A lovely place to see crocodiles, tortoises, ostriches. You can get to handle a baby croc - quite safely🙂. It's a good place to relax after seeing the animals, they have a snack restaurant near the lake

Great place for an afternoon outing. See the crocs (and see their feeding on Sundays) hold the tortoises and then head to the restaurant for some great food overlooking the lake. Loved the lake and the boat ride too. Has a playground section for kids, fees apply depending on the specific attraction; does not have a day pass.

Park for crocodiles and ostrich, 10 USD per person They only have three ostriches A lot of crocodiles adults and young to watch and some turtles. Feeding is not allowed. The best thing about the park is the person who guides the groups and giving information about these animals

Can skip. Not all that great. More or less a crocodile farm like the one in Bahir Dhar Ethiopia...few crocs here. See them, eaten them...nothing special. Saw many kids enjoying touching them. Food is over priced and of poor quality

This is a very nice place for an outing. You come very close with the wild. You will have a chance to touch little crocodiles. Its very amazing especially during the feeding times. Its a place that creates alot of lifetime memories.

Remembered visiting this a long time ago when I was little and took my family back to it. It hasn't been updated for decades and is in poor condition.
