Crocodile Feeding

Wales' only Crocodile Feeding Experience

You'll enter 'Fort Crox' and get up close and personal with our Caimen Crocodile friends, where you can safely feed them their favourite foods.

Nothing will prepare you for seeing these magnificent animals up close, but you'll be welcomed by an expert Crocodile Keeper who will give you a full briefing. You'll also have the chance to learn about the species and ask any questions you like. All this before you climb abooard our feeding bridge, where the crocodiles propel themselves from the water to take their feed from you. 

Cost of the experience is £50 for one person, or £75 for two, and includes entry to Plantasia.

Experiences are available Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Booking in advance is advisable as opportunities are very limited.

To feed safely, participants must be aged 11+, and height to chest no less than 1.1m. Participants must also be healthy with no conditions that would inhibit feeding safely. Note that crocodiles may be fed fish, rodents or chicks. Please ensure to let us know if you have allergies to these items, or to the disposable gloves.

Book your once-in-a-lifetime opportunity now.
