African Crocodile Cage Diving at Le Bonheur Crocodile Farm is an adrenaline-pumping adventure, which allows you to have a close encounter with Africa’s apex predators.

You will get a close look at their thick tails, strong jaws and jagged teeth while you enjoy the thrill of feeding time.


The African crocodile was hunted almost to the point of extinction from the 1940s through to the 1960s. A number of international protection programmes, and with the establishment of places like Le Bonheur Crocodile Farm, the numbers have increased in most areas.

The farm is a family-run and has remained in the family for generations and has over 1000 crocs in the dams.
