“Service has to be improved”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

They have feeding time. Restrant service is terrible. You can only go when you have plenty of time. Mombasa Mamba Village is more interesting if you really want to see many crocks.

“Mamba Village”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

If you are interested in crocodiles then a visit here is well worth while. Although the place is a little run down the crocs are taken care of and lead easy lives. We had a guide called Lennard who was fantastic! If he shows you round then you will be in for a croc lesson. He was reeling off interesting croc facts like there was no tomorrow. You get to see the adult, teenage, and lastly baby crocs. You can hold a baby one and it is great to be able to see one so close up. They also have tortoise and ostrich there. There is a play park for kids which is a little rustic. If you want lunch then there is a nice restaurant there, about 800ksh for a main meal. They feed the crocs on a Sunday afternoon at half 4 if you want to see that. It is about 1000ksh for an non resident, much cheaper for residents.

“Good Price for Locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Had taken couple of my friends and wife there, and found a staggering difference in price! It is over priced for sure if you are a tourist, but for a Kenyan, the pricing is very reasonable. The scenery is good too, have some big crocs & baby ones to view..

Restaurant was not bad either. Nice spacious grounds

“Nice enough, but pricey”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Except the (overpriced) restaurant, the place is looking a little tired and sad. It is cool to see crocodiles up close, and learn about them from the guide (no tipping needed), and the lake is pretty enough, but overall they need to invest some of that steep cover back into the facilities. I'd go again since it is a unique place to take visitors who have already done most if the sights, but wouldn't include on a "must-see" list.
