"The best place on ECR. It is around 2-3 kms from kovalam junction. Make sure that u be there at 4:30 pm on Sunday as it is the feeding time of crocs. Also, make sure you carry a good camera"

"For 40 rupees per person it is not a bad place to go. It is far away from Chennai. About 60 kms away so it is best to organise a driver package for 8 hours which costs around 1800 - 2000 rupees. The Driver will take you to any location specified and will wait for you while you visit the places you would like to go. Be aware if you take this method of transport you will need to pay tolls on top of the fee for the cab you have paid. The crocodile park was OK for the money. You get to see a wide range of crocodiles and turtles."

"Perfect outing for children during summer holidays and good to visit in sunny afternoons. Since there is lot of shades you dont feel the hot sun and the children can run around looking for themselves at the different species of crocs"
