I did not expect much about a zoo, we were 4 adults and we took a guide. This guide show us the gecko, and the snake. First we took the snake around our neck, something we may use too, and the visit of the crocodile had started. You see the baby crocodile, and then the older one. The guide show... More

The Croc Farm and Botanical Gardens gives a flavour of the cou ntry. There is a display of chameleons and frogs in a vivarium, most looked in good condition, then an enclosure with a non-native Chinese pheasant and a sad-looking pair of Fossas. Further outside, we saw open enclosures with a varity of chameleons, lots of planted areas, with, again,... More

Fun to see the Lemurs and feed them; the Chameleons are very cool and the crocodiles are huge. Its such a shame there is not enough funding for the place though and it is a little run down; the reptile house and the various frogs were also cool.

You've never seen that many crocs on one spot. It's a bit scary but quite interesting. I have bever before seen such a concentration of crocs of all sizes. Worth visiting. At the restaurant on the premises you can also taste croc's meat. I didn't so I can'ttell what it is like.

The Croc farm, although outside of the city centre is worth the trip. There are reptiles and lemurs to see as well.

Whilst at first glance a lot of the enclosures seem adequate, when you get a closer look you can see that the animals are far from ok. The chameleons had sucken eyes and poor quality skin, showing typical signs of dehydration. The crocodile enclosure, whilst large, is definitely not big enough. We witnessed a lot of fighting whilst there and... More

Nice place to visit if you have a few hours to spare,close to the airport. They have some free range lemurs, lots of tortoises in different sizes and a lot, a lot of crocodiles. And a restaurant where they serve crocodile meat. it's nice to look around for an hour and half, but that's about it. Not too bad, not... More
