“Rather a let down”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

The entrance fee was quite steep at 650 kenyan shillings.In my opinion not worth the money and everyone you spoke to expected a tip. Big Daddy who is fed only weekly wasn't,t interested in his food on this particular Friday. I have mobility problems and found it quite challenging.

“Not very good”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

This place is run down and the crocodiles are kept in quite cramped conditions which are basically concrete pools. It is just a 2nd rate zoo.

“Nice experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

It is advisable to visit only if you have an interest in crocodiles, ostriches, tortoise because there is nothing more. For kids they would enjoy the boat rides and great food at the restaurant.

“Skip unless you have kids”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

Visited the village today. Place looks worn down and appears to be hurting. Unlike other reviewers we did not see any snakes, giraffes, peacocks as advertised on website or as posted by other visitors. Guide was a nice fellow and appeared to know his info about crocs and ostriches.

Would suggest that you skip unless you have an interest in crocodiles or have children. Not too sure about the rides. Looked pretty old.
