I liked the visit to the farm, we were lucky to be there on a day that they fed the crocodiles and had a very informative guide. We got to know snakes and crocodiles better and even held baby crocs.

The visit to the crocodile farm was really good. Interesting facts learned about the crocodile and snake species. The show was well presented by the personnel as they knew what they were talking about and had their facts straight.
