    Sa 800/head, maka zipline and atv ride naba ta ana? Thank you!

    In contrast to the comment saying that Zoos teach young people that animal captivity is good. Actually, this depends on the management. But recently zoos are more like avenue to share knowledge, interest and attention to wildlife, which is not only solely for entertainment. I hope this is also the goal of the Mlhuillier’s.

    Will, me and my kids will be there after 2 years and that is 2020 pa. I don’t go to a place that is still under construction. Asahan nyo po yan! We will not forget it! We love adventure! Napuntahan na nga namin ang Mountain View! So hoping that yong adventure tingi ninyo matatapos na by 2020. Dagdag ninyo ang camping tingi at retreat houses din po. From children’s, youth, at young adult ministries naghahanap po kami ng places where we can do our campings. 100 hectares kamo ang lupain ninyo. reserve 5 hectares for campers with retreat houses po Mr. mlhuillier. Tiyak magkakapera kayo diyan.
    Thanks po for reading my comment.

    Can I visit the farm this coming March 10, 2017? If so how can I get there. I am a solo traveler and don’t have own vehicle so what transportation should I get when I arrived in the town proper of Carmen, Cebu.

    There is absolutely no need for zoos. We have the Cebu Zoo as a testament to that. Animals do not belong in captivity. One of the tigers from the same owners was relocated to the Amlan zoo because it was uncared for, emaciated and not given the proper amount of care. His disparity in size, health and overall state was very obvious compared to the other tigers. Having zoos to educate would just be a lame excuse because captivity is cruel. Animals in captivity only teaches our children that it’s ok to catch WILDLIFE instead of letting them stay in their own habitat. Captivity also does damage to the animals brain especially if they are in enclosures. Please think about how the animals will be before “attraction” and money. We should be better than this Cebu.
