About Zulu Croc Restaurant

The Zulu culture is one of South Africa’s most significant, and has a history that is as fascinating as it is long and deep. This culture is celebrated throughout the county (along with many of the other African cultures), but is particularly significant to the KwaZulu-Natal Province. Hluhluwe is a small town in this province, but is known for its many things to do and see. In fact, it is a veritable tourism hotspot, despite its small size. One of its little gems is the Zulu Croc Restaurant, situated at the reptile park and educational centre of the same name.

Zulu Croc Restaurant offers excellent food with a real local twist, as well as a bar, where an ice-cold beer or an irresistible glass of world-class wine from one of the South African vineyards can be savoured. However, this restaurant is extra special for the features all around it. In addition to the curio shop, where gifts and keepsakes can be bought for those back home, there are daily snake and crocodile shows called Adventure Shows. These are exciting and informative, no matter the age of the visitors, who are encouraged to interact with the animals under the watchful eye of the experienced guide.

Trips to the breeding enclosures of the crocs are also a must. The enclosures have been beautifully landscaped, and these massive creatures are always impressive in their seemingly docile beauty, with astounding power behind it. The Mini Zulu Village is a delight for visitors wanting to get a taste of local culture and customs. For tourist groups or special occasions, Zulu dancers can be arranged ahead of time, but advance notice is essential.

The snakes here include the puff adder, boomslang, Gaboon viper, Burmese python, black mamba, reticulated python, black-necked spitting cobra, forest cobra, and the mighty boa constrictor.

Hluhluwe locals, as well as visitors from all over the world, frequent Zulu Croc Restaurant for its outstanding quality and the element of adventure that surrounds it.

Hluhluwe itself offers visitors much to see and do. Visit the pineapple and sugar cane farms, or see the acclaimed iSimangaliso Wetland Park and Hluhluwe–Imfolozi Park for some of the country’s most wonderful game and birding experiences.
