A sad / terrible / inhumane experience with these poor crocodiles
Apr 2021
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!

A bit dated

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.

Lovely outing with kids

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.

Interesting

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

Disappointing

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

A must if you have kids!
Jan 2020 • Family
The walk itself is lovely. The kids live the dinosaurs and the views. They also have live crocodiles.

The views are stunning and the backdrops make for perfect family photo opportunities.
