We were given a very informative guided tour as a family along with one other couple. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour takes around an hour, and there is then a small play area and a small shop. My wife and daughter were both a bit nervous of snakes before this, but found out that they are... More

the snake sanctuary was a great day out, informative, entertaining and very comprehensive. our guide Prince Albert was very good, and he was able to keep the kids' attention with him during the entire tour. Afterwards they accommodated us to have our picknick in their play area, which is wonderful too!

Really lovely afternoon spent here, tour was an hour long but our guide Albert took lots of time to explain about the different types of snakes and answered any questions we had, so our tour was nearly 2 hours long, which was great, we held a few different types of snakes and the whole visit was excellent!

What an amazing Snake Sanctuary with a wide range of different snake species. And our guide was amazing, he moved so freely and fearlessly around the snakes and was super knowledgeable. We learned a lot about the snakes in the area and in other areas in South Africa and out. One of us even got over our fears of touching... More

This visit was a very informative, interactive visit. The guide was so knowledgeable and loving with all of his snakes. Holding a boa constrictor was a little frightening at first but an amazing experience.
