They accomodate walk-ins. They open the gates every 30 minutes. Start the tour with an orientation, then to the crocodile nursery, followed by the walk over the crocodiles. Get a chance to have a picture with a baby crocodile for free! And that's it. Buy souvenirs. Nothing more exciting after that.

While the conservation is not quite to USA standards I did feel those working here really cared for the animals. The cages where much better than what we saw in Malaysia. Our favorite, the bearcats, had a nice open enclosure. We were actually surprised they didn't escape so they must enjoy their life here. The crocodiles were mostly separated to... More

A Well organized tour, very interesting. Tour guide was very knowledgable. The place was crowded but maintained clean. We are expecting to buy some crocodile leather products or novelties assuming that it will be cheaper from them than buying from the mall but it's not available. Overall, it's a good experience.

At just 40PHP entrance fee for adults and 10PHP for kids, the Palawan Wildlife Rescue and Conservation Center is one of the best places I've been to that takes care of animals. The place was clean and the tour was well-organized, plus the tour guide was very knowledgeable about the animals. You could see really big crocodiles there, which is... More

I knew crocodiles are big but to see them up close! Lol. Entrance is 40. There's a guide to give you info about the crocs. Picture op with a 3year old croc but the prints are expensive (230) for a 5R I think. Better just use your phone. This place could use some renovation.

I never had a close distance with a croc before. Enjoyed holding a baby croc for picture taking. The wishing well full of crocs are scary but worth the try.

Also known as the crocodile farm. Here you will see large crocodiles in captivity most of them when captured in palawan rivers. Crocodile eggs and hatchlings are also one of the attractions. Other animals are also in the wildlife park like the palawan bear cat and philippine macau's and monkey's.
