Located near the coastal town of Scottburgh on the South Coast of KwaZulu Natal, Crocworld offers an idea opportunity for anyone with an interest in reptiles or birds.
The main focus of the centre initially was to farm with the Nile Crocodile for the meat and skin trade, subsequently the tourism aspect of the business grew. In 2009 the company stopped farming with the Nile Crocodile and has become solely focused on Tourism, Education and most recently various Conservation efforts like establishing a small nature conservancy next to the park.
The centre is now best described as a reptile and bird park with a botanical feel and a strong focus on adding value to our customers experiences through interaction with the natural surroundings and rare animal interaction opportunities.
We are home to a wide variety of reptile species which includes snakes, lizards tortoises and most famously crocodiles after which our centre is aptly named.
