This attraction always reminds me of the nursery rhyme ''Ten crocodiles were going to the river ... They wave goodbye, to all the little children, Their long tails swinging in the water, They're going out fight the elephants, Oh. ... They went to war to fight the elephant,.......'' I can just say that it is wonderful place to take the... More

I just can not imagine how this "attraction" is allowed to continue. It is dirty, cruel and completely unacceptable. It should be closed down.

Interesting for kids. Mamba means 'crocodile' in kiswahili. There is also a lake. The Giraffe Centre is also not far from here.

If you've already seen crocs in other places, then this place will not excite you. Even paying $10 will not be worth the site. The only experience that I can say took my interest are the baby crocs. But if you have time and your family is with you, then you can explore their picnic/park grounds as well as the... More

Great, Great Grounds! Horrible road leading to the site. Good waiters and staff but sometimes we needed to seek them out, but they complied when prompted. Good food and service, and unbelievable ambience.

We enjoyed a lovely, very reasonably priced lunch here after visiting the Giraffe Centre which is quite close by. The grounds are quite extensive and we sat at a table on the lawn overlooking a small lake and ate our 4 course set menu. The food was good for such a reasonable price, as was the service, and the setting... More

Simple place, nice place for picnic, but no green views. It is a nice place for the kids to play, although low classed.

I took a great of about 100 kids from our children's center for a fun day of rides, animals, and food. There's a lot to do, and something for the entire family. The food is good, but you really come here for the atmosphere!
