Calauit Safari Park in Busungua gears up for reopening


The Palawan provincial government announced that the Calauit Safari Park in Busuanga might start accepting local tourists in March.

The Capitol has started its preparations for the reopening of the park. The Provincial Task Force Against COVID-19 together with the representatives of the Provincial Tourism Office conducted an inspection last Friday.

The officials wanted to ensure that minumun health standards will be strictly enforced once the park accepts tourists.

PDRRM Officer and Emergency Operation Center Manager Jeremias Y. Alili said that the park is now ready to reopen subject to some recommendations on minimum health protocol enforcement.

“Ini-expect natin na ‘pag nag open tayo eh dadagsa lalo na ‘yong locals, taga Coron, medyo sabik din silang mamasyal so dapat may sistema pa rin na ma-maintain ang social distancing at saka ‘yong pag obserba ng minimum health standards, so dapat kailangang maayos” said Alili.

Meanwhile, Provincial Tourism Officer Maribel Buñi said that the park’s administration is also ready to reopent.

“Handa na sila pero may sinasabi si Mr .Alili na puwede pa nating dagdagan ang kanilang preparedness sa pamamagitan ng isang training para mas lalo tayong handa” Dr. Myrna Lacanilao, Provincial Economic Enterprise & Development Officer and Calauit Safari Park Director, said.

Lacanilao said that only local tourists will be allowed for the mean time.
