Great place to visit to learn about the crocodile and the industry in South Africa. You can witness feeding on certain days as well as hatching of babies. You also get the opportunity to hold newly hatched crocodiles. Highly recommended.

You can see these crocs knows they get food twice a week...we were there while they were fed and some of them didn’t even make a attempt to get some. They are so fat!! The kids enjoy it and the snake display is good!

I enjoyed the open area and the Crocodiles, as you never get to see one in the wild. It was nice and clean.
