Kinder Zoo Adventure Jungle Fun with Family! :)
I can still remember the last time we went to Manila Zoo, I was in 6th Grade and my cousins are so small back then (now they look down on me). So, the reason we “suddenly” went to Manila Zoo is because I got a discount voucher that helped me save 50% on the fees. (You know I am a Mom so, as much as possible I want to get things that will help me stay on my budget and I got my voucher in Groupon, but there are other amazing discount voucher sites that you can check out). The voucher that I bought is an entrance to the Kinder Zoo Adventure Jungle, found inside the Manila Zoo Compound and it is for 6pax, it includes 12 activities for only P480! Now, that is what I call a deal! Imagine, the Entrance Fee for the Kinder Zoo is different with the Entrance Fee that you pay before entering Manila Zoo ( I think its P40 each for Manila Zoo entrance and P100 each for the Kinder Zoo entrance). I already saved 120 with my voucher just for the entrance fee! And as far as I know, that P100 fee will entitle you to just 2 activities and if you want to do more activities you’ll have to pay P50 for every activity so with the voucher, you have 12 activities for everyone, So I have saved quite a lot for this family time.
Maybe you are wondering, “what are these so-called “activities” that she’s talking about?!”, I’ll explain (of course!).
When you go there, you are not just going to look at animals but you can interact with them, like really. You can feed them, hold them, touch them, pet them (make sure you do not hurt them), ride them (just the horses though and only the kiddos are allowed to do this), take unlimited photos with the animals, wall climbing, zip lining and swimming for the kids!
When I bought the voucher I didn’t expect much, knowing that it is in Manila Zoo and I had been there before and so I thought it’ll just be like that. But low and behold, I WAS WRONG! My family’s experience in the Kinder Zoo is just amazing! We all had fun (yes, even my in-laws had fun!), especially my son and niece. It was my son’s first time in a Zoo so everything was amazing for him, seeing and touching an actual snake is kind of a challenge for him!
I must tell you that if you are planning to have some fun family time, try visit the Kinder Zoo Adventure Jungle and I am sure that you and your family will enjoy your time here!
My Tips for visiting the Kinder Zoo:
1. Bring extra clothes and toiletries, you will need it. Since the place is open, it doesn’t have fans just the air in the area so you will get sweaty depending on how active your sweat glands are, but just bring extra clothes and toiletries such as soap, alcohol and towel since you will be holding/touching animals, or your kids will do the wall climbing or zip lining activity, you all need to wash your hands or even your face just to feel refreshed after your visit.
2. If you want to make the most of the activities,you can bring your child’s swim gear so that they can enjoy swimming there (do not worry, the kiddie pool looks clear and clean).
3. Try visiting the place by early morning, they open at 9 am or late afternoon at around 4 pm, so that the sun is not that too bright or too hot because you and your kids will suffer and also its not fun if its raining, so avoid visiting during rainy days.
4. To enjoy the Kinder Zoo as much as we did, make sure to always check on discount voucher sites for great deals like this! :)
