Snake Exhibitions & Spotlight on Snakes
Our indoor, self-guided ‘Snakes in Transit’ snake exhibition features an impressive collection of local and exotic snakes. The snakes are housed in roomy enclosures fronted with safety glass. The clearly-signposted snake exhibition includes loads of information about our scaled brethren. On Saturdays and Sundays and public holidays (at 12h10) our experienced snake handler puts on an Interactive showcase of snakes. You’ll learn to appreciate these oft-misunderstood creatures during this interactive show-case. All reptile encounters are PAPA approved and conducted under supervision of our well trained guides.
‘Africa’s deadliest’ snake shows are conducted on certain public holidays at 12h10 -during these shows the snake handler will introduce some of Africa’s most feared snakes – with a touch component! ENQUIRIES AND BOOKINGS ADVISED for the snake shows.
Crocodile Cage Diving
Take things to the next level with our crocodile cage diving experience by sharing a pond with Africa’s top apex predator, the Nile crocodile. Facilitated by experienced guides, crocodile cage diving is a thrilling close encounter that includes a safety briefing. This takes place in our new, sturdy and spacious cage that’s surrounded by water on all sides.
Spend around 20 minutes in the crocs’ watery habitat and get to observe how these ambush predators behave in their element. The crocodile cage diving experience is both underwater and at surface level.
Booking is recommended but not essential. This experience, ages 9 and up, is available from mid December 2020.
Finally, for those looking for a thrill, experience being hunted in the dark by Africa’s largest predator, hop into the waters of our crocodile cage dive during warm summer evenings while our biggest crocs try to get their own evening snack! These limited night dives are only on offer during warm summer months and promise to be both a safe and terrifying experience that you will never forget!
All engaging encounters are PAPA approved and does not interfere with with our reptiles natural behaviour.
Fishing | Rowing | SUP | Cycling | Happenings
Our wide, tranquil dam doesn’t just look great, it’s also stocked with bass and tilapia ( but no crocs! ) and great for bass fishing. Cast a line from one of several jetties or take a jaunt in our rowboat. Fringed by willows and set against a spectacular mountain backdrop, the dam is popular among experienced anglers and novices alike.
This is bass fishing with a view ! We can arrange an in-depth lesson with a professional fishing guide to take your bass fishing to the next level. Fishing not your thing? Our ‘Slinky snaky cycle track is ideal for kids 3-7. Bring your own bike or rent one from us.
You can bring your own equipment or you can borrow from us. BOOKINGS RECOMMENDED, UNLESS YOU BRING YOUR OWN GEAR.
With crocodiles, pizzas and play areas galore – not to mention loads of fresh air – we are the ideal kids parties venue. First choose between the four different venues (both outdoors and indoors), then decide whether you’d like to bring your own food and drinks or if you’d prefer us to take care of that (order from our menu or host a pizza party).
Then top it all off with one or two of the fantastic activities available at Le Bonheur. This is a kids parties venue that will provide adventures the kids will never forget.
Seeing a real crocodile sure beats a jumping castle and a magic show!
Our school outings is a result of our passion to foster an awareness and appreciation of reptiles among South Africans. We view ourselves as an outdoor classroom. With our school outings learners will get to see 100 crocs (from hatchlings to 3+ metres) and get to meet a few local and exotic snakes. Learners can make use of our many play areas, and we can even provide lunch if required. School outings have just become an adventure.
