Visit the complex, nestled in the jungle, for a chance to see one of its 35 resident Philippine eagles up close. These massive birds, with wingspans that often exceed 2.1 m (7 ft), represent a significant portion of the nation's total population of this species, which numbers only around 500. Explore the center and its lush grounds, and keep your eyes peeled for both the famed eagles and other native birds that call the park home. You can call ahead to arrange a free guided tour, ideal for visitors interested in learning more about the local birdlife.

  • The place is fit to handle such magnificent birds of prey... Has big enough space for all the species being nurtured here. And they have good tasting golden pomelo...
  • The protected home of one of the largest eagles in the world - the Philippine Eagle. It's the only place where humans attempt to reverse the trend of the endangered eagle by making this a safe haven for the birds to propagate. You will see here the magnificent eagles in their protected habitat.
  • A good place to learn about our national bird, the Philippine Eagle.
  • They're doing an intervention to control the dwindling population of Philippine Eagle species. But in doing so they need to house them in the center. By the time they are released into the wild, it is a new struggle for survival because the raptors need to adjust to their new environment which is free from human intervention that they have been used to.
  • Its giving me a peace of mind .

Where to stay in Davao City

You won't find a shortage of accommodations in Davao City, nor a lack of choice between different styles. Close to the central People's Park, a number of hotels great and small offer arrays of facilities to match the number of stars they display outside. A number of fairly basic family-run guesthouses offer up the budget options in town, located primarily on the side streets to the north and south of this central area. Look inland and out of town for a collection of guesthouses located right in the thick of the rural landscape.
