As we traveled outside of Davao City you could not help being aware of all of the greenery and lush agricultural fields as far as the eye could see. As we headed higher and higher we were nearly overwhelmed with all of the local exotic plants and trees as we got closer to our destination. We passed bountiful fruit stands loaded with every kind of fruit you could imagine. Making several pit stops to purchase these exotic looking fruits… the inside of our rental van looked like a fruit basket itself!
On our first days adventure we arrived at Malagros Garden Resort and attended the live bird and animal show and had a great local smorgasboard loaded with some of the best tasting topical fruits I had ever seen or eaten… complete with a local band to jazz it up. You could also spend quality time with your camera taking fantastic shots of rare topical plants and just enjoying the ambiance of the clear mountain air. I looked in one large tree and saw air-plants the size of small tents. Every nature path you took had a kaleidoscope of new and exotic plants to grab your attention.
Malagros Garden Resort is a full-scale nature resort complete with lodging, exotic gardens and orchids and a good place to stay a few days and enjoy the cooler climate and watch nature’s explosion right in front of your eyes.
This is a great resort for the entire family … you sit in an outdoor arena and are being entertained and educated about the local animals, birds and folklore! This is an excellent example of what a resort can do to help save our forests and protect our wildlife! The bird handlers were excellent and the local native tribe dances added a great asset to their presentation. On a scale of one to ten I would give them a 9.9 for an excellent animal and bird show and recommend this opportunity to any travelers in the Davao area.
