So glad you had such a nice time. The river is really proving more and more popular, as it gives people a chance to see crocs living naturally ... 5 minutes from the airport! Great for those who do not have a chance to "go...More

This isn’t a bad little trip to do to see crocodiles and other animals in small outdoor enclosures, but nothing exceptional or inspiring. It’s all a little underwhelming. My toddler enjoyed it. The museum is a low point. Very outdated and far too much going...More

Disappointingly small cages for the animals kept in this zoo. Felt like I went back to the 1960s in terms of animal care.More

This was a well organised tour, we did the Zoo tour first then the boat with the jumping crocs, it was well worth it. Also a great variety of animals Tigers, Loins, moneys etc etc.

I'm going to be writing a reveiw. I sent an email also as I was totally gutted at the extreme small enclosures you have in place for all the animals. I see some of the managementa responses to others saying the same thing and you can never answer what's being said other then they r ok and getting close to nature has its challenges, the only challenge I sore was that they couldn't be any further away from nature and a lion sprays his sent to mark his territory not that he really has to worry about that . My apartment is bigger then there enclosure it was awfully sad to see and I can't believe the obvious many people that seem to enjoy there trio there. It's nothing more then a money making farm for what ever purposes you so choose, meat bags etc. How it's legal I don't know. Yes I agree when you say animals smell etc that's fine but really if you can hand on heart disagree that the crocs and lion enclosures r not to small then so be it, but even if you do support this I can almost garantee you can't think it is. I lasted as far as the Lions so 20 min into the zoo I had to leave. I didn't care for the over priced money you charge if it lines urs and who ever else's pockets then that's good for you. I love animals and would love to work with them and am studying animal phycology at uni, but never would I consider such a place. Hope you enjoyed your xmas with ur nice wages from a place that should be closed down. Those animals would be happier not existing.
