Taking a tour of Spencer’s Creek Crocodile Farm at Victoria Falls will give you the opportunity to see some of the biggest crocodiles in Africa, ranging from fully grown adults to babies. Guests will be taken on a guided tour of the crocodile breeding farm, as well as the tannery.
Your journey will begin at your hotel in Victoria Falls town from where you will be picked up for a morning or afternoon departure. Your minibus will make its way to the Nile crocodile farm which is located 5km from the Victoria Falls town center, quite close to the A’Zambezi Hotel.
The crocodile farm grounds are situated along a natural creek nestled among tall, shady trees that provide cool temperatures. Hundreds of crocs are on display, as well as several African animals such as the lion. The lions can often be heard roaring by villagers and guests at nearby hotels, which send shivers down their spines.
Feeding times are notable at the farm as they feature the large crocodiles leaping out of the water to snap at big chunks of meat. The farm also has a curio shop that stocks high quality souvenirs and gift items made of crocodile skin.
Brave guests can enjoy the opportunity of holding a newly hatched baby crocodile, which makes for a great holiday photo memento. You will also learn about the history of the farm, why it was set up, as well as the conservation challenges faced in preserving the wild population of the Nile crocodile in Victoria Falls.
At the end of this tour, your driver will transport you back to your hotel in Victoria Falls town.
