There are a variety of crocodiles there from newly hatched ones to large ones that were captured. They supposedly serve crocodile meat in their restaurant. In back there are a lot of other animals and birds that come from this area. One is the Palawan bear cat. It is not a bear or a cat but looks like them.

We didn't get to see the whole place due to time constraints, but one of the most memorable experiences that I have here in PP is with the Crocodile Farm because I get to hold a small croc and take a picture with it.

This is a chance to see some very fear inspiring creatures up close that one hopes never to encounter in the wild. The alligators are huge and could be very frightening for some but we enjoyed being able to handle some of the smaller ones and see the big guys at a nice safe distance.

The only crocodile farm in Palawan. Needs more improvements on service and facilities. This farm should be made as a world class so that it can attract more tourists. Landscapes needs more improvement. This should needs more budget from government!...

So I have been to countries with wildlife preserves with a smaller budget than this (Indonesia, Kenya) and still saw that the animals they were saving were living in good conditions. This animals look miserable with the exception of the birds. Even the raptor cage looked weak for a bird of that stature. The croc pits were disgusting, and they... More

Yes it is nice to see some tiny crocodiles of less than one year old, as well as those which are really frightening big. And it is good to learn more about sweet water and salt water crocs. But most important is, that this corn breeding place is for renaturing them later, and not for making hand bags...

It was nice, but comparing to other things to do and see on the island, I would rather skip it, unless I have a year to spend.. The centrum is nice, runs tours every half an hour. You can eat simple local food in small local restaurant (very good). There is quite low protection when walking above the big crocodiles,... More

Palawan Wildlife Center is a place to go if you want to see different sizes of crocodiles and other animals endemic in the place. Basically their main attraction is the saltwater crocodiles. And nothing more exciting to see. The place is too big yet too few animals can be sighted. It is foul smelling a sign that the cages are... More

Very informative tour. You can see different types of crocodiles and other animals inside the area. They offer a free picture taking where you can hold the baby croc. You pay bucks (like 200PhP) when you want to print your photo for a souvenir. there are lots of souvenir shop outside the area where you do the tour but just... More
