Crocodiles fed on Sundays at 3pm.

Crocodile attraction together with friendly staff, art gallery and best selection of wines on the south coast make this worth a visit.

Thanks for the positive review notwithstanding that the crocs did'nt eat given the freezing cold weather. Hope to see you again soon. More

It's "ok" I guess. Adults R65, toddlers R35 so not overly expensive. But once you're inside you're left to roam by yourself. No guides and information is limited to a dvd on repeat in a TV room. The place would benefit tremendously from a slightly more interactive and hands-on experience. It's also possible to walk around the entire route in... More

They are busy with some construction so it felt like we couldn't see the whole park. No signs or guides to tell you where you should start and its over very quickly. Does not justify the entry fee but the kids enjoyed the 15 minutes we were there. The art gallery and wine cellar obviously not for the kids...

Thanks for your review Rachelle, Apologies for the construction but it is important that we attend to R&M and hopefully to provide a better experience for visitors. Please feel free to return as complimentary guests when you're next down especially on a Sunday if possible when we have our feeding and snake demonstrations. More

Have you ever experience the feeling of a baby crocodile in your hand. That is what I had this time. Its amassing to see how their staff handled the reptiles.

A must to do whilst on holiday in Ramsgate. Fascinating crocodiles and snakes. Especially watching crocs being fed. Great experience to hold a snake and baby croc! Howard holds his audience "crocodile" captive with interesting and informative talks. Crocodile café serves scrumptious food and waffles too! Love the tourist curio shop, art gallery and wine cellar. Informative tourist office too.... More

Even though we did not visit the crocodile facility, it was an enjoyable facility for a tea/selfmeal

We went during the week and were told our tickets were valid for the Sunday feeding and snake shows. They were very informative and we genuinely enjoyed them. The kids loved the fact that they were allowed a photo op with baby crocs after the shows. I would recommend it for a day out when the weather isn't great for... More

If you like Classical Music you must attend one of their Classical Music evenings held in the Conference Center where international quality performers play in an intimate setting of just about 100 audience. The Concerts are held about 4 times a year and details of dates are available from the Gift Shop at the Crocodile Farm. We have just moved... More
