Jest Camp Adventure and Bird Park

       As much as I can, I would love to write about fun places that the whole family can enjoy. Fortunately for me, the kind group of Aristocrat took us on sort of a Blogger's Day Out in Subic when we went there to visit the Subic Branch of Aristocrat.

       We started the day by having what I would like to call "silog" breakfast at Aristocrat's Makati Branch. They have excellent breakfast sets all of which consists egg and garlic rice. Right after, we hopped on our fun V and started our road trip to Subic.

       After having a very filling Pinoy lunch at Aristocrat Subic, we went to Jest Camp, a great Zoo and sort of an amusement park that's very close to nature. But the rides they have don't involve roller coasters and other huge mechanical rides. They're more like those military training camps, but more fun!



       They also have a survival school where in natives would demonstrate how to pretty much survive in the wild using only a huge knife. It's really cool! But more on that later. Let's start on the zoo!


The Zoo Part

       They don't have much animals yet. They've been open for around a year or so and they're still developing the place. Nevertheless, we still had fun seeing amazing parrots and and other exotic and funny looking birds! Check out the photos of these amazing birds that deserve to be on the cover of a Bird's version of Cosmopolitan or Vogue hehe...

In this area, birds roam around freely. It's like a huge walk-in cage.

Rides and Attractions

       Jest Camp is a perfect venue for company team building. Here's the Aerial Adventure Walk where you can experience going through an aerieal obstacle course. It looks easy but I really wouldn't know because I was too chicken to try it hahaha! Plus I was wearing the wrong shoes. (Girls, you understand me right?)

The Mess Hall: Luto Sa Buho Lunch

       Since we were so stuffed from Aristocrat, we weren't able to experience the Mess Hall where people eat food cooked from bamboos, in an eco-friendly setting! Read more about it here.

       And of course, as any amusement parks and zoos, they also have a gift shop waiting for visitors to purchase some remembrance!
