If you are planning to visit a place where you can waste your energy and time at the cost of your friendship (for spoiling their weekend) then you are at right place.

The ability to get as close up to the crocs and reptiles as you like made my visit here unique and a great experience!

its was a terrible experience to visit this so called park. its more or less a place for torturing animals by ignorance, indolence and disrespect of creatures.

This is really an interactive zoo. Not me; but, members of our party truly got up front and personal with both the alligator and the snakes. Meal time for them is great, though the rabbits and guinea pigs don't like it

Well actually you can get some locales to take you to houses beyond International Airport where people have crocodiles as their pets in houses ( shocking but true ).

The next day we headed for the Reptile park where we were able to play around with the animals. Touch the snakes and feel the texture and enjoy the dances by the traditional dancers.

A place where the animals have been kept. The most exciting for me was the Chimpanzee and the cultural dances at the centre.
