Overview

More
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.

Nice to meet Godzilla and the other crocs. The guide was very friendly but hard to understand his Zambian English.

The guide was very knowledgeable, pleasant and friendly and gave us plenty of time even though we were his only customers at the time.

We spent just over an hour at this park (3pm feeding time is well worth it!), and really enjoyed ourselves. Putting aside the fact that the keepers do tend to goad the animals somewhat, there are some huge specimens here, and some very dangerous snakes...More

Great fun for kids of all ages. There are a lot of activities in the area not suitable for younger children, this was a great alternative and very educational.
