The Monfort Bat Sanctuary at Samal Island

I have seen pictures of the reknowned Monfort Bat Sanctuary in Samal Island prior to our trip to Davao. I know it’s a Guinness World Record holder for having the most concentration of Rousette fruit bats in a given area, but it really didn’t give me that I must visit this place vibe.

Earlier, with nothing better to do, we decided to drop by the place before doing the requisite sunset shoot. And I’m so glad we did. The Bat Cave, as the locals refer to it, made me feel like a National Geographic photographer even for just a few minutes.
