Pamulaklakin Nature Park

Listed under National Parks in Olongapo City, Philippines.

Pin It

Subic Bay Freeport Zone, an ex-US Naval Base converted to a tax and duty-free area by the local community, is designed to function not only as a holiday destination but also as a conservation site. A number of rare species maintain populations in the wild here, and there is a cluster of eco-tourism theme parks dedicated to marine, animal and plant research and conservation.

One is Pamulaklakin Nature Park, home to the indigenous Aeta tribe, which worked with the long since departed US soldiers, teaching them jungle survival skills. The Aetas still share their skills with visitors today at the Jungle Environment Survival Training Camp (JEST), and will take you on a challenging safari into the forest and teach you how to find drinkable water, spend a comfortable night, find coffee beans, treat wounds naturally and even catch your dinner.
