Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Shirt but great adventure. Walking around is good for 15-30 minutes maximum. No guide so you sometimes might get lost. They also have moments where trainees will display the birds which is good. But hopefully not too much for owls since they are I think not comfortable with the sun. Eagle is a bit hard to see afar. But overall it's good.

Needs ergonomic help and maintenance but birds appear to be well cared for and cages were clean. I would suggest more donations.

One of the highlights of my trip to Davao City. Instead of taking a taxi or Grab, I decided to take a jeepney ride. Take a jeep to Calinan Transport Terminal and ride a van with label “CALINAN”. Travel time is approximately 1 hour. I asked the drover to drop me at Calinan Market and from there, I took a pedicab towards Philippine Eagle Center. My fare totaled to almost ₱300 instead of the ₱1,300++ if I took Grab.

Take time to observe the birds and be respectful of the surroundings (no noise is allowed, no littering, no scaring the animals, etc.). Try to leave some tip as well as this will go to the management of the center. Don’t forget to bring some insect repellant. Mosquitoes are everywhere!

The only thing that I didn’t like is the small enclosure of the majestic Philippine eagles. I wonder if they get depressed inside their very small and restrictive cages!

After my visit, I went out to the highway and hailed a pedicab and headed nearby Malagos Garden Resort (fare is ₱30).

From Malagos Resort, I went across the highway and took a pedicab towards Calinan. I asked the driver to drop me at “L300 or Taloda”. From there, just ride the van going to Roxas Night Market (just across Ateneo De Davao) for a sumptuous and cheap dinner.

We recently went to Davao and decided to visit the eagle center. We met two awesome tour guides, Luigi and Darwin ( interns) who are both knowledgeable and funny. Although Luigi was more talkative than Darwin. Even if the tour was only less than an hour it fells like I learned a ton about the eagles and other animals at the center. It’s worth every penny. I will definitely do this again when we’re back in Davao.

I highly recommend that you visit this place in the morning of your trip to Davao. This place closes at 4 pm in the afternoon. The visit is educational.
The entrance fee is only Php150.00.

You may head to Malagos for a hearty meal after.

As for our experience we enjoyed a lot and spend our time for exploring different collection of birds and animals. The environment is very peaceful and clean. The tour guides are friendly and gave us more knowledge. Highly recommended we will visit again next time.

We went to the Philippine Eagle Foundation's centre in Davao today. It was stunning and a great way to explore the tropical local flora and fauna. We were able to see families of monkeys frolicking in their habitat, and of course, the eagles and the important breeding program.
Vendors there support their communities with many hand crafted and locally produced goods. We are very pleased with our purchases and thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the centre.

I had the opportunity to travel to Davao City in the Philippines and it was an amazing experience. The city is full of life and there is so much to see and do. I would definitely recommend anyone who has the chance to visit Davao City. Here are some of the highlights from my trip:

One of the first places I visited was Mount Apo. It is the tallest mountain in the Philippines and it offers breathtaking views. I would definitely recommend hiking to the summit if you are able.

Another highlight from my trip was visiting the Philippine Eagle Center. The center is home to the world's largest eagle, the Philippine Eagle. I was able to see these majestic birds up close and learn more about them. I also enjoyed the beautiful scenery and wildlife that surrounded the center. I would highly recommend a visit to the Philippine Eagle Center to anyone interested in seeing these amazing creatures.

If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy the beach, I would recommend going to Davao Gulf known as The Samala Island. There are several resorts along the gulf that offer stunning views and plenty of activities to keep you busy. I also had the chance to go snorkeling in Davao Gulf. The water was crystal clear and there were so many colorful fish. I would definitely recommend this activity to anyone who enjoys being in the water.



Overall, I had an amazing time in Davao City and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a place to travel. There is so much to see and do and the people are incredibly friendly. I can't wait to go back!.

We were in the area so we decided to add this to our itinerary. The birds were very majestic, but a quick lap around the Center and you're done. Be prepared for 2 fees (I think the first is for parking, and the second is to enter the center). Great cause.

You want eagles.. plenty gorgeous Philippine eagles here where you can see them up close.. Hope the govt can add more funds to this center to improve its condition for more successful breeding and to effectively campaign for our eagles.
