Be one with nature at the Paradizoo Theme Farm

10:17:00 PM

Have you ever felt that moment when you just want to take a break from your busy and stressful workplace and get away from the hustle and bustle of your city life? Then, a visit at Paradizoo Theme Farm is something I would definitely recommend! Located at Km. 63 Panungyan Mendez Cavite, Paradizoo Theme Farm is one of Zoomanity Group's theme parks that will let you be one with nature, as you breathe fresh air, appreciate flowers and plants and interact with different farm animals.

Thanks to Ms. Grace of Tag Media and to Ms. Karren of Zoomanity Group for inviting me to visit Paradizoo Theme Park last July 16, 2016 together with my Pinoy Blogger family. There were a lot of people present at that time because it was the second day of the 4th Farm Tourism Conference which is a special seminar that teaches how to integrate tourism and agriculture and to inspire local farmers to explore new possibilities in generating income. Check out my blog about the 4th Farm Tourism Conference to learn more about this event.



We first had a courtesy call with the owner of Zoomanity Group, Mr. Yupangco at the Paradizoo Cafe and then we started our tour around the 12 hectare farm.



We first went to the Farm Animal Zoo where you can feed bunnies and guinea pigs by purchasing a carrot on a stick. You get to see a lot of hen and roosters, duck, miniature horse, wild hog, goat, ostrich and even camels. You will also be able to meet Voltes V, the 5-legged albino carabao, unfortunately, he was not in the mood to show off his extra leg as he was sitting the whole time we were near him. 



If you're lucky, you get to see them milk a goat and sheer a sheep or you can give it a try as well. 


The next area we visited was the Flower Garden, Bonsai Garden and the Vegetable Farm. Kids will love the Flower Garden especially the one arranged to be a humongous flower, a chess board and Snow White and the 7 dwarfs statue displays:



Zoomanity Group's Bonsai expert, Mr. Atish Dipankar Sarker from Bangladesh, is very much available for interview to answer queries all about Bonsai. There are displays at the Bonsai Garden but the most beautiful and oldest bonsai collection they have are displayed at their Midori Japanese Restaurant that can be exclusively accessed by Alabang Country Club members only.


Mr. Atish

A vast pineapple plantation can be seen prior to reaching the entrance of the Vegetable Farm. Once you are inside, you'll be seeing familiar vegetables that are included in the famous Filipino song "Bahay Kubo".



We then had a light lunch at one of the venue area in Paradizoo that is usually used for wedding receptions. It is beautifully situated at the highest peak of the farm that will give you a great view of Paradizoo.



After a sumptuous lunch, we then decided to check out the Pet Cemetery, Butterfly Garden and Bee Farm.



We were lucky enough to witness how honey is extracted from the artificial beehive and how it is transferred to a jar using a manual hone extractor. I was also able to taste the honey from the pieces that fell off the artificial beehive and it was sweet indeed.



After the tour, we were privileged to meet the man behind Yupangco Group of Companies and Zoomanity Group, Mr. Robert Yupangco, that gave a brief introduction as to what made him put up all his theme parks and he also shared his upcoming projects. He also introduced all his staff who helped him manage his theme parks:



Before leaving Paradizoo Theme Farm, you might want to grab souvenirs/pasalubong for your loved ones. Check out their Discovery Shop and the Paradizoo Cafe for stuffed toys, shirts, hats, clothes, etc. They also have Guyabano and Malunggay concentrates that you might want to try out as well.



Will definitely bring the kids here soon! I'm sure they will love feeding the animals at the Guinea Pig and Bunny Village as much as I did. Just a few tips for those who are planning to visit Paradizoo Theme Farm soon:


  • Bring a hat or umbrella to protect your skin from the sun's UV rays
  • Wear comfortable shoes as you will do a lot of walking
  • Have extra money on hand because you might want to purchase items during the tour like the carrot on a stick to feed cute guinea pigs and bunnies or buy a jar of honey at the bee farm
  • Make sure that you have a water bottle on hand to avoid dehydration
  • Charge your gadgets and bring a power bank to be able to capture your fun experience at Paradizoo Theme Farm
