THE AFRICAN CROCODILE EXPERIENCE
Don’t worry too much though, we have a sturdy and strong first in the world stainless steel net between you and our fast and friendly crocodiles! (Or as the Latin’s would say, Crocodylus Niloticus)
Be part of this exhilarating experience where man and crocodile collide in a natural and safe swimming environment. We at Afrikanos do not stick you in a cage, but allow you to “free” dive with our crocs, while they are safely being kept on their side of the pool. Afrikanos is situated within the beautiful lush Birkenhead area just outside the world famous Gansbaai, enriched with natural greenery, fynbos, ocean and history!
We offer a lot for young and old. For those that do not want to get their hair wet, sip a coffee at our viewing deck above the croc pool or pop into our fully stocked curio shop. If you’re running low on fuel, take a stroll up to our fully functional restaurant and bar and enjoy some refreshments. Bring the kids along to encounter our baby crocs and be a pirate on our outdoor sunken ship play park!
