In 1986 a dream was realised when new owners purchased this crocodile farm and shifted the emphasis from a crocodile park to a leading conservation and tourist education center. In 2006 the Ranch was again transformed with its biggest project to date. This was the creation of a magnificent center themed on the great rivers of Africa and highlighting a number of endangered species and the plight they face in the wild. This exciting interactive facility also hosts the world’s first crocodile cage-diving experience, designed to give visitors a close-up and personal insight into the lives of these magnificent creatures.

We are a very special zoological facility like no other in Africa! Since inception, we have worked tirelessly to create a place where animals find sanctuary and their care and love are at the highest level. We also believe that with the continued rate of human population expansion and the ongoing destruction of natural habitats, strong action must be taken to ensure the continued survival of species now on the endangered list.

To this end, we as a private facility have put our money and resources where our mouth is, by developing a number of extremely successful breeding programs. We also encourage the public to actively assist in helping to conserve our natural resources in the wild, through our educational tours and our human/animal interactions with our ambassador animals.

Please see 'trip includes' section for further price details

Accommodation:

Accommodation for this trip is in Zindago's Lodge which is directly adjacent to the ranch itself. At the lodge, there is a swimming pool for you to use at your leisure, as well as a BBQ and entertainment area. There are four or five shared bedrooms, each with their own ensuite.
