This is the worst zoo/animal establishment I've ever had the opportunity to visit in the course of all my travels over the last several years. Such magnificent creatures were kept in the most abismall of conditions. It was obvious that many of the crocodiles had...More

It definitely had many many many crocodiles! Kids were amazed. It seemed to be safe enough. However they had stated that there will be feeding every hour and we did not see any feeding. When asked, they ignored us. The people at the ticket counter...More

I am not an extremist greenpeace fanatic but seeing the otters was simply heartbreaking. They were clearly starved, as I neared their cage they ran up to me, started squeaking and jumped onto the fence. Never seen otters behave in such a desperate and frustrated...More

I thought to see a few crocodiles like 10, but it were between 50-100! It's inappropriate for those species. Living on cement cages, some without any water in it. Others with 20 crocodiles in a cement pool. Some of them are disabled, may because of...More

Just to have a close up on these creatures who has a trademark of being man eaters but unless provoked, they can be quite useless!! The farm also cares for fishes, peacocks and deer’s.

The animals there are kept in really bad conditions, all the cages at too small for them and they are begging for food every time they hear visitors nearby! Just don't go..

After seeing some crocodile farms worldwide we choose to went there as we saw already everything in Sandakan and around. The place is terrible. Animals are in very small concrete cages (they have not only crocodiles). You can buy food for them on-site so they...More

There are a lot of crocodiles to see from small to large. The place is a bit dirty and smelly. Some of the animals are crippled and in a sad state.
