Madras Crocodile Bank Reviews & Ratings

  • A really good place. Night safari is a must try here. I had been to the one and it was great. This is one of a kind experience. The place has literally no lights at night and they provide you with torches to guide your path. Crocodiles eyes shine like Pearls in this torch light. The guide on the safari are also very knowledgeable , overall a really good experience.

  • One of the most famous and world renowned crocodile bank. You can see several varieties of crocodiles and anyone who visits this place will realize how many different species are there and these gigantic reptiles' behaviour. It would be a good place to visit for children and adults alike. Maintenance of the place was good when we visited and you have several roadside vendors who will be selling Mangoes and Pineapples for snacks. Roadside vehicle parking is available.

  • Just Awesome... Lots n lots of crocodile... All are properly Maintained. Before visiting this park I don't even have idea about different different species in crocodile. Hats off and Best wishes to the Team of The Madras Crocodile Bank. Must Visit... Don't Miss... only 60/- Rupees is Entry Ticket Worth to Pay... One Hour will be enough for just walk and some Pic. If you go with reading all boards and information it will take around 3 hours.

  • Very nice place to see the crocodiles and other reptiles of various types at one place. They are present in abundance here. So many crocodiles but only one problem, you can hardly see them moving. varieties of tortoises are also good. The park is well maintained. Be careful while watching. Wonderful experience and must see place.

  • Nice and good place to spend time with family. Good for children who see real alligators. Tortoise also there. Everyday 3 pm they feed food to crocodiles. Nice to watch. If you want spend time with some adventures feel you can go there.
