Crocodile Farm

Around Victoria Falls, the Zambezi River is home to several Nile Crocodiles. Many people are frightened of these prehistoric animals and sometimes more often than not, you don’t really get to see them up close on a normal cruise.

Thanks to the Victoria Falls Crocodile Farm (formerly Spencers Creek Crocodile Farm) people can now learn more about the crocodiles and get a closer look at them while learning so much about them.

Why was the Crocodile farm established ?

  • Originally it was established in the 1950s in reaction to the dwindling Zambezi crocodile population, which was the target of unrestrained hunting and killing by locals who had a superstitious and fearful attitude toward them.
  • In the wild, this species of crocodile experiences a high rate of mortality. By introducing these crocodiles at three years old, the crocodiles are largely past the susceptible stage, when typically, only about 2% survive.
  • This approach has been successful in maintaining the wild population, giving the owners a valuable source of employment and income, and generating foreign exchange for the nation. Additionally, it is a fantastic tourist destination.
  • They just created a section called the Snake Park, where several kinds of snakes are kept. Additionally, you can include a snapshot of yourself holding one of these in your photo album.

Where is the Victoria Falls Crocodile Farm ?

The crocodile farm is located about 5 kilometres from Victoria Falls downtown area, right next to the A' Zambezi Hotel, and just outside the Zambezi National Park.

The grounds are bordered by large, shady trees and a natural creek, which helps to keep the area cool.

Who can go to the Crocodile farm ?

The crocodile farm is open for everyone and is suitable for families, large groups as well as individuals. There is no age restriction and any other special requirements to visit the farm.

  • If you are on a very tight budget but still want to go on an adventure then the crocodile farm is best for you as it very much affordable.
  • If you love the outdoors and an opportunity to get close to animals then you will love this activity.

How long is the activity ?

This Victoria Falls Activity can take about an hour to one and a half hours but it depends really on how long you want to stay and how fast you are moving from pond to pond and one viewpoint to another.

What Times Can I Go To The Crocodile Farm ?

The Crocodile Farm is open all year round and is accessible throughout the day from 8am to 5pm.

What to Expect ?

  • The Crocodile Farm Tour does not include any transfers to and from your hotel so you would have to look for transport and find your own way to get there.
  • You will pay directly at the point of entry
  • You will get a chance to see numerous crocodiles, from the smallest ones to the oldest crocodiles that they have.
  • You will also see some non-native crocodile species
  • In addition, you can also see other animals like the lion. People living in the adjacent hotels and the hamlet itself frequently hear these lions roaring, which sends shivers down their spines.
  • The snake park was also moved to the Crocodile farm so in addition to the crocodiles and the lions, brace yourself to see some of the world's deadliest snakes and be ready for the thrill of a lifetime.
  • The snakes will be in protective glasses and will not be able to harm you.
  • You will be with a guide throughout who will be taking you to all the viewing points and telling you all you need to know about the animals, including how they feed them and take care of them.
  • At any point, you are allowed to as any questions and take pictures with the animals.
  • It's always important to pay attention to feeding times because enormous crocodiles come out of the water to attack huge chunks of meat. There is also a curio shop where premium Crocodile skin goods are sold.
  • If you're feeling adventurous, try holding a young crocodile for some fun pictures for your holiday photo album.

Why Go There ?

  • It is an excellent opportunity to learn and see crocodiles differently than you would on a cruise.
  • See lions, some of the most-rare animals to see even if you go on a game drive.
  • Also get an opportunity to see the snake park
