Wonderful and informative visit

We had a wonderful tour with a very informative guide. He explained to us everything about each and every animal. The place is home to many abandoned pets, it’s really nice to see these guys giving them the best possible life!

Great personal tour, learnt a lot, really great guide.
Aug 2019
We booked the slightly more expensive private tour and had an amazing time. My wife didn't want to come so I just took me and my 2 boys (5 and 8 at the time). The guide started off with showing us some very venomous snakes and explaining how the venom of different snakes worked. He was clearly passionate about reptiles and snakes and loved his job. He had time for all our questions and really made the experience great. We then moved on to lizards where we spent a lot of time stroking an iguana, several other lizards, and even feeding a chameleon by holding food in our mouths! Then it was time to hold a huge python, it weighed more than we could hold. Then a tour round some other sections including snapping turtles and crocodiles. Finally the guide fed a venomous snake a mouse and we watched it eat the mouse. The guide was so kind to me and my kids, we all came away with a much greater love and appreciation of reptiles. In all we were there probably 2.5 hours.

Learnt a lot

What an extraordinary experience to get up close to often misunderstood animals. The staff were knowledgeable and the opportunity to hold a snake and lizards was unforgettable. The animals look as if they are in good condition, which is always good to see.
