You will not believe the place that I found, think fishing and think crocodiles, those 2 usually don’t go together but I was quite surprised at what I discovered in the beautiful town of Franschoek! I was looking for some fishing spots in the area, and Le Bonheur Reptile Adventures popped up. The name had me confused as I am sure you are too at this point. Who would have imagined that you can go fishing at a crocodile farm?
They have a dam that does not have a shortage of Bass and Tilapia which made the fisherman in me quite happy, and luckily there are no crocs close to the fishing area! They have guides to help improve your fishing skills and you can even cast your line from one of the jetties or a rowboat.
By now you are wondering where the crocodiles fit in the picture? Le Bonheur Reptile Adventures has a variety of options to admire their congregation of crocodiles from quite a close range. These include pond tours and crocodile cage diving.
Crocodile Pond Tours
An expert guide will show you around the more than 200 crocodiles at the crocodile farm, and these range from hatching crocodiles to full grown adult crocodiles. Best of all, they have an underwater glass viewing point where visitors to the crocodile farm can admire these powerful animals.
Crocodile Cage Diving and Night Cage Diving
Do you consider yourself brave and want to tick an extraordinary experience from your bucket list, then this one is for you! One of their experienced guides will spend 20 minutes with you in a cage in the watery habitat of the crocodile while the night time cage diving is during the crocodiles’ feeding times.
Snake Exhibition and Shows
Any reptile lover or admirer will enjoy the snake exhibition and shows on offer. The exhibition features a large collection of indigenous and exotic snakes. Visitors are also usually amazed when they get the opportunity to touch one of the snakes under the guidance of a well-trained guide.
