We had a tour of the crocodile farm and we learned a few things along the way. I think if there was a bigger I think the tour would have been longer.

This is a great experience close to Cape Town. The crocodile tour and interaction was well presented by an experienced host. Would love to visit when the croc diving experience opens in September. We also visited the snake exhibition. Good facilities, restaurant and shop.
