All about the Calauit Safari and Black Island.

A full package day of adventure which features Caluit Island Game Preserve, the stunning Black Island and Busuanga Town.

On Calauit Island you will come face to face with some of the African animals in the wild. Calauit Island is home to African wildlife such as zebras, giraffes, impalas, gazelles, bushbucks, elands, waterbucks, and tobis. You may be wondering how these animals get here. The animals were brought here from Kenya in the 1970s to save them from extinction. President Ferdinand Marcos relocated the locals to another island and ordered to clear the forest to make a suitable environment similar to the savannah.

Today, the African animals still roaming around the island and the number is increasing. They live in harmony with endemic Philippine animals like the mouse-deer, bearcat, Palawan peacock pheasant, sea turtles and Philippine crocodile.

Malajon Island, commonly known among locals and tourists as Black Island, is a large island located northwest of Busuanga Island. Black Island’s most impressive feature is a dark massive kart cliff nestled at the center of the island which crumbles into a long stretch of white sand beach along the island’s western coast.
There are several caves scattered around the islands but only a few are open to the public. According to local folklore, during the WW3 the Japanese buried their gold inside one of the cave.
The island is surrounded by azure water and there is also a shipwreck that lays right off the beach.
