About Mamba Village

       Mamba village means a crocodile village in Swahili. This is a good place to learn all you need to know about crocodiles because it is said to be the biggest crocodile farm in East Africa or perhaps in all of Africa! Home to over 1,000 crocodiles. Visit to watch them lay in the baking heat or take a dip in the water to cool off, or just chill and act dead. Here you can learn about the life cycles of crocodiles. If you have never visited a crocodile farm earlier, then this place is a must visit. An educative place to visit, view and widen your knowledge on the crocodiles. It starts with a small video clip and then the tour starts from the eggs stage to the gradual growth of the crocs to their huge size. There is a feeding programme daily and that's nice to see as the crocs lunge forward to devour the meat given to them by the attendants.... there is also a small restaurant where you can enjoy a cool tusker beer or a soft drink or have croc steak after the tour and relax near the croc pool. The guests can also enjoy other activities in the area such as camel rides, horse rides, boat rides, etc. They also have bumper cars, merry go round, other rides along with the crocodile farm. The crocodile farm has a large number of crocodiles from various sizes and ages. You can even get to hold a baby crocodile. One can even get to hold a snake for a price. So beat the fear and do visit Mamba village for fun.
