About
Dragon Rock Reptile Centre is situated in the heart of the beautiful Drakensberg in Kwazulu Natal. We are a nature and reptile centre. We believe education is the most powerful weapon with which we can change the world around us. That is why we strive to educate people about the animals we have and animals in general. Combining the nature centre with our reptile centre we aim to send people home more aware of their environment.

Firstly, remember to book!
Our guide was a fountain of information with a real passion for the reptiles and animals he introduced to us. From the tarantula spiders to the very sleepy ferrets. The centre is well worth a visit if you are interested in snake, lizards, spiders and anything else in between.

It was good to see a statue of Lord Shiva in the middle of Drakensburg surrounded by mountains. It's free to visit that area. To visit Dragon Rock Reptile and Nature Park, there is fees of 90 ZAR per person but its worth to get experience of various kinds of snacks and crocodile and other scary things. Overall good experience.

The animals belong in a better well kept place. Not in this manner and there hindu god status around the place. It doesnt make sense what this place is.

Very knowledgable guide Corniel. Highlights included the handling of the 3m python, the massive bird eater spider and the geckos, hedgehog, etc. By appointment only.

Awesome experience with a truly knowledgeable guide. It's both entertaining and educational. We loved getting up close and personal with the animals and being a part of the experience in such a beautiful place. Highly recommended.

I have been to a few reptile parks, but this one was honestly the best. The animals say it all. You can see that they are well taken care of and definitely loved. Cornel, is very passionate and knowledgeable about all the animals. I really enjoyed the experience and so did my kiddies.

This was our 3rd visit to the Reptile Centre and it was as awesome as before. Much to the delight of our 8 year son, he was again able to hold the snakes, spiders, a ferret, watch the alligators being fed and finally sit with the Burmese (?) Python - the big one!. The owner showed us around and he is knowledgable, passionate about his animals and enjoys sharing all of this with you. Highly recommended. Limited opening times and prior booking is essential. Group size is limited so book in advance. No children under 5 years.

One of the best collections of snakes and spiders that I have ever seen. People get the chance to hold tarantulas and snakes. Owner has excellent knowledge on all species at the farm and you come away with new respect for these creatures.

Visited in August as a group of 6, the guys were really friendly, informative, and let us handle lots of reptiles and animals during the tour - something you wouldn't get back home in the UK!

Really fun and inspiring day, wonderful to support rescue projects too!
