Its a very nice place to relax with family or friends in a sunny afternoon.Entry fee is 280/= per adult citizen.If you have children, this is a good place for them to see live crocodiles and a variety of fish. It may not be a good idea to visit the snake area if you have a phobia for them. After... More

Typically the next stop on the tourist circuit after the giraffe center, this village has a very small enclosure of crocodiles that was actually quite interesting to see. Mostly due to the guide we had who knew an incredible amount about crocodiles and their habits, and here you can even hold a baby one (really cute!) the ostriches are not... More

Boasting as the largest crocodile farm in Africa, this is a must to see for any tourist or traveller to Mombasa. You can spend a few hours either in the morning or afternoon and a good way to spend time as a family or as a group. They do try and maintain the place and although established several years ago...

If you dont have any plans and you love crocs then make sure to stop by. Its a relatively tame experience. Lots of crocs though in various stages of development. They used to have a restaurant where you could eat the crocs that you viewed but the went out of business...go figure

Nothing special With this Place. Some masai tribe People in the entrace trying to get a tip. Lazy crocs laying around, not really doing anything. The guide was super cool, and funny. We got to hold a baby croc, that was fun!

The croc farm charges ten US dollars for entry for non-Kenyan adults. This is way too much to spend ten minutes looking at a pile of crocodiles in cramped, smelly conditions (you really don't need any more than ten minutes to walk round the place). The infrastructure of the caged-off areas is poorly maintained. I also got to see one... More

Cant go wrong with seeing all those crocodiles. Can be scary and keep a watch of your children wandering around. Friendly people overall.
