    Wonderful natural park with turtles and crocodiles!
    We really enjoyed our visit to this well kept park, with tropical vegetation and lovely atmosphere. One of the main attraction is the park with the turtles where you can walk among them. The kids loved feeding them the special leaves (you can buy them for mru25), it was a special moment. All the crocodiles are also impressive. There are a wide range of species. At 1.30pm you can see the feeding of the baby crocodiles that was very exciting! There are also deer, monkeys. Highly recommended and very reasonable ticket price.

    A must see!
    My wife and I visited after a recommendation from a friend and it was one of the highlights of our holiday. I’m quite passionate about animal welfare and I have to disagree with a comment I’ve just read that states the animals are not well kept. While I’m not a vet, all of the animals appeared well kept and were very active. The tortoises are the highlight. To be able to feed them and walk amongst them is unique. Yes, at first I was unsure about young children being allowed to sit in their backs, however, on our visit most adult males were trying to mate. It’s quite apparent that they can withstand huge weights on their back so small children, being supervised by adults and staff, I think is quite safe. I’d highly recommend a visit.
