Our guide was a wealth of information and we walked with him while he feed the croc's. We also got to hold a Croc which makes for... More

Took my friend from the UK and we both loved it! The guide is incredibly informative and willing to take endless photos for that perfect pose ;) great little gift shop with croc products and you get to hold a baby croc for pics too. I'd say an excellent place to take kids!

The Crocodile Creek, situated just outside Ballito, is an amazing experience. You get the opportunity to hold a small crocodile (for picture purposes). The tour guide is very passionate about the reptiles and gives you alot of information regarding the species. You may view them feeding the Crocodiles on specific times. Do make sure to visit the reptile exhibitions which... More

Great experience and Sean is the real Crocodile Dundee. Croc burgers and croc sausage is really tasty.

The tours are very educational and the staff are friendly with a great sense of humour and really enjoy working with the animals. You have the option if you are comfortable and pay extra to get in the enclosure of some of the animals which was a great experience and possibly not able to get this close to Nile Crocodiles...

Absolutely superb experience to kick-off our 2 week South Africa trip. The staff very friendly and the tour guide (I forget his name!) was brilliant. Freedom of being able to spend as much time as you want there is so vital. And the freedom to explore inside the actual enclosures of the crocodiles and alligators was a phenomenal experience. Doubt... More

Really cool place - Over 4,000 crocs, brilliant guide who obviously knew his animals and had a passion for them. Love going to places like this with enthusiastic tours and lots of information about the animals there. Was able to hold a nile crocodile and see a feed. Amazing animals and so much to see, definitely worth a visit guys... More

The place looked a bit run down and the cover charge was a bit high. For the 4 of us cost R250. We went to the Croc farm in St lucia and it was 100% better. Not worth the visit unless you have never seen that kind of thing before.

We were kept very entertained one Tuesday afternoon by Sean, one of their guides, whose knowledge, passion and respect for the animals shone through. An excellent attraction which surpassed our expectations, the only issue being the ride to the place, down some very bumpy and undeveloped roads. They do a lot of work, and to be able to have a...

You can see loads of crocodiles plus some snakes. During the tour you get an opportunity to carry a baby crocodile and a python. Place was nothing spectacular but they are doing a great job. The access road needs to be repaired by the local authorities.
