I remember going to Albay Wildlife Park a couple of times when I was in college. It’s best to go in the morning as the weather can be SCORCHING HOT in the afternoon. It’s a nice place to hang out with your family and friends.
One of the attractions is the man-made lake where visitors can rent a boat.
They also have a playground for the kids.
After Julienne explored the playground, we went to see the aviary. They have beautiful birds on display.

The park also has an aviary with different types of birds. But personally, I kinda feel sorry for the birds in captivity. They have no room to “spread their wings and fly.” A lot of them were really lacking energy too.
We also went to see the reptiles. The cages of the lizards and the snakes were not very clean. They also have no drinking water when we saw them. I had a feeling like they were being kept there and nobody cares if they died. It was just a feeling I got when I saw their living condition. I could be wrong but it was feeling I had as a visitor of the park. So, shout out to the local government of Albay, please see to it that the animals are well taken cared of.
We also saw the lion and the tiger, which was the highlight of the trip. The lion was walking around inside his cage whereas the tiger was hiding so no pictures.
Another highlight was the encounter with the funny monkey duo.
Over-all, I think it is a nice place to hang out and see some wild animals. It is also very near Lignon Hill so next time, I think we’ll be checking that place out as well =)
