The place it’s self is lovely, it’s not far from Witney. There are a lot of different animals to see obviously mostly crocodiles it’s just a shame that it only takes max 45 minutes to get around. But it’s a good 45 minutes and very interesting. When we went the staff were very rude and not helpful at all. This is a good place to go for an hour and then go catch some lunch somewhere else as a day trip

I took my 4 and 10 year old boys and they thoroughly loved this place, the well thought out viewing areas allowed for all ages to be able to see and the staff were all very helpful and pleasant. It probably only lasted an hour in total, but we didn't eat here. The play area outside is lovely and would make a great place to have lunch.

I enjoyed crocodile of the world but it wasn't very big. We had travelled over an hour to get there and only took a 1-2 hours to go round and that included eating at the very small cafe.
I did enjoy it but they need to make the park bigger, it was a lot smaller than I expected.

So it was a rainy bank holiday Monday and 8 of us needed somewhere to go. We ranged from 6 to 50.

A few of us had visited before and recommended it. We all had a great time. It was very busy as local wildlife park was closed for the day so everyone headed to Crocodiles of the World. The layout was excellent, the enclosures good, especially the Nile crocs. The talks were very informative and the feedings pretty exciting. We happily spent 3 hours looking round.

All the staff were helpful and knew their stuff. We would highly recommend a visit, especially for young kids, they loved it. e all got to hold a baby croc and got some great photos.

Great Visit.

I do not recommend. Most of the exhibits didn't move, we wondered if they were stuffed. Some exhibits are difficult to see for small children or those in a wheelchair. Largest crocodile not viewable with wheelchair. Space was cramped for both crocs and visitors.
Best bit was the Tamarins except they are primates not crocodilians.
Café cramped and expensive, coffee very bitter. Jacket potato and cheese, £5.25: small potato and tasteless cheese and a bit of salad I did not want. Cutlery handles down, so already touched by others. Car park scruffy and muddy in wet weather. Cannot understand why anyone might give it 5*. Did not manage to see any of the feeding/special events: no space when we got there. Enjoyed the sign asking you not to leave snack size children behind. Mostly a Big thumbs down.
