I was very suprised of the big variety of snakes, although I am not a repltile person it was nice to see the different types. It would be nice though if there is a guide that tell you more.

Thank you very much for your interest. It is not always possible to have a guide available, but do ask for Stretch, Stuart or John in case one of them is nearby.

An interesting visit and meeting with reptiles, otherwise one would not want to meet in other places in real life.Almost all of the snakes in South Africa and Nambia can be seen, very complete collection and plenty of information available

Thank you Alejandra for your visit and we appreciate your comments. We are keenly aware of the fact that we should improve our facilities, and as we are able, we are replacing cages etc. Of course, it all comes down to the cost😨.

A very interesting and educational visit. Have been here twice, enjoyed it both times. Good range of snakes and some tortoises. Lots of good educational information. Saw loads of school groups go through here, so helping the local community too. Enjoyable :)
