Get up close and personal with some of South Africa and the worlds most venomous snakes! Large constrictors, lizards, tortoises, spiders, frogs and crocodilians on display, all set amongst lush tropical gardens. A great outing for everyone, combining education and information with fun - don't miss our incredibly informative demonstrations at 11 and 3 daily, and crocodile feeding on Sundays at 2 (seasonal and weather dependent. We are so lucky to be situated centrally, with restaurants (including Spur, Kuka and Topoplinos) and a kiddies playground all within the same centre, Skyway trails right next door, and two Elephant Sanctuaries within 10km! We are also in easy reach of Sudwala Caves and the Panorama Route, and partner with Induna Adventures, Sudwala Caves, Mafunyane water park and Chimp Eden to offer you great discounts.

This is worth the stop to see very interesting snakes and other reptiles. The talk was also very interesting especially as you get to touch a python snake. You also get to pass around a rattle snakes shredded tail and some snake teeth.

We enjoyed a most informative visit to this Reptile Park. The guide who presented and exhibited a menagerie of exotic and poisonous snakes to our group was passionate, engaging and approachable yet maintained a professional distance that ensured we were all fully aware that the snakes on show were dangerous albeit for a specific reason. He guided us through a... More

Pretty pricey for an hour walk about. R120 per adult and R70 per child makes it an expensive hour. Kids enjoy the walk tho.

Carolyn B, Manager at Perry's Bridge Reptile Park, responded to this review

Sorry that you felt it was overpriced. However our price gives you the opportunity at no extra charge (unlike many other venues)to take in a venomous snake demonstration, a constrictor demonstration, tortoise feeding, bearded dragon feeding, and on Sundays, crocodile feeding. There is also a mountain of information available on enclosures and around the park for those that wish to... More

We went in the heat of the day, and were lucky to be the only guests and had the full attention of the guide. Our granddaughter was allowed to touch the snakes - we have a photo of her with a python in her arms ! another highlight was the massive crocodiles lazing in the ponds, and the huge potbellied...

I wasn't too keen on visiting the Reptile Park at first but after my experience I was blown away. There were a lot of reptiles to see with the necessary information attached. My highlight was the demonstration with the Python. Needless to say, it was fun and informative and I was also able to take a few photos with the... More

We visited the Reptile Park with our young so who is quite weary of snakes. He loved the informative talks on venomous snakes and pythons - the guide, Jason was very happy to answer all our questions and provided lots of interesting facts about the exhibits. Would definitely recommend.

We had a morning to spare and the children have an interest in reptiles to this seemed an ideal place to spend a few hours. It was pretty empty when we arrived and entry was relatively expensive compared to similar places in South Aftica. Then after we had paid we asked about the times of the demonstations to be told...
