We were looking for something else to pair with our trip to the elephant orphanage since we had already done the giraffes and Bomas the day before but had missed the elephants. This ended up being a nice way to spend about an hour for our 4 and 2 year old. The crocodile exhibit is simple but with 3 different... More

I held a baby croc. Got to see a lot of crocodiles, ostriches. It was a nice place and the guide was very entertaining.

Ok so it's a bit pricy but for us it was worth every penny The guide we had was fantastic and he showed us everything in the park including all the plants of interest which close up to protect themselves His knowledge was second to none about the crocs and apart from holding the little crocs which make for a...

I visited Mamba village in Dec-2013 with my friends. It was a great experience with Turtles, Crocodiles, Ostriches. You can hold the Baby crocodile and Turtles in hand and even we got to see the ostrich eggs. On the wall they have drawn the ancient traditions/customs and one can also see the history of railway line built by Britishers between... More

A bit pricey but i feel it's worth, it especially if they let you hold the little crocodile and take a picture with it! And make sure you follow a tour guide who can explain you more about those Nile crocodiles!

The home of the crocodiles, Mamba village has got over 30 of these scaly, scary reptiles! You enter the village where Maasais greet you with their extremely high jumps. Although you burn a hole in your pocket at the ticket counter, the tour is worth it! The guides are enthusiastic and have their own fearless way with the crococdiles. They... More

We loved it here, staff are lovely, the grounds are beautiful too. We got the opportunity to hold a crocodile which is a once in a lifetime activity. Please remember to tip your guide well as they do rely on tips. The gentleman we had was very knowledgable, interacted well with us all and tailored the walk to our needs.... More

one gets to be very close with the crocs. Contrary to earlier reviews we found the crocs to be well kept and the place well maintained. The treat was when we were given a baby croc to touch, feel, hold and carry. There are also turtles in the area. We were well informed by the warden/ keeper (forgot his name)... More

After leaving the Giraffe Centre, travel just a short distance to Mamba Village. There is a huge indoor restaurant area, plus a huge garden area with plenty of seating. Sunday is best because there is a buffet on offer, and although we did not partake of the buffet, I had a look. The food looked fresh and inviting with so... More
