Sprawling 20 acres, the Langkawi Crocodile Farm is specially designed and landscaped with beautiful plantation and greenery, making it looks like a recreation park. Different species of crocodiles are being kept in specific ponds, where visitors can have a thorough look at the crocodiles while walking around.
Known locally as Taman Buaya, the Crocodile Farm is located in Datai Bay area at the north western end of the island. The entire farm area is spread across some 20 acres of land area out of which about half the area is accessible to tourists and visitors. Remaining is where croc farming takes place.
The farm is nestled in lush greenery with mountains as the backdrop. Looks quite impressive from outside. You will see one of the largest collections of crocodiles in the farm, of different species and sizes numbering over 1000 and comprising of both crocodiles and alligators (it’s not easy to differentiate between the two types unless you are knowledgeable in the subject).
While many crocodiles have been imported, lots are bred & reproduced in the farm. The entire farm is divided into several sections or concreted ponds. There are placards at each section giving information about the crocodiles in that section.
