    You will require sunscreen, hat, bug repellent, refillable water container as you will be provided only a single new plastic mineral water bottle that you will need to refill, walking shoes that will get wet or strong sandals, swim wear, waterproof layer, dry clothes, educational giveaways like crayons for children in place of tip money. Note: The decision to take the boat is dictated by weather, tide, guest preference and road conditions. If travel by boat, we dispense with the short banca trip from the jump-off point of Macalachao after the 75 minute 4×4 ride from Camp Calauit. We will also forgo the hike into the waterfall.

  • Enjoy a barbecued lunch at Sinibayan Falls.
  • The giraffes literally feed out of your hands! Also, try explaining to people how you were able to pat a zebra!
  • While on the safari, keep your eyes peeled for the see the cute calamian deer.

Trip Info

At 3,700 hectares, it’s big and it turns the laws of the African Jungle on its head. Calauit Wildlife Park, where a variety of African species roam free in Southeast Asia’s largest exotic wildlife park, is an extraordinary evolutionary laboratory. Feeding a giraffe? Patting a zebra? Wow! Not in a million years have these animals been domesticated! Why? Come and find out and discover much more as you explore this surreal brainchild of a former dictator. This Tribal Adventures trip has been billed a million star experience.

You will check into a locally-crafted, fan-cooled, sea view, bamboo pavilion with a communal mini-plunge pool, fed by fire tubs called kawa. You can take a dip off the beach and snorkel around a coral reef 150 meters from the beach. Add to that the 4×4 transfer and the safari to Calauit Wildlife Reserve, which is home to zebras, giraffes and the endangered calamian deer species, an adventure wandering through the virgin rainforest to take a dip in fresh water lagoons and your own personal sea kayak to explore the coastal waters of Dugong Bay and you’ve got a two day trip that adds up to a week-long adventure.

Arrive from the airport by 4×4, travelling over rough road for 50 minutes to reach the base camp, Camp Calauit and the adjacent Palawan SandCastles. The trip to Calauit is early on day 02, around 7:00 am, after breakfast, by 4×4 or by motorized banca, with the option if you go by boat to paddle the mangrove channel and on to the Calauit Reception Center.

You will see the cute calamian deer thriving in the park; elsewhere they are endangered. Return to the 4×4 or kayak to meet the banca. After a 3-hour safari, we will visit Sinibayan Falls for a barbecue lunch and swim in the rainforest before returning to Camp Calauit and Palawan SandCastles in the mid-afternoon. If seaborne, you will paddle to your banca and you’ll go island hopping, stopping to snorkel. You might even spot a dugong! Even better, you might get out and even swim with one.
