Get up close and personal with Africa’s apex predator!
All our prehistoric gems were born in captivity in the Western Cape at a Crocodile breeding farm! We boast 5 of the largest Nile crocodiles in South Africa! We work hand in hand with Cape Nature to ensure a perfect living space for our animals and our dedicated crocodile veterinarian keeps them healthy and happy with regular checks. You will share a completely natural pond with our Crocodiles, we run an eco-pool filtration system with no chemicals added to our pond. We also have a few indigenous fish species in the pond who keeps our Crocs company.
