FLY DAVAO VIA CLARK! LIFE IS HERE!

DAVAO: EXPLORE THE GREAT OUTDOORS!

Conquer the Highest Peak in the Country

The challenging trek to the Philippine’s highest peak towering at 10,311 feet, traverses through creeks, ridges and waterfalls with an amazing panorama of rainforest and fauna. Mount Apo, the grandfather of all the Philippine mountains. Trek your way to the highest peak and rediscover the first successful ascent led by Don Joaquin Rajal, a Spanish Politico General dating back October 10, 1880. Climbing Mt. Apo requires time, preparation and an experienced guide. Climbers reaching the summit are rewarded with the most spectacular views never to be seen anywhere in the Philippines.

White Water Rafting

White water river rafting along the winding Davao River is one of the latest adventure activities in the city. A high adrenaline adventure, it cruises through challenging rapids from Brgy. Tamugan to Brgy. Lacson in Calinan District.

Trekking Site

Only an hour and a half drive from the city proper, Marilog takes pride of its wonders such as spring resorts, caves, waterfalls and jungle trails. The district is also one of the city’s main sources of agricultural produce. Enjoy the mountainous and forested area with more or less 400 hectares and it’s suited for agricultural and tourism projects due to its weather (coldness) and preserved ecosystem of the area. Trekking site is accessible by foot or horseback.

Davao Golf

Davao has its share of world-class golf courses. Whether you plan to play golf at Rancho Palos Verdes or Apo Golf and Country Club, you are assured of the full advantages of gently rolling terrain to provide you a challenging game. At the end of the day, enjoy an excellent view while relaxing with a cool drink at the clubhouse.

Deca Wakeboard Park

For those who want to try wakeboarding, Davao’s Deca wakeboard Park is the first cable wakeboarding facility in Mindanao. This 8-hectare recreation resort uses Reixen Seilbahnen, the world’s leading manufacturer of cable wakeboard and waterski system. The resort also has restaurants, cottages and cabanas.

Extreme adventure

Davao also offers extreme activities for the fearless and adventurous. Tourists and locals can enjoy white skimboarding, white water rafting, ziplining and spelunking at very affordable costs.

Ziplining

Experience a rush of adrenaline with ziplining, one of the city’s most popular outdoor activities. Enjoy a panoramic view of the city by ziplining at Zip City, Outland Adventure and Eden Nature Park.

Queen of the Forest

On the slopes of Mount Apo was discovered the waling- waling, an orchid of exceptional attributes - with full, velvet petals tinged in royal colors of purple, red and yellow. So delicate is this stunning bloom that it can only thrive on flesh and balmy air. The waling- waling (Vanda Sanderiana) has since been successfully transplanted from its natural environment and cultivated in many of Davao’s flower farms. Retailing at several hundred dollars a plant, the Queen of the Rainforest has become an attractive business proposition.

Bird Show at Malagos Garden Resort

Colorful species of birds headline this one-of-a-kind bird show at Malagos Garden Resort. Eagles, hawks, parrots, crows, ostriches and even ducks perform fascinating tricks to the amusement of guests while educating the importance of conserving the environment.

Meet our Eagles

The Philippine Eagle (Pithecophaga Jefferyi) is considered one of the largest eagles in the world. It has the countenance of regal majesty- snowy white plumes dappled with gray, a distinct crested head matched with a pair of sharp eyes and strong curved beak, a powerful eight- foot wingspan, and lethal preying claws. This majestic bird of prey has been saved from extinction and - now a national symbol - is sheltered at the Philippine Eagle Nature Center in Malagos.

The Philippine Eagle Nature Center is a sanctuary for this endangered species. The center is primarily a breeding facility for the eagles but it is also a temporary habitat of different animals endemic in the region. Many species of indigenous flora, including the waling waling and orchid, flourish in the park’s flawless natural beauty and rugged environment. The Philippine Eagle Research and Nature Center in the Malagos rainforest in Calinan is only 45 minutes away from downtown Davao.

Crocodile Encounters

Davao Crocodile Park is home to the largest crocodile in the country aptly named Pangil (“jaw”). Aside from this 19- foot reptile, other mindorensis and porosos crocodile species, wild cats, pythons, turtles, lizards, monkeys, and varieties of exotic birds and butterflies can also be found inside the mini-zoo.

Eden Nature Park

Eden Nature Park, a mountain resort at 3,000 feet above sea level is 95% man-made! It is a great model of how we can re-create nature and rebuild a lost environment. Discovered sometime in 1971, the resort used to be a logged-over area covered only by a blanket of wild grass. Its potential was, however, readily seen by the owners as the property provided an imposing view of Davao City and the Davao Gulf. Not long after, terraces were carved out of the mountain slope, and thousands of pine tree seedlings were planted. As the pine trees grew, they provided canopies allowing other trees and plants to grow and creating a secondary forest. Today, there are thousands of pine trees spread throughout 80 hectares, providing a refreshing backdrop to the various attractions in Eden Nature Park. Peace, serenity, bonding and celebration amongst the splendor of creation. Eden is a home to vast gardens of herbs and organic vegetables, lush field of exotic and tropical foliage, acres of lofty pines and fruit trees, and showcases of exotic and indigenous creatures at the Deer Park and Bird Walk.

Maxima Aqua Fun and Canopy Tours

At Maxima Aqua Fun, you can enjoy swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and fishing. Also, an ideal jump off site for island hopping. Nearby is the San Jose Wall & Cave, a perfect spot to go diving, ideal for beginners and professional divers. You may also want to take a refreshing freshwater dip on one of Samal’s hidden treasure by taking a leisurely hike to Haguimit falls, a stone’s throw away from the beach house. An ideal place for group or family camping.
