Some people will be upset about the small enclosures for some of the animals, but, remember, it's a small island and the animals looked healthy. We missed the educational show which was presented in English. I went with several children and they loved it. They need more environmental education, and being able to see animals and learn more about them is the best place to start.

Like a mini zoo. With scheduled shows good for family with kids. The entrance fee also let's you access the nearby butterfly park. Entrance fee for both parks is 399. Not too well maintained though. But we all enjoyed the different animals enclosed there. They also have petting zones and photo zones.

Entrance fee is quite high specially if you come late in the afternoon and there is no show anymore, and the butterfly house which is included in the price won't show anything anymore after dusk. But anyway was nice to see some other animals as well too. And fortunately they was a nice fire show outside the park in the village which staff of the park announced also and advice to go there.

Great place for kids to experience and get close to animals. Many other things to see other than crocs. But the amount of crocodiles are mind-blowing. The food bill must be something. So go check it out and enjoy . Experience the butterfly house as well. Small by quaintly
Love the place and its animals, especially the crocodile which has lots of group size. We also witness the animal presentation which we have participated in the events. The place also has crocodile and ostrich ice cream, with the added of a coffee from a civet animal. Very informative and family friendly place to visit.

The Davao crocodile Park all started from the fascination of the owner, Mr. Philip Dizon, to Saltwater and Freshwater Crocodiles. He did not think of it as a lucrative business until he learned that crocodiles are raised in United States not just for public viewing but as well as for production of leather purposes. It was in November 1995 when the government has given the owner the accreditation and permit to operate the 1st Davao Crocodile Park. 10 years later , on August 18, 2005, the world-class Davao Crocodile Park was opened with the help of the consultant Dr. Gilbert Buenviaje. The Davao Crocodile Park Inc. is owned and operated by a group of businessmen headed by Mr. Sonny Dizon, a resident of Davao City.
