About
Situated at 18 1/2 Miles (29KM) Kuching Serian Highway, a 30 minutes leisure drive from Kuching, the capital of Sarawak, Land of Hornbills, Jong's crocodile farm & zoo is the first & largest captive breeding crocodile farm in Malaysia. Set amidst the charming backdrop of tall tropical trees, lush vegetation and local fruit trees, lie this unique farm with over two thousand crocodiles bred in captivity. The farm provides a perfect sanctuary for the reptiles, saving the species from extinction. There are few natural breeding ponds for the crocodiles to mate and multiple. Visitors are able to gaze at the snapping jaws, cold menacing eyes, sharp pointed teeth and powerful lashing tails of the crocs within short distance yet safe because of the metal fence. Apart from crocodiles, there are also numerous rare species of birds and animals (for example- monkeys, peacocks, sunbears, bearcats, pheasants, civets, deers, owl, eagle, fish and phyton) found only in the Borneo Island.

I’m writing this review 20 minutes after arriving at Jongs.

Firstly, when you walk in there is a tank full of dead baby crocs that clearly didn’t make it. That was the first impression and when we realised this may not be ethical.

It only took a matter of 2 minutes to declare that it is in fact quite unethical. There’s all these absolutely amazing creatures just locked up in a tiny cage with no comfort whatsoever, laying on concrete ground. Nocturnal creatures up in the day looking absolutely knackered. Crocodiles that are genuinely bigger and longer than the cages that they are in.

We expected a cool place that preserve, conserve and breed their crocodiles and even rehabilitate them. But it looks like they’ve over bred them and kept them all living on top of eachother. We counted that there were roughly 60 child aged crocodiles in one cage that’s probably about 4x5 metres. And that was just 1 cage!

We came mainly for the prospect of watching these magnificent beasts being fed, but now we extremely regret paying Jongs Farm our money to entertain this inhumane procedure.

Do not come here.

Please do what we didn’t do and research before coming here.

Was 50 RM for foreigners for entrance but in the end it was worth it.
Situated outside city so you need your own car with driver. Nice collection of crocodiles i fact massive variety and some other animals.
Good option while in Kuching

You would assume that it is just a crocodile farm and enclosed zoo, but other than crocodiles, other animals are roaming freely. There's a mix of nature and man-made habitats which I am fond of. I do not like to see the animals locked up far.

I would compare it with river safari in Singapore.

A terrible place, where animals are kept in narrow cages made of concrete, the turtles and crocodiles have just a few inches of water in their ponds which are so small that they can barely move inside them. The animals all look depressed and bored.
The crocodiles’ feeding time is more like a circus where the food is moved away from the animals to force them to jump out of the water to catch it. An appalling display of cruelty towards animals that is best avoided.

My son is a reptile lover and he loves this place. I don’t think there is many places where you can see this many crocodiles. They have some random and sad looking birds, and some goats around but the highlight was the crocodiles. We missed the feeding time but my son enjoyed it nonetheless.

If i could give this a minus review i would. The animal welfare was disgusting. The whole experience left me angry at the utter lack of compassion for life.

Feeding is unexciting. Same ol same ol.
Aripaima feeding is worse. Slim chance to see, only patin fish most 95% of the time. Might as well as call it patin feeding. Food given to attract aripaima is bread, fish food, chicken heads. But i think the aripaima don't come because of perceived over feeding. Also too many patin fish.

Many areas in the farm needs improvement. This is my 4th visit here as part of my job in the last 3 months and i have been visiting Jong since 2006.

The river turtle ponds need a serious makeover. If they can talk, the will speak to you about a tale of woe and depression. Some are quite old and deserve better living habitats.

The petting zoo where the chickens, ducks and baby goats are is unkempt, dirty and depressing.

Where is the cassowary bird? Where are the sun bears? On my last visit, now the wild boar, sus barbatus, has gone missing.

I am glad that there is a petting chance with the goats, not much but still enjoyable.

My reply to those who are negative about a crocodile farm is this : it remains the the best safe place for family entertainment, safe for kids and the elderly. The only way to see actual crocodiles is to go out in the wild, something that is not often viable due to cost, safety and weather conditions.

The nesting ground section seems to be on permanent closure.

Two crocodile feeding pond. The smaller one looks unkempt and it's slightly embarrassing. The ponds are green with algea, there are less crocodiles and they seemed sluggish. The young new staffs who feed them still have a lot to learn about being part of the crowd puller.

Are crocodiles an attraction?!? I agree with previous review that the place might be of interest for children, but not for audits. This is a small zoo with different species. The selection criteria for the animals in the cages are not clear. To spent the time in the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Kuching is much more exciting, even if one may not have the chance to meet the orangutans.

It's a great place to bring mostly toddlers age 3 to 7yrs old, for they can see many animals that were found in tropical Sarawak jungle. Its fun too enjoying the crocodile feeding session. The informational board also very helpful for outside tourist.

This is just abuse. Forcing crocodiles to jump to eat only parts of meat is just cruel. Animals shouldn't be used for entertainment. The last time I went there, i saw visitors spits at the sunbears. Where were the staffs when that happened? Please stop using animals for entertainment but start caring for them. I dont recommend this place so please find other places like semenggoh wildlife centre or matang wildlife centre if you truly love animal.
