Encounter with Crocs

Postby Wazted » Fri Aug 23, 2013 11:45 am

Hey guys

Does anyone know if there is a place in KZN that one can go to for crocodile interaction? Not just seeing or live feeding but getting close up even if its just baby crocs. The only place I know of is croc world and I don't think they do any of that. Thanks a lot for your time.

If you go to Croc world you can speak to one of our members there called Daneel Fuchs. If you offer to sign an indemnity I am sure he will help you. Call him on 0828556344 and ask him when it would suit them. This would obviously not be a regular thing for anybody so explain your interest etc to him and I am sure he will help where he can.

If you come to us we are at Crocodile Creek. You can sign the indemnity form and sit on an adult alligator or you can do our Croc Creek challenge you receive a certificate stating that you caught a 4year old croc as well as held a big python, ate a crocodile burger and sat on or picked up an adult alligator and lastly invaded the territory of 85 adult crocs between 3 meters and 5 meters long. Great fun. You can call me at 0828556344 Daneel or Peter the owner at 0829200730.

Okay sorry I got the name wrong. Now more interaction with a crocodile you cannot really want to do.
