Was disappointed as expecting to see some action with the crocodiles. But the just do not move much, I should have planned it during feeding time as they show how crocs can leap to catch their food.

This is a very small park, so it won't be really needed. Will entail some walk but not like what big national parks have. Casela National Park will need the assistance you are asking about, since that is a big national park
