• Travel | Reconsider Manila Zoo (Adriatico Street, Malate, Manila, PH) ♥

9:53 PM

Last day, our family was invited to celebrate Keisha, Jessie and Jannah's birthday at Manila Zoological and Botanical Garden at Adriatico St., Malate, Manila. I know Manila Zoo is not the newest zoo in town, not even considered as posh. I've been there so many times before and actually I already lost count but my son Luiz Aldren haven't seen Manila Zoo yet so we didn't decline the invitation. 

Upon entering the gate you will see a life-sized stone replica of an elephant. (image below)


When you enter the premise, there is a gate going to the Kinder Zoo at the left side but we didn't go to that area because it will require you to pay another fee. But I think Kinder Zoo has many things to offer. They have butterfly sanctuary, horse back riding, zip line, and other activities which is not available at the other side of the zoo. Kids and kids-at-heart will also have a chance to interact with different animals at Kinder Zoo, such as crocodile, exotic birds and monkeys.


Manila Zoological and Botanical Garden is a 5.5-hectare zoo in Manila and was opened in July 1959. It's popular resident is Mali, an elephant and serves as the most preferred educational site when I was in grade school. 



In 2007, Manila Zoo has 832 animals and 100 species from mammals, to reptiles, to fishes and birds.

Inside the Zoo you can also have picnic at the cottages and try boating.


You may also get a chance to have some picture riding at a horse or holding some colorful birds.
