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.

Visited with the kids on new years day. Lucky for us it was feeding day and a special treat they hatched eggs. This made the visit worthwhile. Crocodiles are by nature "boring" animals, to visit on a non feeding day will be a short visit especially with kids. Try to time the trip for a sunday when they are fed.... More

The visit to the crocodile farm was really good. Interesting facts learned about the crocodile and snake species. The show was well presented by the personnel as they knew what they were talking about and had their facts straight.

We had a great time- the little restaurant is wonderful and all of the staff and experiences are as well. On certain days they do croc feedings and it is something to see- along with the snake exhibit and oulikste baby crocs! Great time for anyone of any age.

The crocs were pretty cool. But over very quickly....what I didn't like was the snake enclosures....poorly kept and miss identified snakes.the yellow anaconda is labelled as a green anaconda.the banded snouted cobra was labelled as a Mozambique spitting cobra...the puff adder had a dead rat that smelled extremely bad and could see it was in there for a few days...snakes...

Experiencing the magnitude of different species was awful. Seeing these giant reptiles alive , in an enclosed and safe environment was a great moment.

We had a short visit to the farm - really interesting. We could browse on our own as we did not go there during a guided tour. We could watch the crocs lazing in the son - a nice experience to be able to study all the details of this 'always smiling' -creatures. A thumbs-up for this one.

A very nice relaxing visit with guided explanations. We visited on a Sunday so we got to experience the crocs being fed. We were also lucky that a lot of eggs were hatching and we got to hold the new born baby crocs.

Crocodile attraction together with friendly staff, art gallery and best selection of wines on the south coast make this worth a visit.
