Great experience, especially for the younger ones. Try to do the feeding time tour. Curio shop has some nice momentos, although somewhat expensive

“Best place in Suncity!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

The good thing about Sun city is the free pick up and drop on call.. This place is close to main entrance and it is well worth the visit! You can indeed see the crocodiles in all sizes here... The small ones slowly moving in water is a delight to watch! They rarely move but the sight of it and the number is quite chilling and scary!

“Worth a visit, scary/cool!!”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

On our honeymoon to SA, we met a friend who lived near Sun City and she took us here...super cool and very scary walking on the bridges and over those huge beasts! You can hold a baby croc at the end (so cute!) and they have refreshments to buy.

My *only* bad comment is that when you see them being fed (amazing and creepy, btw!), the workers hit them on the head with these sticks (maybe to simulate a moving/struggling animal that would be its prey? Maybe so they know who is in charge?) and I felt a little bad for the crocs.

But well worth it, glad we went!

“Great experience and close encounters with crocodiles.”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this Crocodile Farm and found it to be very interesting and informative.
The farm itself was in a good condition. The guides were professional, efficient and very entertaining with their good sense of humor while presenting the crocodile show. The farm created a feel of natural environment where one could observe the crocodiles and other animals safely from a distance. All animals we observed appeared in a good and healthy condition. We were shown a crocodile which is believed to be the biggest crocodile in captivity.
I even tried a crocodile burger at their restaurant which I found rather tasty, although different to the normal ones!

“Wow!”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

More than six hundreds crocodiles in a sanctuary. At 4:30 PM you can watch the "dinner time" of crocodiles.
