Livingstone Reptile Park boasts a collection of Livingstone’s most notorious reptiles. Our crocodiles have been rescued from the Zambezi River where they were posing a danger to both humans and themselves. Gwembe Safaris were asked to capture these animals to prevent any further threat to people or their livestock. Had we not done so they could have been destroyed. Getting close to these animals never ceases to invoke feelings of fascination, respect and fear.

A mid sized reptile park with various snakes and crocodiles available. A guide will take you around and entrance fees are reasonable.

The park doesn't look much and when you start the tour you fret a bit about safety aspects (especially if you live in Australia!). Our guide Gift was a treat! Very knowledgable and very keen to ensure we got the best possible tour. He is Zambia's answer to Steve Irwin! Fantastic gentleman keen to show and share his knowledge! He... More

The reptile park doesn't look much from the outside but jeez do they make it up with the awesome tour. Our reptilian guide Crismon allowed us to interact with the animals safely while giving us tons of information, he answered every single one of our questions with a smile. I really felt like a kid again!(p.s ask to feed the... More

We were charged $16.5 pp for our visit to this little park. You get a guided tour along a couple of basins with big crocs and a rather sad terrarium with about 15 snakes. In 20 minutes we were out again. There is an option to see the crocs getting fed but you will have to pay another $5 per... More

The stars here are the crocs. They have several of these monsters and we had an opportunity to see them being fed. Scary and fascinating being so close to them. There are also a few snakes in glass boxes including the notorious black mamba.

Great to see these reptiles in this sanctuary. A vry impressive collection of crocodiles and snakes. The 80 year old male crocodile and the Gabion adders is a must see. Very informative guide. Keep up the good work.
