Hey there, lovers of Kingdom Animalia! Wanna have a close encounter with ostriches, snakes, and big birds? Wanna see a wide and wild collection of stuffed animals? All you’ve got to do is just hop in to Baluarte Zoo‘s coach in Vigan, Ilocos Norte!
The Ilocandia Tour we had last June included this zoo trip for the kiddos we had on board. But it was not only the kids who got amazed by all the animals they saw. We, adults were more than amazed on how extravagant Mr. Chavit Singson is as a licensed hunter hobbyist! He’s currently the president of the Philippine National Shooting Association, a local governing body for shooting sports in the country since 2018. The photos below are the stuffed animals he himself hunted all the way from Africa and other parts of the world.

Baluarte Zoo is located at Quirino Boulevard, Tamag, Vigan City, Ilocos Sur. If you happen to visit, also try their sugarcane juice. The last time I had one was 2015 in Vietnam. Well this one in Ilocos is tastier with the zest of lemon! Reinvention is always good!
