Sure it's a "zoo", but where else can you see (and handle some) snakes, lizards, crocodiles and others creatures. Its pretty great really - kids love it.

Despite (or because of) being afraid of snakes, we visited the park and that was really interesting to learn more about them. The staff was helpful and answered all our questions.
A good moment!

I wanted to see their mambas and wasn't disappointed, some must have measured 2+ metres. The animals are well cared for and the facility is very clean and wellkept

I learned so much about reptiles from this experience. The presenter was so fantastic, and knowledgable about all the animals. It was very inspiring. I am less afraid of snakes and spiders since being there, from what I have learned about them.

Was fun to go to and was able to see all the snakes I wanted to see. Puff Adder, Boomslang, Green and Black Mambas and so many more. There were also some spiders, crocs, gators and frogs. It is worth a visit.
