Crocokraal Restaurant

Crocokraal Restaurant

This is the Crocokraal Restaurant at PheZulu Safari Park.

The house seems to be the old colonial farm house, replete with wrap-around Victorian verandah, broekie lace cast iron trimmings, and corrogated iron roof.  Strangely a tree has been left to grow through the one end of the verandah.  More strangely to me however, the restaurant serves such delicacies as crocodile steak. It reminded me of the Thai zoo that put exotic animals on the zoo restaurant menu, but took them off again under pressure. Except nobody seems to see any problem in this case. Perhaps Nile crocodiles are not sexy as lion, buffalo, elephant and giraffe?

We visited two reptile parks in South Africa, and a private house who seemed to have their own private reptile park in their back garden. I am not very into snakes and monitors and leguvaans and at the private house we saw the stacks of rat cages (for breeding their food), which was off-putting for squeamish types like me.  Therefore I was interested to read yesterday via Rebecca Blood about the snake and hamster that are friends.  Hollywood couldn’t make it up.  Actually they could.
