La Vanille Nature Park
In La Vanille Crocodile Park, crocodiles are bred for purely commercial purposes. Some important specimens live in the breeding facility.
The park also contains monkeys, fruit bats and wild boar.
For several years, giant tortoises from the Seychelles have been bred here. The huge breeding facility is particularly worth a visit, containing a variety of specimens, from babies to older animals weighing up to 200 kg.
The park has been designed with love. Many tropical plants have been introduced, little streams ripple their way through the area and the many flowers will turn any wander through La Vanille Crocodile Park into an impressive experience.
The large collection of butterflies from all over the world is particularly worth a visit.
In the Park restaurant, visitors can enjoy dishes containing the tasty crocodile meat – an opportunity not to be found in many countries.
