Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went to this park during October as part visit to Chimelong Hotel and resort. We got a shuttle bus directly from the hotel to the croc park (journey took about 20-25 mins I guesstimate??) This was a proper coach though with seats and not crowded, compared to the nightmare cowded buses and shoving people used for the transport to the safari park! Actually this coach did stop at the north entrance to the safari park and a few people got off so we would take advantage of that if we visited again:-)

The park was very interactive. We came as two families, each with 3 kids. (aged between 2-8 years old, boys and girls). 2 prams between us.

There really was something for everyone. Within minutes of entering the park there were baby crocs to touch. I was actually amazed at the strength of their tails even at such a small size. There was also a hedgehog to 'stroke'! There were of course some folks who were a little less than gentle with the animals which was upsetting to see but the staff were there and supervising, they kept a close watch on things and in most cases kept physically holding the animal themselves so could have removed them if there was a need to.

The park was nicely laid out and spacious. The animals had a good amount of space. There were LOTS of birds, beautiful birds, HUGE birds. The shows were really well done with groups of different species flying around a route and then brought back with the lure of food:-). It created an awesome sight to see with their huge wingspans. Then a different bird species was set out to join them etc. A few birds went their own way but the staff were quick to entice them back to safety and it looked to my untrained eye like they carried them with professional confidence, care and attention.

There was a show where various snakes, lizards etc were brought out. This was great and wonderful to see the animals close up but I couldn't help but wonder how these poor creatures were coping with being touched by 100 odd people as they brought each one down the line. The kids of course really enjoyed touching them though and had comments about their experience. We were able to add to that with our own comments about care for the animals and their potential fear. (their mouths were all taped closed). That show finished up with the opportunity to hold a python which each of my 3,6 &8 year olds wanted to do. Not getting me close - I stayed behind the camera!

We threw veg chunks to feed a hippo!! Fed swans green leafy veg. Saw a great crocodile show (which several others have reported on so I wont). The croc nursery was excellent as you could see the stages from eggs in one room, to new borns in the next, right through the sizes until the large pools of adults. There was a bridge you could hold meat on a stick from and feed the adult crocs who would jump out of the water to reach!!

There was an excellent playground with lots of equipment and climbing frames etc. We really wished we had allowed more time for this park but it was our last day and we had to catch the ferry back to HK so it was a whistle stop tour for us really.

We felt that it was particularly nice place to go for the adults as it was nicely laid out, with no hills, easy strolling with prams and nicely landscaped beautiful environment. Crucially though, we went on a Sunday and it was not crowded at all (compared with safari parki!!)

If you are going for a long weekend I would recommend doing safari on a weekday (ONLY!! - otherwise it is crazy busy and noisy) and escape to this lovely park for the weekend.

A really nice gem to have found and a great way to end our long weekend - wanting more!

Great for younger kids especially I would say from babies up to about 12+ perhaps, but the adults enjoyed it too!

I visited here on recommendation from a friend who said that the park is home to thousands of crocodiles. I'm not sure if this is true or not, but the appeal for me was in seeing the many different species from the small "Siamese crocodiles," to the "crocodile king." However in haste to ensure that each crocodile can be easily identified, this means that many of them are kept in solitary vivarium, little bigger than my old student bedroom.
Most of the crocodiles have a large open expanse to roam, but I couldn't help but feel sorry for those which were confined to small enclosures. The same was true of the reptile house, with 6-8 turtles sharing a tank I would have deemed barely big enough for one.
Other than these concerns though, the day was still enjoyable. There are many things to see other than crocodiles, including a variety of birds, hippos and tortoises. I viewed some of the shows - wild bird show in particular was good, and the staff were very friendly.
One girl in particularly (whose English name was Helen) gave me a good tour of the nocturnal animals area.
It's worth a visit, but there are better things to do in Guangzhou.
Getting to: Take the metro to Huijiang (line 2) and take exit C. From here you can take the free shuttle bus (at quarter to, and quarter past every hour), take one of the many motor taxis, or walk (about 1.5km), West for about 500m until the first (signposted) turn-off which takes you North. From there, just follow the road.
The price is 90yuan per adult with reduced multi booking tickets available if you want to visit the safari park as well.

It's a amazing place for close encounters with the animals. We got there by taxi but to come back you have to take the shuttle bus only. Please get the show timings flyer on entry. We did the crocodile and pig diving show only. I think the reptile show seemed great but it was earlier than we reached and there was a parade at 3 pm which we din't wait for. We fed the crocodiles , hippos and pelicans. My child could hold an iguana, baby crocodile and baby turtles. We skipped few sections like reptiles and nocturnal animals but were more than satisfied with our 2-3 hour visit.

This place is perfectly designed for family. Not only the numbers of all birds and spices around you but huge play ground, many restaurants and education parts make the Chimelong birds park one of the must for family with kids.

Choose this particular Chimelong attraction because its the cheapest (100 rmb).

Getting there is a bit challenging- not near any metro. I alight at line 3: Hanxi Changlong Station (Chinese: 汉溪长隆站) station and walk to Safari South entrance (approx 1km) or take the shuttle bus. At the Safri South entrance take the shuttle bus to the bird park.

You can also go there via line 2 : Huijiang Station 会江站) but there's isn't any proper bus stop in that area (lots of construction going around too) so I won't recommend it. You can consider alighting at line 2 and follow the crowd to the station when you return back to your hotel.

Shuttle bus timing is about 30 mins apart and usually start at the hour.

I went there last weekend, Sunday around 3pm, there were very less people, quite and peacful environment. Lots of birds in their natural environment voliers, also had crocodile lake, where u can feed the crocs, lot of crocks also in not so nice voliers, with less space, but still u can see them very close, which is nice. 2hr is enough for stroll around the park, its not so big. Nice place to spend time with kids, (also have big playground for them there) as well as have a nice walk with bf/gf. Went there by metro line 2, stop Huijiang, exit B. There will be a small shuttle bus which will take you to park and back for free.

The park is quite big and there is much more to see than crocodiles. Pig diving is amazing and the croc wresling too - and do not miss the waterfowl show where groups of waterfowls are presented and swim/fly into the lake in big groups accompanied by classic music! The park is clean and there are very informative signs. The big croc lake where you can feed the crocs with fresh chicken is hair rising. Dificult to get at taxi using meter when leaving the park.
