My boyfriend and I spent a good part of the afternoon perusing the reptile park. There is a wide variety of reptiles, from snakes to tortoises to lizards to crocodiles (and possibly alligators but I don't quite remember for sure as I was there last May). There are also some spiders and scorpions too! Some of the reptiles were 'on vacation' but there were plenty of creepy crawlies and scaly critters to observe. Also some birds and a wild pig wandering around - cute! The enclosures are big enough for the reptiles and look well kept, and the reptiles appear content and happy. Some more effort could be put into the appearance of the walkways (and maybe gardens etc) to keep the place looking new for visitors. There is plenty of information about each reptile and I learned some interesting things. In fact, the following day in the Kruger National Park, we were able to identify a black mamba slither across the road in front of us, and spot and identify various other reptiles from what we had learned the previous day at the reptile park. It was a bit expensive for us (more expensive than a day in the KNP) but I was glad we went and it was cheaper than most of the other attractions in the area (elephant parks, adventure sports, horserides, monkey parks etc.) some of which are upwards of R500! The staff member we encountered in the park was very friendly and asked if we had any questions about anything. It was a fun and educational afternoon in Hazyview!
