The Tour of the farm starts with a movie on the life cycle and behavior of crocodiles, followed by a comprehensive tour of the rest of the farm, and ends with the highlight of the day: a spectacular scene of blood-thirsty crocodiles fighting for food during feeding time. Excellent cuisine is available at the Mamba Restaurant, and the house specialty is superbly grilled crocodile meat.
Souvenirs of your visit can be bought at the Mamba Souvenir shop located within the village. Mamba Village Crocodile Farm in Mombasa has crocodiles from all categories/stages, from giant (Big Daddy - Man eater) crocodiles to baby crocodiles (just hatched) and the white crocodiles. The farm has a feeding time schedule every day at 5 pm and it is incredible to see this experience as the crocodiles jump up a few meters from their pool to grab a bite of meat.
