Play with a Baby Lion & Have a Snake Massage at Davao Crocodile Park

Each year, new attractions are added to make your experience different from your last visit. Here are 5 new must-try activities in the park:  

1. Snake Massage

Let the gentle Burmese pythons ease the stifness of your body muscles.  They have an instinctive ability to go where the tense muscles are.

2. Animal Talent Show

Your visit to the park won't be complete if you don't get to watch the animal talent show where various kinds of animals showcase their abilities: an orangutan riding a bike and dunking a basketball, macaws segregating trash, and eagles and hawks doing tricks. 


3. Farmville

Get up close and personal with ostriches, ducks, goats and sheep while crossing a bamboo bridge around the farm.

4. Koi Fish Spa

Dip your tired feet and get a spa from the koi fishes.  Those who are scared to dip and get nipped can just enjoy feeding the fish.

5. Baby Lioness

Lian is just a few months and is still adjusting to human contact so she’s still a bit shy just like in this photo, but once you tame her, you'll definitely enjoy playing with this fur baby! 

These are just 5 of the new attractions at the park so better watch out for more!

How to get there:
Davao City can be reached by plane from Manila and Cebu.  Major airlines have daily flights to Davao.   The Davao Crocodile Park Complex is located at the Diversion Road 15 minutes away from the airport.
