Mamba Village!!!!!

Mamba Village is situated in Nyali, Mombassa. It is East Africa's (and I think Africa's) largest crocodile farm.
This post is going to be mainly about crocodiles.

The entrance (I got this one on the internet, i didn't take a photo, but this is pretty much how it looks).

After we got our tickets, we got a tour guide who took us round the farm. We got there right on time for feeding the crocodiles which was around 5pm. The farm has about 8 ponds and each contain at least 20 crocodiles of about the same age.


read that sign......LOL
The crocodiles are fed at least once a week, so 1 pond on a day of the week, so these crocodiles have been conditioned to know what day and time their feeding is gonna be, but it take about 15 to 20 years for them to get used to this routine.

The guy rings the bell and prepares to feed them while they gather around.

Crocodile missing a foot, probably due to feeding fights.
And they gathered around.
And he lowered the meat.



Let the strongest win!!!!!!!!

The little ones......reared mainly for their skin. And these are the ones used for meat in the Mamba village restaurant (it tasted really nice).

We also saw some snakes.

T'was a good outing..............
