Great place to visit to learn about the crocodile and the industry in South Africa. You can witness feeding on certain days as well as hatching of babies. You also get the opportunity to hold newly hatched crocodiles. Highly recommended.

The wait to the feeding was a bit long. But it was informative and interesting. At least can keep the little people excited and anticipating the holding of the hatchlings. I would recommend it to friends because unlike other places they keep a significant number...More

You can see these crocs knows they get food twice a week...we were there while they were fed and some of them didn’t even make a attempt to get some. They are so fat!! The kids enjoy it and the snake display is good!

If you've never seen crocs before then worth the visit. Pricing definately geared towards international guests especially the shop. We were lucky enough to be there on feeding day for the crocs which made the entry fee a bit more worth it. The snake display...More
