Crocodiles Of The World is a zoo mainly featuring crocodiles (you guessed it!). They’re located in Brize Norton, which is about 30 minutes west of Oxford. If you love crocodiles and other animals – then you will definitely like Crocodiles Of The World!
About Crocodiles Of The World:
Crocodiles Of The World was founded in 2011 by Shaun Foggett, who has dedicated his life towards helping out Crocodiles. Ever since then, Crocodiles Of The World have aimed to educate and inspire people about these fascinating animals.
It costs £12.50 for adults, £11 for concessions and £9.50 for children. They are open daily from 10 am – 5 pm with the last entry at 4 pm. You can book online or pay at the door.
There is free parking and disabled access.
There are so many different types of Crocodiles – such as West African Crocodiles, Tomistoma’s, Salt Water Crocodiles and Nile Crocodiles!
Apart from Crocodiles, they also have lots of other animals, such as: Otters, Meerkats, Galapagos Tortoises, Komodo Dragons, monkeys and a big cat (I’m sorry, I can’t remember what type!).
What I Liked:
I loved the fact that you could get up close and personal to all of the animals! It was such a good experience for such a cheap price. I also loved that if it was bad weather, then you would still be able to see the majority of the animals as they are mostly inside.
Additionally, I also liked the fact that you could adopt an animal and take part in an animal experience. These were really reasonably priced also! For instance, you could feed a Galapagos Tortise for only £45, which I was very tempted to do!
I also loved the fact that there were feeds that you could watch every hour or so, which meant you wouldn’t need to wait long. During these feeds, the keepers would talk through what they’re doing and why, whilst talking about the species!
What I Didn’t Like:
There’s not much that I didn’t like about Crocodiles Of The World! Overall, the attraction was a good, educational day out for a reasonable price! However, there were a few things I’d like to make people aware of.
The first thing I wasn’t very keen on was the heat inside the second building, so I’d advise you to not wear warm clothes that you can’t take off! This is no fault of Crocodiles Of The World though, as I totally understand that they need the temperature high for the Crocodiles! I just (stupidly) wasn’t expecting it to be so warm and dressed in jumpers and a thick winter coat – so you can imagine how much I was sweating!
Additionally, I went at a very busy hour (Sunday morning) which meant that there were people everywhere! This is a good thing for the business, and I’m glad that they are making money to help with their projects. So if you’re not really a people person, I’d recommend visiting either on a weekday or afternoon as I heard that’s when it’s the quietest.
Who I Recommend It For:
I would recommend anyone that likes Crocodiles or animal lovers in general! There are plenty of things to do if you have children, such as the playground, gift shop and cafes! It’s even good for adults as it’s educational and interesting to see the animals.
If you’ve ever visited Crocodiles Of The World, what did you think of it? What is the animal you’d most like to see?
