This is about 60 minute drive from Pretoria. The park has a great variety of animals, and snakes. A great day out with the family. Unfortunately it is not wheelchair accessible. The walkways are stone with stairs, but clean. The cages are clean, the animals...More

The lady at the ticket window was RUDE! not good for 1st impressions. The "Snake" picture at the entrance gives an impression that its only a snake park and I was hesitant to give it a go. Well, there are a variety of snakes (not...More

This place is a must visit, although not much for the Snake and Animals but to get access to all Water Sports and Fun Activities connected to this. Dont miss the Ferry Ride which gives you a great view of the Dam.

Very well looked after park. Animals look healthy, space just a bit small. Snake and Seal show was good. Kids enjoyed it.

The enclosure's are either very old or slightly upgraded, very difficult to take nice pictures as the bars are always in the way. Limited information about animals, and not all animals are available as advertised.

Not to big where you walk for hours. Just big enough to enjoy seeing all the animals. Prices should be split into local and international as they charge more than the PTA zoo.

They are teenagers now, but we still love going here. We go to get the heebie jeebies for the snakes and spiders, and watch the seal and snake show. The boat trips are amazing.
