The Reptile Farm, Kartong

#1 of 15 in Things to do in West Coast Division
Get a close look at West Africa's venomous vipers and handle a few harmless reptiles at The Reptile Farm. Nestled within a lush forest, the farm provides a home for snakes, lizards, tortoises, and crocodiles. Take a guided tour to learn more about the benefits of having snakes in the local environment--especially when it comes to vermin control. See spitting cobras, royal pitons napping after lunch, chameleons changing colors, and charming gecko lizards licking their constantly open eyes (most gecko species lack eyelids). For a truly unforgettable experience, try wrapping a piton around your neck.

  • When you enter you will be greeted by a nice Gambian lady who can tell you all about the park. The different reptiles and how they live is very interesting and instructive. Some snakes and other animals can hold you (safely). We were there in February and heard that a month later there was a fire. Yet it is still worth to visit it. With all the good work that people do here is fantastic. The owners are very friendly and their children also know very much about the animals. After the tour, drinks can be enjoyed at the open bar.

  • You learn a lot about the native species of snakes, crabs,.... Very engaging tour guide. Nice little bar at the end of the tour. Don't forget to check out the Gambian toilet! Very nicely done.  more »
