Lots to pick from

Great collection, but a little disorganized so you have to spend a lot of time actually figuring things out ... also a bit pricey so bargain hard :)

What a great place for young kids. Our 5 and 8 year old boys were mesmerized by the crocodiles. We hired a guide who explained so much about how they live, mate and hunt. This really brought the visit to life. Strongly recommend a visit, if you have the time.

Must go place. Though not many crocs but the ones to see are nice. Also the Ostrich there are beautiful. Good for children and family.

Even on a hot and humid day this is worth the trip whether alone or with a group. Nice covered outdoor restaurant and well kept grounds.

This place is has multiple species of crocodiles and a guide will help you in identifying differences between these. You will get opportunity to hold younger crocs as long as you want. This centre also has tortoises, camels, Ostriches. One can also go for boating here with friends and family.

When I went here with some friends, I'm pretty sure we had the entire place to ourselves. It looks a bit run down, but we had a great time regardless.

If you charge tourists North American/European prices, deliver appropriate quality, or lose tourist business. Ingredients were poor, presentation barely adequate. Setting was beautiful in the garden.
