This was a very cool, fun, interesting place to visit. We were staying in Mo Bay and i was looking for something very close by that had animals and this was just what i was looking for. I was traveling with my daughter and my 20 month old grandson and they both love animals so this place was a big hit with them both. The baby crocodiles were so cute. The bird aviary was fantastic and favourite part for my grandson and daughter. Our tour guide was very friendly and patient and very informative. I would recommend this tour for any animal lovers or families with small children who are looking for shorter excursions and something to do with young children. Not a very long tour, only takes about an hour to go through but there is a restaurant and a picnic area. Was hoping for a gift shop or some place to purchase a souvenier from there but didn't see anything. Not very busy and doesn't seem like a very well known tourist attraction. Should be more promotion and signs and information like a facebook page or contact the local tour companies to help promote more. Very much enjoyed our time there.

This was the last stop of our customized itinerary with Chester’s Tours, and it was definitely a unique experience as we got the opportunity to handle both a snake and a baby crocodile, which made for some cool photo opps. Lots of interesting animals to see, and you will have the opportunity to take plenty of pictures.

Our guide was laid back and informative and I would recommend you check it out even if you don’t know anything about the Bond stuff, as we aren’t fans but still had an enjoyable time.

A must for any Bond fan! We had a tour of the property which included birds, snakes, deer, and of course, crocodiles. A visit to each pen with the finale ends up at the Live and Let Die location of the infamous running over the crocodile scene. Everything apart from the rollback bridge exists along with Katanga's building which was rebuilt after filming. Our guide Donald was present at the time when the scene was filmed.

Would not recommend. It was a 2hr bus ride (not their fault, but this added to our negative experience) for a 30 minute guide, and half of it was just watching a video. They made it seem like we could hold the alligators or interact with the animals. None of that happened. Very run down, small enclosures.

Very run down and dilapidated. The animal enclosures are poor and the range of animals is very small. The James Bond film footage was great. Our guide was very friendly and very informative. But the overall feeling was disappointment because of the poor state of the enclosures

This is a great attraction! I live in Jamaica so whenever family or friends visit I take them there. It is quite run down now due to lack of support, economic conditions and COVID. Regardless, it’s still worth a visit and the tour guides are dedicated and informative and the crocodiles spectacular. It really needs more support and an injection of capital to get it back to its original state.

Got a tour for just 4 of us. Very informative and interesting. Plus showed us the scene where James Bond jumps over crocodiles in Live and Let Die, which husband and son really enjoyed. The place isn't too big, and you'll need under an hour to visit. Don't know why more people don't visit here.

Where do I start? This is a very small zoo which could be so much better. I was expecting something along the lines of Gatorland in Florida, with walkways through the swamps looking at crocodiles in their natural habitats, with a few other natural species on show. it is very far from that - an escorted tour looking at birds and animals in small not very well looked after cages and lots of crocodiles in concrete ponds albeit with more natural swamp surroundings. One young capuchin monkey, gradually destroying its surroundings, two very unhappy raccoons pacing back and forth, one solitary deer, a couple of peccaries, some birds in a cage far too small and the obligatory snake brought out to handle. To be fair none of the animals looked ill but this is so far behind modern zoo thinking as to be out of sight, psychological welfare is as important as physical welfare. The end of the tour is taken up with being shown the place where a James Bond film was made and watching a 30 year old piece of video about its making. I'm sure the staff here care about what they are doing but like anything it needs a huge input of money to make it anything worth visiting, I came away angry and upset,

I recently went to this attraction whilst on holiday in Montego Bay. I have to say i didn't go with high expectations but i was left sadden by the conditions of some of the animals. As we moved on from seeing the crocs to the smaller species we passed several tiny cages each with a very hot, cramped and neglected rabbit inside. The guide went on to say they were food for the other larger animals - this should not mean that they spend their short lives in terrible conditions with little or NO water and no shade.

We then passed a very angry monkey pacing his cage, shouting and pulling at his bars in protest. His cage was not spacious and had nothing inside for his entertainment. In fact not many of the small animal enclosures had anything inside - I am aware there probably isn't any money available for such things but how hard would it be to put some branches/foliage in the cages from the various trees surrounding the premises.

The guide was very informative and friendly but unfortunately this for me was not enough.

I would not return to this place and i certainly wouldn't take young children.

I was very shocked that the animals were in very small cages (especially the rabbits) it was a very hot day and the rabbits were in direct sun with NO shade at all also the tour gide (as nice and informed as she was) felt the need to bang on cages to get the animals to move. I also felt that there were two meany crocs in the same space. Over all left felling sad and sorry for the amimals that would have to spend the rest of their life's there.
