With only a few school days remaining, many are turning their attention to holiday activities that will keep the entire family entertained. Fortunately, Crocworld Conservation Centre on the KZN South Coast has a fun-filled holiday programme arranged, running at the Scottburgh-based centre from 1 to 13 April.
“It’s been wonderful being able to welcome visitors through our doors to the newly revamped facilities at Crocworld, and we’re really excited that we’re able to offer residents and visitors a fantastic line-up of holiday activities,” said Crocworld Conservation Centre’s acting Centre Manager, James Wittstock. “Visitor safety is our primary concern at Crocworld, which means that all relevant Covid-19 safety procedures are strictly adhered to. Fortunately, this is an open-air centre with lots of space for the required social distancing within the number limitations.”

This extends the centre’s existing aviary, which was recently upgraded, housing numerous local and exotic bird species.
• ‘Laggie’, a beautiful, female, white-throated monitor lizard and a baby stork born at the centre are some of the newest residents to join the Crocworld team.
• The popular Whale Watching Walkway has been revamped, giving visitors the chance to spot some of these migrating mammals as well as the ever-playful dolphins.
All Covid-19 protocols are in place at Crocworld and visitors are urged to wear masks, sanitise and follow family group social distancing regulations. In line with regulations, the centre and café are open from 9am to 4.30pm.
