What to Expect at Cebu Safari

Did you know this place is also the biggest zoological park in the Philippines? That’s quite a record. 

The brainchild of hippophile and orchid collector Michel Lhuillier, who is also referred to as “Senyorito,” the park serves as a sanctuary for more than a thousand animals from 120 different species, as well as a wide range of plants. 

Fauna

Cebu Safari and Adventure Park is divided into various sections, such as Michel’s Garden, Gardens of the World, and the zoo.

For your experience with the fauna, the park has various species of birds, mammals, and reptiles. It also presents a bird show as well as gives visitors the chance to feed some of the animals, such as the giraffes and the white and orange Bengal tigers.
