The Mamba Village has beautiful grounds, grassy with tables to eat and relax. Other than that, the restaurant's food is average. Moderate pricing. OK service. The exhibits are poor. The large crocodiles are bunched into a few pens. The guides prod them to get a hiss or them snapping at the stick. The ostriches are only three now. One died.... More

I was interested in seeing the Nile river crocodile and boy, did I see them. The fences are not high at all and the creatures are massive. Peter, my guide, was really well informed and entertaining, and he had fun practicing his Spanish with me. I didn't like the ostrich experience, as I could see the ostriches were really not... More

A nice place, with accesses that need significant improvements, where we can spend part of a morning/afternoon and see thos magnificent reptiles. The garden is nice and in sunny days it is possible to enjoy the place with a baridi kabisa drink.

Out of nearly everything on the menu. Only a few other diners...one table of four left without eating due to the long wait. All in all, would not recommend...was a long ride, terrible traffic, & "iffy" food & service.

We were there for a Sunday outing with expectation that we would have lunch and return. Pathetic is probably the word. Crocks in dirty blue water over crowded. It's was a clear business venture fooling tourists. Badly managed depleted and infested with so called guides who want a big pound of flesh from you to walk around with you and... More

I'm not entirely sure about this place. The crocodiles are kept in quite small ponds of water and were poked with a stick by our guide to show us how they could open their mouth and snap. There is a park area attached where you can picnic and a nice lawned area where you can have tea and cakes.

Sorry this is not for me. It's bad enough that creatures are kept in captivity but to prod and poke them is even worse. Food looked terrible. Kids play area falling to pieces. Shame. This place could be stunning.

Delicious food, but the staff were overwhelmed on a busy Sunday. That said there's plenty to keep the kids occupied and if you want to while away a lazy afternoon, this is the place

It's 10 USD for entry and there are a few small, crowded pens/water holes with various sized crocodiles. I thought this was very cruel :( there were also some tortoises and ostriches to see but that's about it. It was a beautiful area with a nice lake and grassy grounds which might be good to have lunch at, but I... More

There is not a lot to see at this crocodile/ostrich park - there were lots of schoolchildren visiting who were lovely to see - may be worth taking smaller children who can take advance of the playground. We stayed for lunch which was in a gorgeous setting - similar to an English country garden - but was very expensive. If... More
