Crocodiles have long been stereotyped as sly, cranky creatures that are ready to snap at any moment; yet these docile, relaxed reptiles are more concerned about catching a tan on the rocks than having you as a main course. At Le Bonheur Crocodile Farm the highly trained staff will take you on a guided croc tour, showing you a glimpse of the carefree life of a croc. Leading you across open dams via ramp ways surrounded by lush, green vegetation, you will be mesmerised by more than 1 000 crocs that call the dams their home.
