Absolutely loved it. Around 700 crocodiles live here, some old and some young. The best $2 I ever spent.

Interesting place but not if you object to overcrowded farms. The crocs are packed in tight and look like statues (our guide poked at them with a stick to get a reaction--which he got). We were charged $3 a person. I think I read that they charge more if you come in a tuk tuk versus walking. They guy working there put rubber bands around the mouths of the baby crocs before our kids held them. Our kids enjoyed the experience.

Horrible experience that we said yes to when our tuk tuk driver asked without looking into it first. Cramped conditions for the crocodiles. Feels like you could fall into a crocodile pit at any moment, no safety railing - would definelty not take kids here because of that. Their environment is concrete and water, with so many crocodiles on top of each other. We paid the $3 entry without realising what we were funding, would definitely not go back

Our tour hadnt included the crocodile farm but we were early on time so our driver suggested a stop.Glad he did.We have done farms before so wasnt too excited but really enjoyed the stop.$2US to get in and the lady walked us around and explained what they were doing with them,Gestation,fertility and it was really inetresting. Safety felt a little daunting with no guard rails around where you were walking and some of these guys are REALLY big.Worth the look for the $2 entrance fee

The lady who works here is learning English and I found her informative and lovely, I held some baby crocs and she explained to me that twin crocs are born without tails and therefore do not survive to adulthood as they're unable to swim and thus other crocs will see them as prey. The older crocs live in cramped conditions - albeit they don't move much unless to snap at another or feeding time. They're kept like this for 30-35 years after which they're sold for leather - they are also bred for meat. This is my conundrum, and why I only gave 3*'s, from an animal rights perspective I struggled with this - but then in a country as poor as Cambodia where lots of Cambodian Families live on under $5 a day, and human life sadly doesn't hold that much value I totally understand that animal rights are still low on the agenda and extra land hard to come by. I think its very easy to judge on western standards - the crocs are fed and watered so they're not neglected in that way. The staff obviously care about their welfare as much as they can and therefore all in all its an interesting place.
