We visited here for the first time to see if it is good place next time for our grandchildren. It is not worth coming from north island. Crocodiles were huge and turles big, that's all. 2 adults 780 rupia, far too much..!

We took the guided tour and very informative he was, explaining about the different species within the park. We came to see the Giant Tortoises and they did not disappoint, to see so many marching around was brilliant, you cannot appreciate how large they are until you are in with them all. We returned to their enclosure after our tour... More

We had a great time here- and if we had kids, we would take them back to it! We took the guided tour- which meant we could feed the bats, monkeys and fish by hand. The guide (Berty) was really knowledgable and helpful. He answered all our questions and showed us things we wouldn't have seen otherwise (like the chameleons... More

I went here to see the giant tortoises and from that perspective this place fulfilled my expectations. There were huge amount of tortoises and they were relatively active. Kids loved to feed them. For adults there was a lot of information about tortoises and other animals in Mauritius. There were also plenty of crocodiles, but they hardly ever moved. So... More

A great park with several interesting exhibits for wild life lovers. A great theme restaurant with crocodile delicacies. No vegetarian food so carry in case you are vegetarian. Holding a small crocodile in hand for a pic is a fun activity if u are not too scared.

We went here to visit as we didn't have time on our last trip & found the place really interesting. The park is not very big & can be walked round in about an hour or two but has lots of interesting attractions. They have a big area with all the huge Tortoises which roam around in different groups according... More
