Get up close and personal with some of South Africa and the worlds most venomous snakes! Large constrictors, lizards, tortoises, spiders, frogs and crocodilians on display, all set amongst lush tropical gardens. A great outing for everyone, combining education and information with fun - don't miss our incredibly informative demonstrations at 11 and 3 daily, and crocodile feeding on Sundays at 2 (seasonal and weather dependent. We are so lucky to be situated centrally, with restaurants (including Spur, Kuka and Topoplinos) and a kiddies playground all within the same centre, Skyway trails right next door, and two Elephant Sanctuaries within 10km! We are also in easy reach of Sudwala Caves and the Panorama Route, and partner with Induna Adventures, Sudwala Caves, Mafunyane water park and Chimp Eden to offer you great discounts.

Very good collection of reptiles, snakes, and spiders. It was really interesting to learn more about the different species. Unfortunately it was an unguided tour and we had a lot of questions and nobody nearby who could answer them. Prices are a little high for an unguided tour. But I can still recommend a visit as it is really very... More

My little ones just love the snake park. Animals are really looked after. Easy to get around even for small kiddies. Our favourite place to go in Hazyview.

Nice place. U can see many types of snakes, crocodiles, lizzards. They usually make shows exhibiting the animals. It's a beautiful place to spend the afternoon with your kidds, and get to know these animals.

The guide who gave the presentation on the snakes was so much fun and entertaining. I thorough enjoyed his interesting presentation on the snakes. The park itself is actually very clean and well kept. It also seems to be quite tranquil. Overall I was surprised owing to its location.

Anyone that knows me, knows I'm not one for creepy crawlies or the non-legged variety (read snakes) but to walk around and learn so much of the things I fear most was very enlightening and with Morris as your presenter in the snake show, you will leave there just as I did, a bit of a better understanding of our...

Although small, this Reptile Park offers many creepy-crawlies to view and learn about - guide was very informative and interesting. Situated right next to restaurants and specialised shopping and thus a good daytime stop-over. Plenty of parking (in shade) and adequate security.

A great outing for the whole family! Jason is passionate about his reptiles, and offers a daily snake demonstration at 11h00 and 15h00. On Sundays they feed the crocodiles. At perry's Bridge - there is also an info office in the centre where you can book all your activities!

Nice clean park and friendly staff, my 2yr old enjoyed it. Nice location to Sabie River Sun Resort and lots of restaurants to have lunch at.

It's nice if you really need something to do and don't mind the cost. We didn't stay for the show so I can't comment on that. We got through the whole place in less than an hour.

I read the review on this spot and decided to give it a go. It was 2-ish. There's no one become the guide, our kids were left wandering; saw crocs and bit of one or two snakes, and that's it. It's not as expected.
