Crocworld Conservation Centre exists to connect people to nature and encourage people to embrace it as part of their lifestyle. Besides being able to offer a fun and exciting day out for the whole family we believe we also have a role in furthering knowledge of the environment. School tours are warmly welcomed to Crocworld with a full range of lesson plans, talks, and resources available for educators to use. Similarly our indigenous gardens are being developed to encourage people to introduce ecologically appropriate plants into their gardens at home.Enjoy our park and please join us in our efforts to educate and encourage people to experience the best nature has to offer.

Nicely situated centre. Very well maintained and you see lots of crocs up close (very close). Apart from crocodiles they also have birds and snakes. Only negative: Cages of the larger birds look too small, these bigger birds seem stressed because of this.

We went to CrocWorld via the hotel courtesy coach (30 rand return pp) and it was surprisingly good, much better than we had been led to believe – well worth a half day visit.

We have the oldest Crocodile at Croc World. His name is Henry. He was donated by a farmer and is still going strong. Thee is also lots of snakes and birds to see at Crocworld. You can also visit the restaurant and the curios shop. Great Family outing and HUGE Tourist attraction.

This was a croc farm before the market collapsed. I prefer the conservation aspect. There are a number of pens with crocs and other attractions.
