About
Zulu Croc offers a hour and a half, hands-on crocodile and snake experience, bringing these fascinating creatures up close and personal and allowing you to actually feel and touch some of the world’s most feared reptiles. This awesome interactive encounter will no doubt leave you with many unforgettable images and memories. Visit our “Snake O Zeum” where our guides give daily demonstrations and informative talks on snakes in general. Their infectious enthusiasm is clearly evident and their willingness to share and impart knowledge adds to their popularity. Our guides' professional snake-handling skills are put to the test as they boldly interact with and discuss highly venomous species such as puff adders, cobras and boomslangs, much to the amazement and awe of the visitors. Check out in close detail the snake with the longest fangs in the world, the Gaboon Adder, and see the impressive and defensive hoods of several of the deadly cobra species. Learn about their movements, their venom types and their danger to us, as well as get acquainted with a few of the large colorful and impressive constrictor species. This interaction is further enhanced by the utilization of informative audio and visual technology turning a simple demonstration into a rich, rewarding wildlife experience. Set in safe and tranquil surroundings, the park meanders through cycad lined pathways, leading to a variety of secure, spacious and well maintained crocodile enclosures where the guides are always on hand to answer any questions and offer assistance if needed. Here the Nile crocodile is king and specimens of varying sizes, from hatchlings to behemoths of close to a ton, can be seen. A restaurant with succulent meals, bar, curio shop and clean restroom facilities are also available. At the end of an exciting and exhilarating tour of the park, why not relax at Zulu Croc’s very own “Croc-Tale” Restaurant, where you can sit back and reflect on the day’s activities. Our guides' passion for reptiles goes far beyond the mere capturing of snakes and crocodiles. They are people persons, nature lovers and conservationists, always willing to assist with problem reptiles posing an immediate danger to surrounding workers or inhabitants. They are always quick to react to the many calls they receive on a daily basis. Our guides also work hand in hand with local nature conservation authorities especially when it comes to the removal of rogue or man-eating crocodiles. For an unforgettable experience set in a safe and serene environment, visit Zulu Croc where our team eagerly awaits your arrival.

We had an amazing time at Zulucroc over the Easter weekend.
The guides are very informative and I really enjoyed Zulucroc & Hluhluwe.

Will definitely visit the park again.

No card machines
Apr 2019 • Family
Quite disappointed to drive all the way to the croc farm to be told they only except cash as their card machine are down, we asked to pay eft and were told no only cash and that we must drive all the way back to town to draw money

Then when we asked for a managers number to find out if they cant let us pay via eft
We were told that he does not take calls

Im sorry but as your job as a manager you should always take calls and attend to customers hense the title Manager

Not sure how you can run an establishment like that when you turn people away.

Saddest part is what happens to the poor reptiles if this establishment had to close doors for lack of income.

Hello we are in the 21st century eft and zapper are available, lot safer than dealing with cash.

Croc world review
Dec 2018 • Couples
Well worth a visit that introduces African reptiles - snakes and crocs.

Lawrence is clearly a person who loves his subject and could well lecture to students.

He is very knowledgeable and shows his passion when he talks. Well worth a turn.

Good afternoon show
Oct 2018 • Family
We were staying at Zulu Nyala just 10 minutes away so we went for the 2 pm show. It was fairly small it only takes 15 minutes to walk around but if you stay for the show it’s definitely worth it. My daughter got to hold a snake and we enjoyed watching the crocodiles eat. The guide was very knowledgeable and great at keeping my daughter engaged.

Zulu Croc a suprisingly rewarding stop.
Jul 2018 • Family
Begining with lunch, which included a must have again burger that inspired memories of my childhood, my family and I headed for the 2pm reptile talk and Q & A. An inspiring and informative experience indeed. An obviously learned and passionate speaker quickly connected with all of us with his obviously contagious enthusiasm and passion for the natural world he represents. Thank you Annette for your hospitatlity and Laurance for making our day. May Zulu Croc continue to susprise its visitors.

Zulu croc lecture
Dec 2017 • Couples
This was truly a biological, conservation, history lecture. The guide was very informative, with very good knowledge on his field of education. This is not your normal, everyday snake lecture. Be prepared to be surprised!

So run down and desperate...
Jan 2017 • Family
Went there these past few days with time to kill in Hluhluwe and three kids. This place is desperate, dirty, no proper descriptions, no light in snake area so couldnt see inside. I am sure this place would not be approved for minimum animal care standards. Tours were off due to lack of tourists (zero!).. Grim.
