Good place to take the kids for a days outing. Spend a few hours, take them cycling on the lake in a water cycle etc.,

“Unfriendly staff and miserable conditions”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

If you're interested in seeing crocodiles being prodded with sticks and other wild animals that are obviously on display for financial profit (as opposed to conservation), then this is the place for you. The staff was unfriendly and rushed. I went there with my eight-year-old son. Although we enjoyed seeing the crocs, it was a disappointing experience. Given the experience, the cost was much too high.

And, don't bother bringing your East Africa resident visa... Resident discount only applies to Kenya.

“Excellent place and very informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

See large crocs and the botanical garden. I enjoyed the aquarium though very small compared to the likes of Dubai Aquarium. The story of crocodiles being fed once a week and seeing them feed is fascinating. A nice place to visit while in Mombasa

“Good for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Went here to celebrate a birthday party and met this blankets and wine event happening here. It was terrible. No parking, no one to attend to you...confirm any major event before booking this place. However on a normal day its totally entertaining for kids.
