The place is well maintained by the staffs and has a high hygienic standard. All the animals are fed, bathed, and taken cared for regularly. The crocodile show, elephant show, and other activities are conducted only after ensuring the animal’s health condition and availability.
Is it scary to watch for children?
No. It is not scary for kids to watch. In fact, they are the most to enjoy the show. As long as they don’t know how strong a crocodile is, they don’t feel scared. And there are large fences at the surroundings, which gives them the confidence to watch the show at ease. But, when the animal comes closer, they start getting scared and grab their parent’s hands immediately.
Is transfer included in the price?
