CamZar – Camp Sabros, Davao

It was a good decision that we visited this place for our first day in Davao. We arrived at Francisco Bangoy International Airport around 9:25AM and we went directly to North Zen Hotel to leave our things. Since it was lean season the hotel allowed us to used the room at 10am.Yey! It was a very long trip to Camp Sabros but definitely worth it! First time to ride the Habal Habal too. We arrived in Camp Sabros at 1:00PM and because we were very hungry we opted to eat first and then rest before we tried the zip lines.

We suggest that you go to the camp as early as 8am so you can enjoy the view too and get to spend more time there.

On our way back to to Digos we chose to rode the Habal Habal (which we Paid 150 each.) because the van’s last trip back to Digos is only 5pm.

And of course, this trip will never be complete without taking photos of the place and of US haha

Thanks again to our very reliable tripod and remote control :D

ENJOY THE PHOTOS!

Camp Sabros Mountain resort is located in the highlands of Sitio Barras, Kapatagan, Digos City, Davao del Sur.  A part of the country’s highest peak – Mt. Apo, Camp Sabros boasts of zip line facilities with highest elevation and is among the very first outdoor adventure parks to offer zip-line adventure rides in the country.

It is about 2 hours away from the City of Davao. It is best to arrive at the Camp as early as 8 in the morning to see the captivating site of Mount Apo, the highest peak in the Philippines.

Camp Sabros is an adventure camp and a mountain resort. It is open daily, even during holidays. Ride operations start at 8:00 am till sundown.

Travel time from Davao City takes around 2 – 3 Hours depending on the speed of your transportation and the condition of the road.

If you plan to commute:

  • take the bus at the Ecoland Terminal in Davao City to go to Digos City Terminal.
  • From there take a tricycle ride to the “old Digos Terminal”
  • Then take the van to Camp Sabros

If you plan to bring your own vehicle: [check out our directional map below, it is also posted in the Photos section]

  • As soon as you reach the ‘Welcome to the Lion City of Digos’ sign [ with the statue of a lion], the road will split into two. Stay on the right road [ leading to Kidapawan] and watch out for the first road that turns to the right. You won’t miss it as there is a sign that says “This way to Kapatagan’. Take that road and go on [25 kilometers] until you reach the Sitio Barras check-point and camp parking area.

Note: even if the road to the camp itself has been widened, we discourage non-4-wheel drive vehicles from going up to the camp as the weather up there is very erratic. If it rains too long or too hard, your wheels may get stuck on soft earth on your way down. you may park your vehicles at the parking area at the checkpoint.

Upon reaching the camp parking area, you have 3 options to arrive to the Camp proper:

  1. Go hiking, it will take around 20 minutes of hiking upwards.  The fresh mountain air will be invigorating and the sweat you will work up from this short exercise is a welcome warm-up when you reach the camp where it is breezy and very cool.
  2. You may ride any of the available habal-habal [motorcycles]
  3. You may ride any of the available horses
