Around and Within The Davao Crocodile Park

If you’ve thought of going bungee jumping or zip lining but have been quite apprehensive at doing both, Zip City may just be the place for you if you’re in the area.

my acrophobia was in full gear after we climbed the 30 foot tower. A soon to be diagnosed (with pneumonia) MAX was crying coz he wasn't feeling fine. I had to carry him while facing my fear, and to top it all off, it was a VERY windy day.

Offering a beginner’s experience to do both at reasonable packages, this may be your chance to tick off these activities in your bucket list. The equipment is up to standard and the staff are quite helpful and knowledgeable of the process. For more info on Zip City, visit their Facebook Page HERE.

ziplining and controlled sudden drop had Phil feeling a-ok!

They also have a tie up with the Davao Crocodile Park that includes the Zorb ride and the Walk On Water Ride.

To get into the Davao Crocodile Park, you would have to pay the ff. rates:

Rates include entrance to the Park, the Butterfly House and The Tribu K’Mindawan Cultural Village.

We didn’t get to stay well into the night due to the MAX’s fever that day. If you do not have your own transportation, hiring a cab for the day is a good idea as cabs rarely go to the park as it is a 5-10 minute ride towards the main highway leading you back to the city.

The park has various animals endemic to the area. In fact, even the “regular” animals, or those that swoop in from outside the walls are a treat to see. Phil managed to see a hummingbird up close as well as this little fellow:

Of course, as the name of the park suggests, they have the biggest reptiles in the world residing under their roof.

It’s a pretty decent educational and cultural experience to go into this clean and stroller friendly park . Souvenirs and snacks at the main shop of the park are quite reasonable. If you're into handicrafts, check out the cultural village that comes after the Croc park. For more information, visit their website at this link.

BTW, if you feel the need to try eating exotic fare (like the inhabitants of the Crocodile Park), there's one such restaurant at the back of the Davao Crocodile Park. Check it out in our blog post: CROC MUNCHIES AND OSTRICH NOMNOMS AT RIVERWALK GRILL DAVAO.

From TMW, may all your wanderings be better than ours!

PS. Due to our lost memory card, most of our pics in the Davao Crocodile Park can't be posted here. However, we stand by our word that this place is worth the visit.
