Riverbend Crocodile Farm

A visit to Riverbend Crocodile Farm is a very popular outing on the lower South Coast.  The beautifully landscaped farm is home to hundreds of Nile Crocodiles, snakes, and birds. Enjoy a leisurely stroll through the farm and get to know the beautiful inhabitants. For an added thrill, visitors can view feedings on Sundays at 15:00 and on some Wednesdays during the warmer summer months. The farm offers valuable information on crocodiles and snakes, and their biology. Bring along the whole family for an insightful and comprehensive presentation in the language of your preference:  English, Afrikaans, Zulu or German.
