Thrilling family activities abound in this half-day private tour that will take you to the Davao Crocodile Park, Butterfly House, and the Tribu K'Mindanawan Cultural Village. Exclusively available on Friday and Saturday afternoons, this tour comes with the convenience of round-trip transfers from your accommodation in Davao City.
Your first stop is the Davao Crocodile Park, an educational farm that features a state-of-the-art crocodile farming system in the Philippines. It highlights the value of crocodiles in the indigenous ecosystem and the conservation and care for as many as 72 animal species. These include bearcats, raptors, monkeys, birds, snakes, and other reptiles and amphibians.
The park was home to Lolong, once the country’s longest crocodile in captivity at 20 feet and 3 inches. Since he passed, the largest here is now Pangil, an 18-feet saltwater croc. While full-grown park inhabitants like Pangil can only be viewed from a distance, you can join feeding baby crocodiles and even have photos taken.
The tour further comes inclusive of the wild animals' show where they perform endearing tricks.
More fun awaits over at the Butterfly House, a living museum of different species of butterflies, fish, crickets, tarantulas, and even scorpions. The sanctuary breeds the butterflies to encourage pollination of the surrounding districts.
To end the tour, you will stop by the Tribu K'Mindanawan Cultural Village. Look forward to a showcase of the diverse heritage of the many tribes in Mindanao. You can also shop for intricate souvenirs that represent distinct craftsmanship per group.
It is a unique opportunity to discover — or rediscover — the southernmost region of the Philippines, not only as a tourist attraction but as the home of numerous rich cultures. Your visit will conclude with a treat of musical performances by the locals, including an exhilarating fire dance.
