It’s been so long since we went to a zoo, last time was at Singapore Zoo back in 2019. When I saw a celebrity posted about this newly opened Clark Safari on Instagram, I told Kyle we should pay a visit. They had their soft opening last October 2021. Clark Safari and Adventure Park is located at. 67 Jose Abad Santos Ave, Clark Freeport, Mabalacat, Pampanga. They are open daily, from Monday to Sunday, 8AM to 5PM with cut off of 4PM.
Entrance fees are posted below. You may walk in or book an online reservation via this link.
- Vaccination card for all visitors (this will be asked upon entering Clark and the safari)
- For adults and kids who are not vaccinated, they must present a negative antigen or RT PCR test results
- Wear mask at all times (you can quickly remove it when taking photos or eating)
- Social Distancing
- Schedule your visit early to avoid the crowd. We went on a Thursday, arrived at 7:30AM and we had the safari all to ourselves. Less contact and safer
- Wear comfortable clothes because you’ll do a lot of walking. We wore caps to avoid the sun to hit our face directly
- Bring water, you may also buy drinks inside the safari
Where to eat?
They have food trucks outside, snacks area, and a restaurant as well. When we arrived, food trucks were still closed, I think they open during lunch time
Upon entering the place, you will see these decorations to feel the safari vibe
Just show your ticket to the personnel at the gate and you’re good to go!
Here’s the Safari directory
First stop is the Lagoon where you can walk around, take photos of the animal sculpture like elephants and giraffes
After the Lagoon, you’ll see the Reptile Kingdom
Next to that is the petting area. You can feed the rabbits and goats for free
Of course, the brown bears! Unfortunately, the brown bears were sleeping when we were there. This photo was borrowed from Clark Safari’s Instagram page.
They have a description and conservation status per animal which is a good learning session for the kids, and adults too.
Beside the Brown Bears are the Baboons. We loved watching the Baboons, they like running and chasing each other
You’ll also see ponies, Taal rescue horses, cows, and zebras in one area.
Big and small cats are also a must see! Make sure to bring a DSLR camera to zoom in and take better photos. Unfortunately my phone didn’t do much justice to their beauty because they’re far. Second and third photo were borrowed from Clark Safari’s Instagram page.
These black wolves are not joking, they look so scary when they look at you in the eyes
Sadly, we weren’t able too see the white tiger cub, they said they’re still being vaccinated and will be available to hold closely by Chinese New Year. Just look how cute it is!
Lastly, photo op area with some animals. There’s a PHP50 fee per photo per person with them.
This Albino Burmese Python is named Sharon. She weighs 50 kilograms, almost same as my weight! So, yes, she’s heavy. Kyle got a bit scared so he took my photo instead.
These beautiful birds are gentle and playful. Safe to take photos with them!
The kids will surely enjoy taking photos with these animal sculptures, they can play around it too.
You may watch the mini vlog of our safari day here – Clark Safari Reels. I must say that it’s a good educational trip for your family, and even with your friends. We hope to see more healthy animals since the place is big and there’s a lot of potential. You should definitely come and visit!
