A wildlife sanctuary, the Davao Butterfly House is a safe shelter and haven for butterflies, flowers, plants, and other exotic animals such as fishes, crickets, tarantulas and scorpions. It is one of the many butterfly conservation facilities in the Philippines.

The best time to observe butterflies in flight is in the morning with a good sunshine as many species undertake hatching, courtship and mating. During the heat of the day, butterflies take shelter under the leaves and this presents a good chance to observe them closely and take photographs. However, during cloudy days, or late in the afternoon, they usually hide.

Davao Butterfly House can be found in a 10 hectare area located not far from the Davao Crocodile Park complex along  Diversion Road, Ma-a, Davao City. It’s been in operation since 1995, and up to this date it still is alive and kicking. A childrens’ playground can also be found just outside of the Davao Butterfly House where both adults and children alike can rest and enjoy after the tour.
