Amazing place for a weekend getaway! As the name suggests, it has many varieties of snakes but apart from that there are so many other animals too. Also, it's fascinating to see so many crocodiles altogether. Do visit in afternoon when they feed the crocodiles. Their sudden movement is amazing!
It is very important place to go. This is an informative place to the knowledge of snake and it's nature and food. It's gives a good class to the information in English can understand each and every one of you. There is an airobic competing unit in function. It degrades all waste with out smell. Thank you so much ❤️
