They have lots of Crocs to look at and learn about. Monkeys running around everywhere were fun to watch too. Great place to take kids for a visit that won't take too long and keep them occupied.

I've been several times to this place as part of my yearly visits to St. Lucia, and the last time it was for a music night in the lapa which was excellent. They have plenty of crocodiles in different enclosures, and it's also a conservation...More

Located just outside St. Lucia not many people find their way there. We were there for about 1 hour, and we were the only visitors there. A lot of crocodiles in a fine setting. Many informative posters. Cheap: 60 Rand per person.

Went to the crocodile centre with our family of five, not expecting too much. Place was run down, with a very tired exhibit after the entrance. Dusty, broken displays, faded colors on posters obviously many years old. Some skeletons and skulls, but half hidden in...More

Not even the rain could keep us away from having this experience with our children. From seeing Turpin’s and Alligators to Baby crocodiles and mature ones. You’re able to get very close to them and safely so. It’s incredible to see these creatures as close...More

I was just afraid for children that walked on the deck as it was so windy, I feared a child could be blown into the water. Parents take extra precaution please.

Once we found the place, we spent about an hour being one of three couples walking around the Centre. Down side is that Crocs are not very active, just hang around doing nothing so not especially visual place to visit. Met a worker who gave...More
