Crocworld Conservation Centre exists to connect people to nature and encourage people to embrace it as part of their lifestyle. Besides being able to offer a fun and exciting day out for the whole family we believe we also have a role in furthering knowledge of the environment. School tours are warmly welcomed to Crocworld with a full range of lesson plans, talks, and resources available for educators to use. Similarly our indigenous gardens are being developed to encourage people to introduce ecologically appropriate plants into their gardens at home.Enjoy our park and please join us in our efforts to educate and encourage people to experience the best nature has to offer.

Lovely attraction for kids and adults alike. We got to see the crocs being fed. My son also held a baby croc and python and fed the rabbits and guinea pigs. The gardens are lovely and tranquil with lots of benches to sit in the shade. Love that its focussed on conservation.

Disappointing and slightly expensive to visit. Crocodiles not doing much and hardly interested in eating. Not sure whether this is worth visiting...

What a lovely place. Set on hills above the Indian Ocean with a cooling sea breeze through the native trees it was much better than expected. Crocs, snakes, birds and tranquility. Even the restaurant food was reasonable. And we were made welcome!

A very lovely conservation center with various forms of wildlife. Although you will mostly see the Nile crocodile which can get very big, they also have other types of crocs as well including alligators. If you are lucky, they also do interactions with baby crocs, which is a fantastic experience. You get to hold a baby croc and take a... More

This is a lovely place to take small children for a day outing. There are not many other places similar to this one and it is very educational. There is a lovely restaurant on the premises and a wide range of animals.

Was a very nice family outing. Very peaceful and interesting. Different types of crocodiles and some bird live aswell. Just love Isis the fish eagle who replies when you call his name!!! Kids really enjoyed it, lots of space for them to run around and we even watched the crocodiles being fed.

The centre is well maintained. There are lot of snakes, crocodiles, birds, etc for you to explore. You also can hold a baby crocodile. The African Fish Engle named Isis is a highlight. If you call her name, she will respond to you.

This makes for such a lovely trip especially with kids, we went with my baby brother and 2 other kids, they where all fascinated by all the animals. Croc has a large range of reptiles and birds, and a lovely restaurant overlooking the beach. Tour guides who are well informed but unfortunately we had to take the scenic route as... More
