Amlan Zoo Dumaguete – DreAMLANd Nature and Adventure Park

Amlan zoo dumagueteAmlan Zoo or DreAMLANd Nature and Adventure Park as far as world zoo’s go is tiny. But it is cheap and fun. Well worth a quick ride just North of Dumaguete for a little day trip.

Very easy to find, if you ride North of Dumaguete on the highway, pass the Maayo Shipping Company to Cebu and then look for a large Petron storage tank and yard on the right, it’s right next to that. If you get to the town capital of Amlan you have passed it, turn back and ride for about 1km.

What can I Expect to see at Amlan Zoo

After paying the 50 peso entry fee, you step forward to the bird aviaries. For 10 peso you can go inside and feed the birds. Hundreds of multi coloured small birds will take turns at eating out of your hand. Great fun, and a new experience for most. The camera got a workout early.

On the other side we had the rather spectacular Sea Eagles, of coarse with a 10 peso photo opportunity.

Amlan zoo eagleAs mentioned there are many birds to see and photo’s to take.

Stroll around the corner and up the hill and you get the the Tiger enclosure where there are two rather large tigers.

amlan zoo tigerOne of the tigers was just lazing in a half drum right next to the cage, feeling a bit hot obviously. Sorry but the cage makes it difficult to take a good photo but i had a go.

Amlan zoo monkeyThe monkeys in the middle were fun, they tease back, I was taking a photo of one little monkey and it took a grab at my iphone.

So I held it there and said, do you want this?

He reached out and grabbed it, lucky I had a good grip.

Quite funny.

Just a few other animals to note, there were a few varieties of goats, some sheep, camels, 3 large Ostrich’s, little horses all good to look at and take photo’s.

Amlan zoo snakesAmlan Zoo Snakes 2The Snakes were also fun, there are a couple of large albino pythons yellow in colour. Again for 10peso they will get them out for a photo, opportunity. We actually had them drape the snake around both mine and a friends shoulders at the same time, sorry missed the photo op. But Found a short Video, see my face at the end when it started getting close down below. Good laugh.

They are quite heavy, it was all good until the thing started sniffing around my shorts. Got a bit nervous. No issue though. Great fun.

Basically if you have a group of friends and want a fun day out, take a quick ride up to Amlan Zoo, maybe double it up with a trip to Amlan beach and make a day of it.

Cheap and Easy – Worth the effort.
