Upon entering the safari’s premises, all guests are required to undergo a short briefing done by the staff. This briefing includes a short history of Cebu Safari and Adventure Park and a reminder of the Park’s Policies. According to the staff, the 100-hectare park is owned by Michel Lhuillier (same owner of the M. Lhuillier pawnshop and ML Kwarta Padala remittance centers). The safari was the result of his love for collecting animals. The animals were flown from different countries like France and US. Part of the briefing was the schedule of the animals, too. The African Savannah is only available until 2PM and the tiger’s shifting schedule.
Adults can get in for a fee of Php800 while tickets for children 2-3 feet tall can be availed at a 50% discount. As for children below two feet, they get in for FREE!
