Had a great time here. There's an opportunity (paid) to hold & have photos with a baby crocodile as well as feeding the giant tortoises. It was lovely to get up close to these animals. The park also has bats, iguanas, monkey and an insect museum.

Only crocodiles and the giant tortoises worth to see. Rest are just average and nothing to comment for. In case you have visited other Zoo parks in other countries then there is nothing to get from this park, from the other side if you have not visited many zoo parks in other countries then maybe you like it.

We also went there to see crocodiles, and frankly spoken they are dull animals :-) BUT it was a great surprise to find also other animals: iguanas, bats and baby-crocs (pictures taken with these in my hand) monkeys and small tortoises. AND giant tortoises, which you could feed, touch and pet. Suberp! And the one dashing place for us was... More

This enclosed "forest" in the middle of sugarcane fields houses many species of animals, mostly reptiles. There is a recommended pathway where you will be sure to not miss anything, and that includes about 20 different spots! They are mostly known to have Nile crocodiles which are bred in captivity. If you are lucky, they may have a show in... More

A little bit tired in places but the crocodiles and the giant tortoises made our young children's eyes light up. Certainly worth an outing

If you like zoos, then this is a place not to be missed at all. We saw live feeding of crocodiles. There are a bunch of creatures like giant tortoises, deer, Iguana, monkeys etc. The tortoise pen is open to public - you can touch the tortoises and even click your pictures sitting on them. The tortoise museum and insects... More

Giants Tortoise were the only real attractions; i think it should be named Tortoise Park instead. Entry fees is too high. Tortoise can be seen at other places also as such would not recommend wasting money and time.

A small attraction just off the main coastal road. Fantastic one on one with tortoises. Say hello to the crocodiles and there are nurseries for both. Recommended.
