Set in a tropical rain forest, with exotic palm
trees, fresh springs and local fauna and flora. Securely locked
in enclosures, crocodiles are grouped according to age and specie
from Africa and the neighbouring islands.
first crocodiles: one male and four females, were imported from
Madagascar and their offspring placed in heated indoor nurseries
for one year before they were released into ponds.
La Vanille Crocodile Park also showcases a wide variety
of lizards, snakes, tortoise, monkey, deer, rabbits, bats and wild
pig, with descriptive notes on the fences.
Different insects and colourful butterflies are displayed
in a special room. A guided path in an open enclosure brings you
closer to the giant tortoises in their natural habitat.
Entrance fees apply. Next to the Crocodile Park is the Rochester Falls and further down is Gris Gris.
