Animal Kingdom – DNAP

#animalkingdomdnap Tambojangin 4.5km

Just ten minutes from the highway, the Animal Kingdom – DNAP in Tambojangin, Amlan beckons you to come and experience all the park has to offer.  The Nature Park features two sections:  the Bahay Kubo—a showcase of best practices in agriculture, and the engaging Animal Kingdom. Doubling as a rescue and conservation center, the Animal Kingdom is home to a collection of endemic and exotic wildlife.  There are so many activities for families, students, and all young at heart.

At the Animal Kingdom, you can cuddle a lovebird while feeding it out of your hand; have a chicken dinner and a conversation with a Philippine saltwater crocodile as you feed it via a rod with chicken on a string—don’t forget to tell him about your day; and let’s not forget our curious albino python, who will give you a loving hug if you hang him round your shoulders.

If you still want more then stay for snacks and the animal parade later in the day.
