Perry's Bridge Reptile Park is conveniently located just 14kms from Phabeni gate and Numbi gate to Kruger National Park and on the panoramic route to the Blyde River Canyon. This is an opportunity not to be missed when you visit the Lowveld. Species to view include anacondas, reticulated pythons, black mamba, green mamba, rattlesnakes, boomslang, gaboon adder, and cobras, amongst many many others as well as poison dart frogs, iguanas, the ancient leopard tortoises and huge Nile crocodiles. Enclosures are designed to mimic the animals' natural environment, providing a more enjoyable lifestyle for the animals and a providing greater viewing pleasure for our visitors.
Children will love to meet our potbellied pigs PumPum, Peaches and Pumpkin, their goat friends Daisy and Gandalf, the peacocks Letitia and Lancelot, as well as a variety of ducks and geese. The gardens are a bird haven attracting many of our local species including spectacular purple crested touracos and resident woodland kingfishers - we even have a resident gymnogene who is regularly sighted.
