Croc City Crocodile Farm, Johannesburg

Croc City in Fourways, northern Johannesburg comprises a crocodile breeding farm with over 800 crocodiles, crocodile exhibits, a crocodile hatchery (where you can hold a hatchling), visit the shop selling crocodile meat, crocodile skin products and other croc souvenirs – including crocodile oil lotion!

Croc City Crocodile & Reptile Park is fast becoming one of the most exciting attractions in South Africa, where visitors can zip-line above a crocodile enclosure, take part in thrilling activities such as holding a baby crocodile, touching exotic snakes and getting up close and personal with a tarantula!

In addition to all things croc, there is a boma with daily Zulu drum and dance shows – offering an authentic experience of the not-quite-lost tribal heritage of this part of South Africa.

An attraction with a big bite, a big beat…and a requisite tea garden for refreshments.

Croc City is open 7 days a week from 9am to 4.30pm. Website.

Address: Corner of Cedar Road & R114 Nietgedacht 535, Chartwell. (083) 321 1016 or  (083) 657 7561.
