Hoedspruit Reptile Centre

The Hoedspruit Reptile Centre is located just outside Hoedspruit (16km). This area has a particularly high concentration of snakes and therefore there is a high frequency of interactions between snakes and people, making this a prime location for reptile-related research and public education. Day visitors are self guided but staff are always at hand to help with questions. Each animal’s habitat has a legend with lots of useful information regarding feeding, venoms, distribution and other interesting facts about the animal on display. If you are interested you can also book for the Interactive and Photographic tours where you are given the opportunity to have a hands-on experience.

This is a self-guided visit where you would walk through the Centre on your own and view the many spectacular animals on display.  One can read the easy to understand informative display legends for yourself.  Please understand that our curators are there to look after the animals and are really busy but they are always willing to help with any questions that you may have.
