We visited on a Sunday deliberately to witness feeding time. The presentation on snakes and crocodiles was brilliant and these people know what they are taking about. The owners knowledge of other local wildlife is astounding. This is a must visit when you are in...More

The wait to the feeding was a bit long. But it was informative and interesting. At least can keep the little people excited and anticipating the holding of the hatchlings. I would recommend it to friends because unlike other places they keep a significant number...More

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.

On our visit we were very disappointed. There were only 3 pens with crocodiles. We basically paid for a walk around a very small area.

Went there for the feeding. Nothing special. The owner does know what he is doing and is knowledgeable. Very small facility and no variety of crocks. Maintenance needs to be done.More
