We visited this as part of a city tour package. We concentrated on the crocodile farm, seeing crocs from the baby 30cm up to a giant 5 metre one. You got to see all the stages and even managed to hold one.

Some interesting facts about local wildlife and good tour guides. The large crocodiles are in really small enclosures. Its nice to see some native animals too, but the poor things look so depressed. The cages are just too small for them. Its a shame because the area is so pretty, it looks like a rainforest. The canteen is average too,... More

More than the view of crocodiles in different sizes, the place also offered huge walking trail along the jungle which looked interesting but which we did not have much time to spare for. Worth trying here is the crocodile sisig, if you'd dare :-).

A tour that's less than 20 minutes. They will just show you the crocodiles and that's it. They need to have a bigger park i guess, and an interactive tour.

This place may have a complete facility so to speak but it has lost its core mission and vision of spreading to the guests the importance of crocodiles and their conservation as a whole. Where can you find a crocodile conservation center that also has crocodile sisig being offered? Totally preposterous and dubious! This center can use a new management,... More

Crocodile farm as they are known.You will learn a lot from this place about crocodiles. You will see baby crocs or even the biggest crocs in captivity. You will also be given a chance to have a photo with love crocs. Great place to visit.

We had to be in the conservation center by 1130 because they normally schedule tourists by batches. There are a lot of crocodiles in the farm and they will provide you a brief history and information regarding the sanctuary. This is one of the destinations when you avail of the city tour.
