Paradizoo, Tagaytay

DSC07183Paradizzo highlights are simple: the free animal feeding stations, miniature horses running around, butterfly sanctuary and beekeeping. The grounds are pretty large and green. If you have kids who really want to feed animals or are interested in bees and butterflies then give it a go. If you go on a weekday you can combine this activity with another because your traffic will be seriously shortened. *Read more of our midweek adventures, #AnyWeekdayTagaytay here, here and here.

My kids loved this playground despite it being a bit rundown.
Should you feel so inclined, you can actually stay in a cabin at Paradizoo.

We spent well over 45 minutes feeding the camels and horses. The kids could not get enough. I really liked that you did not have to pay extra for this activity as opposed to other zoos we have visited. DSC07195

After trial and error we learned these camels prefer only the green stems.

Chomp chomp.

I was surprised how engaged the horses were. We have something in common, always motivated by food.

Don’t forget about baby. The boys (ages 1-5) all loved feeding the animals.
Wild geese roam about, do watch out because they can be aggressive. The mini horses were adorable and friendly. You are able to pet the mini horses as they also freely roam the property. Make sure to wash your hands after!

My kids could not get enough of the free range animals. They loved being on their level. It made me a little uneasy as we are trained to never touch animals and they are usually caged, this was actually a nice change. DSC07199

I spent a large amount of time in the butterfly sanctuary. There are TONS of butterflies but I only saw two varieties. Caterpillars are plentiful as well.

Tagaytay seems to be a popular location for bee farms and Paradizoo had their own bee keeping on site. It was fascinating to see how many bees there are in one box. DSC07263DSC07262
