Could not believe my eyes when I looked at the collection of Crocodiles in there. Starting from the baby ones to the largest crocodile all are awesome. The elephant show was awesome. Hats off to the two guys at the crocodile show. Food was good. Give some time to look at the area. Huge area to be covered. Its not only crocodile there are so many other animals too to be discovered. Very tough to get a taxi here. Need to wait a bit to get one. Most of the taxis are booked previously for pick up. Some will be standing there to charge a very high rate. So flag down a taxi which comes to drop someone or else stop the one which is going in the front road but don't choose the one standing in front.
