The place is situated on the East Coast Road, just short of Mahabalipuram and takes about an hour from Chennai if traffic is light. There is parking (paid) outside the venue. The entry fee is reasonable. The place is not very large and can be covered on foot without getting exhausted. There are information boards everywhere and we found young volunteers (mostly college students) eager to answer questions. There are hundreds of crocodiles of various types and also a special enclosure for snakes where venom-extraction is demonstrated. An unexpected bonus was the large number of birds nesting on the trees above.
A small canteen provides snacks and good quality tea and coffee.
A good place for children and adults alike.
The only minus factor was the quality of the toilets.
