Agatha Crocodile Ranch is a very clean and well run crocodile farm which offers tours to visitors local and abroad. Their guide is very knowledgeable and the tour well worth while. There is also a curio shop where gifts can be purchased

Don't know that much about crocodiles and how they're supposed to be kept, but my first sight of all these crocs packed into this pool just seemed so wrong. One had a bloody nose as he'd been in a fight so the guide said. The...More

The pre-tour session was informative but the guided tour through the facility wasn't great and the cover charge is a bit much for what you get.

we went there on a rainy day, so could not witness feeding. I expected few crocodiles but there were hundreds of them. I am not sure about cruelty or animal rights there but for city people, its different experience to see those huge things swimming,...More

This is a waste of money, R115 per person, guide talk about 10 minutes, he throw 6 chickens at 250 crocodiles (feeding incl) and then talk politics, while you stand and look at the crocodiles...really.....don't waste your money to visit this place!!!!!!
