The Mambukal Resort and Wildlife Sanctuary in Murcia town is now open, but visits are limited only to day trip, according to the Negros Occidental Provincial Tourism Office.
According to the Capitol, reservation is required and only fully vaccinated individuals will be allowed at the resort.
The sanctuary that is home to numerous flora and fauna, was once converted into a quarantine facility at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and since then it was closed to the public. After it was re-opened late last year, the provincial government was forced to ceased its operation in December 2021 due to necessary repairs and clean up, as a result of the damages brought about by typhoon Odette.
With its re-opening, the public will now have a chance to enjoy various activities in the sanctuary including swimming, soaking in natural hot springs, nature trekking, hiking to the waterfalls, and bird and bat watching, among others.
For reservations and inquiries you may contact (0961) 757-9710, (0909) 976-9988 or visit Mambukal Resort and Wildlife Sanctuary Office at the Provincial Capitol Lagoon. Reservation Time is from 9:00AM – 3:00PM, Monday – Friday.
The resort management encourage visitor to bring in their cooked food for now as the food court is still closed. The resort has also implemented a “no cooking policy” within the sanctuary.
