“Well Worth a Stop”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

I take my little guys to the crocodile farm when we travel down the south coast and this is a really great activity and highly educational, even for the adults! The snake show (although not really a show but more of an educational talk) is interesting and the crocs are well-hungry by Sunday afternoon so expect a bit of action. A highlight for the kids is to hold a baby croc at the end of the afternoon.

“A must-see on the KZN South Coast!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

We visit Riverbend every time we go to the South Coast, which is frequently!

There are loads of croc.s of various size/age (obviously!), but there are also other things to do ...... From seeing some of the country's most venomous snakes, to whiling away some time in the art gallery, wine cellar (they have a top class selection for wine lovers) or souvenir shop, or even enjoying a snack or meal in the restaurant. So something for everyone.

Our most memorable visit however, was over Christmas and New Year a few years ago, as this is when the baby crocs hatch - and my son got to hold a little one right after it came out of the egg. Unforgettable.

“A must”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

I am not a huge fan of crocodiles, but this is a must see place, there are crocodiles of all ages and sizes, and they are fascinating to watch, closely, but behind a good wall.
