Afrikanos Crocodile Experience in Gansbaai, Overberg.

Staring deep into the prehistoric eye of a Nile crocodile while under water might be an idea too outlandish to have made it to your current bucket list, but this unusual experience is in full swing in the down-to-earth fishing town of Gansbaai.

Afrikanos is home to 6 enormous Nile crocs, the biggest and most feared crocodile in the world. Submerge yourself into their aquatic world and observe them in their pond. A high spec stainless-steel net is the only thing separating you from your new toothy friends which means during your croc dive you are both free to move around.

If curiosity and the love of a thrill isn’t enough to induce you to enter the ‘dragon’s lair’, then a pond tour over and around the crocodile’s enclosure will provide you with plenty of opportunity to get to know these fascinating creatures. Our friendly tour guides and croc handlers will enhance the experience by sharing interesting observations and insights along the way.

Although our crocs are the star of the show Afrikanos is a local Gansbaai establishment that provides so much more.  It’s a fun sunny atmosphere with hearty food, locally produced craft beer on tap and a play park for kids open 7 days a week.  Afrikanos is an all-day adventure for the whole family.
