The dinosaur exhibits were nothing to write home about. The experience was rather boring as nothing about the dinosaurs stood out, they could really use a bit of an upgrade. My main issue was with the live crocs they have. These poor animals are being kept in absolutely abysmal conditions, the ponds are tiny, the enclosures dirty and cluttered, there is no running water for the animals nor do they seem to have any place to go for shelter if needed and the enclosures are far, far too small. If there is not enough space or the maintenance is too much then these animals should not be kept here. These conditions are unacceptable for any living creature. For the sake of these animals I sincerely hope that changes are made to better their lives or that they are rehomed to a place where they will get the attention they deserve.

This was a terrible experience! The 3 crocodiles are kept in inhumane captivity / enslavement!!. The enclosures are not bigger than my bedroom. I will not recommend anybody to visit this Park! Shame on the Management! Apparently the oldest croc, Greta, has been living in those conditions now since 1991! That means 30 years!!! Plans have apparently been in place for many years now to upgrade but nothing has been done! I have emailed management and I have all the above info on file!

This dinosaur park is a bit dated. The dinosaurs are tired looking. The entrance says there are crocodiles there too, but there are only 2 or 3 crocs there. Not very exciting. You can walk the entire park in about 15 mins. The kids loved it though and enjoyed taking pictures and posing with the dinosaurs.

We had a great time here with our kids (all under 5). And it made for some awesome photos! It worked well to combine it with the cave.

The crocodile enclosure water not running and water smell. This is horrific conditions to keep crocodiles in captivity. Did log my concern.

There were plenty of variety in the dinosaurs and good picture locations. A bit expensive though in my opinion.

Thankfully we were staying at Sudwala Lodge so the park was not out of our way. So much potential, but so run down. It could be cleaned up with minimal effort
