albino! just stay in the zoo hehehe)
