Avoid Mamba Village if you can. Opt out of it if your tour company tries to take you here. KFC or anything else would be better. The facility has 69 crocs which we were looking forward to seeing, it was such a sad sight. All the crocs look ill and miserable. We were asked if we wanted to hold a... More

The crocodile at the entrance of the Mamba Village was a sure sign that more should be expected and true to my feelings I found huge crocs. Loved the delicacies served at the Mamba Village. It was also nice to walk there from Midview Hotel without straining.

The crocs area is ok but the rest of this place is falling apart. Not very good at all. Got 1 Giraffe and 2-3 ostrichs on the other side of the lake but that is all. Not good value for money

We had lunch there, it was a disappointing and overprices buffet of local food. It is a huge restaurant and we were the only people there. Would not go again.

We weren't expecting that much from our visit to be honest but we were pleasantly surprised. There was a nice cafe/restaurant area and we had a couple of reasonably priced drinks before the tour. A guide walked us round and was very informative. The gardens are pleasant and in all it was a very well spent couple of hours.

The atmosphere is very wonderful. All the animals there and the arrangement of the place makes you feel to be in totally a whole different relaxing place in the world. I definitely recommend this place to everyone.
