Kalimba Reptile Park

Lusaka, Zambia · Open today: 09:00-17:00

Great for a group excursion or family day out, Kalimba Reptile Park is a popular attraction offering lots of 'scaly' sites and activities including fishing. Nestling in the lush basin of the Ngwerere stream, this is one of the best tourist destinations in Lusaka that offers a fun filled day out for locals as well as international visitors. The reptile park is an extension of Kalimba Farms which specialises primarily in crocodile farming, but also produces top quality free range Pekin ducks and fish. Due to COVID-19, the closing time on weekends has been changed to 17:00 until they have a better understanding of the “new normal”.

Tourist attraction

At Kalimba Reptile Park you'll experience giant Nile crocodiles, as well as indigenous snakes, tortoises and other reptiles. It's also one of the few places left in the world where you can see the rare and shy African slender-snouted crocodile. There are also plenty of other activities to fill your time, or to entertain the kids if you'd rather relax by the pool.

Duck and Fish Farming

Kalimba Reptile Park specialises in free range Pekin Duck and the indigenous species Tilapia (Bream). The ducks are free range from incubation to final product and the fish farming is critical for the conservation of Tilapia (Bream) which is under threat in Zambia. Kalimba supplies high quality Pekin Duck to restaurants and hotels and is a commercial supplier of parent stock Tilapia.

Crocodile Farming

Kalimba Farm began in 1985, and was the first farm in the world to integrate crocodile farming with aquaculture. Today they incubate, hatch and raise crocodiles on site and produce high end crocodile skin, meat and oil for local and export markets. Kalimba works closely with the Zambia Crocodile Farmers Association.

Did you know that tortoises also lay eggs?

News · 27 days ago
The female Leopard Tortoise will dig a hole in the ground where she will lay her eggs. She will then leave the nest and not come back to it. Her babies will hatch many months later and will literally pop out the ground to start their lives alone.
