Reptile Garden is a reptile display park showcasing over 35 species of reptiles. Our aim is educate the public about the fascinating world of reptiles and how best to live with them in nature and in our gardens. Reptile Garden is a fantastic way for both adults and children to not only learn, but view both indigenous and exotic reptiles in a safe, well looked after and aesthetically appealing environment.
For the reptile keeper, we assist current and first time reptile owners with the correct knowledge and support in looking after their pet. We also have a specialist shop that sells reptiles and all related hardware and food supplies.
A great new addition to things to do in Cape Town, Reptile Garden is a wonderful place to make the most of your Stodels experience and turn your day outing into an adventure by introducing yourselves and children to the unknown world of reptiles. Parents can enjoy a good meal at the Stodels restaurant, and attend to some shopping for the garden, while the kids enjoy activities at the play park, train rides, petting zoo, pet shop and Reptile Garden.
With most of the popular reptiles we are likely to encounter and find so fascinating, such as the Puff Adder, Cape Cobra, Black and Green Mamba and the docile Boomslang. In addition some exotic snakes such as Rattle snake, Tree Viper, Gaboon Viper and exotic pythons, Ball Pythons, a popular pet and a very rare Madagascan Ground Boa, as well as the oh-so adorable chameleons and geckos.
You can also show off by having a picture taken with a reptile and meet our local star and mascot, the Rock Monitor, Draco.
All our specimens are captive bred and housed with meticulous attention to their good health, hygiene and comfort. Our pets enjoy an air conditioned environment that circulates through the cages, in addition to each cage having its own temperature control.
Outbound shows can be arranged well in advance for schools, birthday parties and other special occasions. We have public reptile shows at Reptile Garden on weekends at 12pm included in entrance fee. Our shows are fun and factual covering some of Africa's deadliest snakes. Visitors are able to interact with the harmless reptiles.
