“Jumping crocodiles!!!”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Although it may sound weird, I am a big fan of crocodiles, and this place has a lot of them, some of them are really big! We have seen a crocodile that lived there since 1965. The most impressive part is the feeding (it started at 3pm). The guys hang pieces of chicken on the rope and the crocodiles literally jump out from the water to get their food. This is such an amazing view, powerful jaws opening and then (if lucky) swallowing the food! The kids around us really loved the show!!!

“Lots of crocs here, really...”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

I have to say they really have a lot of crocs here, more than I have ever seen elsewhere. The highlight would certainly be the feeding time for the crocs which takes place daily at 11am and 3pm. Overall, it's a good place for a late morning visit and the place is rather big, so you could easily spend 1-2 hours to walk the entire place. On the down side, I felt the place a little rundown and would definitely benefit from a major refit.

“A chopping good time”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

The rocky road leading to the farm doesn't seem promising however the farm itself begs to differ. 100s of crocs are available to see in smaller easy to see cages as well as open spaces where they rest in the sun. The jumping crocs feeding session is the absolute highlight, well worth your time. There are also many other animals to see in an incredibly unique farm.

“Good with horror scene story from the wall”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

I'm not fan with crocodile, but this is the first time I have been in the place full of many crocodiles. Before enter the real crocodile they have the story on the wall about the biggest crocodile was eat human. That picture so real and scare me. Then we go to crocodile show, when they feeding them, so nice when the crocodile even jump. Well it nice to go there.

“Crocodiles!”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

Ook, if you love crocs then this is the place for you! It is around a half hour to forty five minutes drive from Kuching itself. There are plenty of crocodiles here. Highly recommended is the feeding time which is 11am and 3pm where you can see pieces of meat being dangled from a height and the crocs rising up on their tails to snap up the freebies! It's quite a sight!
