Create an itinerary including The Reptile Farm
Get a close look at West Africa's venomous vipers and handle a few harmless reptiles at The Reptile Farm. Nestled within a lush forest, the farm provides a home for snakes, lizards, tortoises, and crocodiles. Take a guided tour to learn more about the benefits of having snakes in the local environment--especially when it comes to vermin control. See spitting cobras, royal pitons napping after lunch, chameleons changing colors, and charming gecko lizards licking their constantly open eyes (most gecko species lack eyelids). For a truly unforgettable experience, try wrapping a piton around your neck.
