Day 2: Calauit Safari Sanctuary and Black Island, Busuanga

Continued from:  Day 1 Coron Island Hopping and City Tour

The 3 1/2 boat ride to the Calauit Safari Sanctuary was absolutely worth it upon seeing these lovely zebras! No need to go to Kenya in Africa to see these animals live in action. We have it just right here in the Northern tip of Busuanga.

One of the amazing mysteries that lie behind the zebra's signature striped suit is that no two zebras have the same pattern of stripes (just as no two people have the same fingerprints) cool beans, right? 

How to tell if a zebra is a male or a female? One clear difference is the black vertical stripe between the buttocks. The male has a very narrow stripe about 1 inch wide and the female has a stripe about 2 or 3 inches wide. ( Somebody stop me! I could talk more and more fascinating facts because I find them really intriguing. I just have to say that it was truly mesmerizing, seeing them upclose. )

Day 1: Coron Island Hopping and City Tour

Hello sunny skies! I wanted this birthday trip to be as easy peasy as possible, so I availed of the services of Calamian Islands Travel and Tours. 

After the meet and greet at the airport (with extra sweet welcome leis) we boarded an air conditioned van and headed off towards Coron Town proper. Travel time is approximately 45mins. To while away time, the courteous staff imparted some facts and history of the place while en route our destination.
