Amazing experience with the most friendly and knowledgeable host! Me and my partner had the most amazing time and absolutely adored all of the animals. So worth the money - a complete steal! Best day ever.

A hidden gem of a place
Jan 2020
We found this place by accident when looking for a place to take our snake obsessed child.

Great place, lots of different reptiles to see and the owner clearly loves them all. We went for the more in depth session, which lasted a good 2 hours. You get to sit and handle all the animals and each of the reptiles is clearly used to it - all very placid.

approach is very good, small slow tortoise to start with, building with bigger and bigger reptiles. Feeding the bearded dragons live meal worms is fun!

we were lucky enough to not only meet Melanie the Burmese python, but also the Iguana (imagine a friendly cocker spaniel that's a reptile). While there are spiders - you don't have to hold them.

Overall a great experience, from a really nice and knowledgeable owner, with all the animals well cared for.

Fairly priced, and something entirely different for the family. Saundersfoot itself is a lovely spot, with plenty of nice cafes and food places. So you can make a whole day out of the visit. Highly recommended, and good that all the visits help this reptile sanctuary keep running.

What an experience... Amazing!
Oct 2019 • Family
Amazing experience.. Took my two grand daughters age 9(not really into reptiles) and 13(absolutely loves them)
On arrival Sunday around 1.15 traveling from Swansea disappointed to find it closed. So rang the phone number on the entrance door. Be with you in ten mins he said. Impressed so far... paid £35 for the 3 of us & £15 adult £10 child for the two hour experience(which was worth every penny) What an incredibly amazing two hours we spent there...Hands on experience with a small Boa, a large Boa, water dragon, bearded dragon and much much more. My eldest grand daughter was in her element and the youngest enjoyed but was a little nervous. You get to feed some of them too. Ian the owner was full of knowledge and funny stories we were completely entertained for the whole time. Two hours flew by. What an amazing experience 100% recommend it.

Very informative & a great experience
Sep 2019
Had a brilliant time this afternoon at the Reptile Experience. Ian is very knowledgeable about his creatures, We met some very friendly iguanas & others and, despite being naturally nervous of snakes, I felt very relaxed with the 2 we were introduced to. I held Will, a small Royal Python & even ended up with Melanie, a Burmese Python, draped around my neck! Her choice, but I wasn't scared :)

Visit with grand-children
Sep 2019 • Family
Visit made with grandchildren on their stay over the half term holiday. To say that avery enjoyable time was had by all of us is an understatement!. Plenty of time was given to each child to have a close look at the reptiles bought out,and if they desired to handle them. Advice on handling and information on the reptiles was provided(patiently) by the very cheerful "keeper" who was happy to share his knowledge on the exhibits.
As a result of this visit our grand children have now convinced their parents to provide them with their own beared dragon and a vivarium.
A visit is highly recommended!

What a fantastic place to visit and have an experience with a wide range of reptiles. We would very much recommend this to everyone of all ages. We had a fab time.
Experts talk you through the different reptiles and you get the chance to have a hands on experience.
Easy to find and is not far from Tenby.

A really amazing and quite different experience tucked away near Saundersfoot Harbour. The 2 hours rushed by as the children were enthralled by each and every creature. Well worth a visit
