It is a great area to visit and stay in and is the location of many well-known attractions. You’ll find snakes of all shapes and sizes at this refuge in The Crags, including pythons, boomslangs, and tarantulas. These, of course, are contained inside secure areas. However, the trip offers opportunities to interact with snakes, allowing you to feel the cold silkiness of our finely marked skin.

Interacting with Snakes

The enormous python chamber is self-explanatory, allowing guests to get up and personalize with these beautiful snakes. The enclosure for the monitor lizard will acquaint you with a fantastic reptile that looks like a dinosaur and is delightful to interact with in person. There is a one-hour guided tour for those who want to get up, and personal with the snakes or are afraid of going too near.
