If crocodiles hold a special place of interest for you, (and who isn’t entranced by these strange, prehistoric beasts?) then a visit to Mamba Village is a must. The largest reptile farm in Kenya, you’ll find pools filled with every variation of croc – from the smallest hatchlings to a 5m (15 ft) long “Big Daddy” beast, who is reputedly 100 years old.
Mamba Village also features a serpentarium with a collection of snakes, a botanical garden and an aquarium. Look for displays of aquatic plants and orchids. And if all that wasn’t enough, the village also offers horseback riding with lessons, and even camel riding! There’s plenty to fill out your visit, from a leisurely stroll through the gardens to an in-depth tour of the world’s most fascinating reptiles.
The tour begins with a video about these fearsome reptiles and their importance in our ecosystems. You’ll hear interesting tidbits about their life span, size, behavior and more. Your guide will continue sharing fun crocodile facts as you tour the farm, viewing all types of crocs, learning about their history, age, length, and even the power of their bite!
A big highlight of every tour is feeding time. Here you’ll witness at close range the primal forces of nature in play. Enticed with large chunks of meat, the giants explode in a fierce battle, fighting for their supper.
You can also enjoy a meal at the village restaurant where you’ll find such specialties on the menu like zebra, ostrich, and of course, crocodile meat.
