“Great tour guide”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

We visited crocodile creek this morning. The girls were a little concerned when driving the last 5 clicks as the roads were very rustic and looked like we were heading down the wrong roads. But with regular signs for croc creek and the back up of the sat nav they became a little happier. When we arrived we attended one of the tours which was very funny and very informative. It was great to be able to hold a 4 month old alligator

We would totally recommend visiting especially at just 375 rand for five adults.

“Reptile heaven”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

A great place to learn about crocodiles and alligators. Pity they are raised for the handbag and belt industry. They also have a small selection of venomous snakes.

“Very informative and good fun for kids”
Reviewed September 26, 2012 via mobile

The venue is rustic which adds to its charm, the guide is very informative and takes the time to explain and entertain. Even the adults enjoyed it especially the opportunity to touch the baby crocs and hatch eggs. The chance to taste a croc meat is something to be remembered....it's not everyone who can say they have eaten crocodile. There are many crocs to see with their characters vividly explained by our guide. Take your time and make a day of it, we have been here a few times and always enjoy it.

“Entertaining”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

My husband daughter and I visited Crocodile Creek during our most recent holiday to Ballito. We had read reviews of the trip on the dirt road to the venue which gave the impression of being a little daunting, but we found it to be much quicker than anticipated, and not a hindrance at all. The venue is "rustic", but the tour guide was excellent and very entertaining (and fearless). I have been to other Croc venues, but I have never seen the guides jump into the Croc pits and interact with the Crocs as our guide did. I held my breath on a few occasions as he cajoled the Crocs into entertaing us with snapping jaws and other Croc antics. Our guide even rolled up his pants and climbed into the alligator pond to entice a female alligator out of the water to entertain us. There is also the opportunity to feel and hold juvenile Crocs - a big hit with the kids! Well worth the visit.
