This attraction was a big disappointment. Our guide, Paula, appeared bored and provided very little information. She also expected a tip! The crocodiles were plentiful but feeding them was a 2 minute wonder. I see from other reviews that there were ostriches and a boat ride but Paula obviously couldn't be bothered to show us. Wouldn't recommend this to anyone but if you do decide to go - cover yourself with ant mosquito lotion!

The entrance fee was quite steep at 650 kenyan shillings.In my opinion not worth the money and everyone you spoke to expected a tip. Big Daddy who is fed only weekly wasn't,t interested in his food on this particular Friday. I have mobility problems and found it quite challenging.

This place is run down and the crocodiles are kept in quite cramped conditions which are basically concrete pools. It is just a 2nd rate zoo.

It is advisable to visit only if you have an interest in crocodiles, ostriches, tortoise because there is nothing more. For kids they would enjoy the boat rides and great food at the restaurant.
