Pucker up to a baby snout sharp with cute deception. Baby jaws of baby crocodiles are on offer for a first date kiss without any obligatory baby talk - pretty friendly for a reptile capable of more than a love bite. An optional swim with diminutive crocodiles in the snorkelling pool displays a superlative encounter with this powerful predator that as adults will be able to devour any life form on the waters edge.
Touch the rough scaly hide that creates a pebble effect on these apex predators which contributed to it's Greek etymology Crocodylus; 'kroko' meaning pebble, 'deilos' meaning worm or man. These 'pebbled worm men' creatures get their first crack at life breaking themselves out of their shells at birth with their egg tooth and continue on to pursue a career as impressive photo companions with a full grown smile of sixty odd cone shaped bone crushers. 'Crocodile whisperer' Mr. Vernon Diggins, will expose the magnificent qualities of these misunderstood monsters on a personal tour that will get you as close to these beasts as the spur-winged plover that pecks the meat from between their teeth.
Clamp your own jaws around the culinary creations served at the tea garden which include crocodile steak, traditional South African braai's (barbecues) and potjiekos (pot food) delicacies. The natural setting of this crocodile education gives an authentic environment to the fascinating life of an animal that fuelled legends; formed the Egyptian God, Sobek; and showcased Hollywood with 'Crocodile Dundee' entertainment. Enclosures of emu, ostrich and bunny's are also open for exploration as is the kiddies play park.
