Very exciting experience. Not that much to do but parents need to ensure that they watch their kids very carefully because I did find it very low down. The snakes however were very exciting to see and educational.

I liked the visit to the farm, we were lucky to be there on a day that they fed the crocodiles and had a very informative guide. We got to know snakes and crocodiles better and even held baby crocs.
