Crocworld Conservation Centre was opened on the 27th of March 1985, by Crookes Brothers Limited.

The main focus of the centre was to farm with the Nile Crocodile for the meat and skin trade, subsequently the tourism aspect of the business grew. In 2009 the company stopped farming with the Nile Crocodile and has become solely focused on Tourism, Education and most recently on Conservation. Crocworld Conservation Centre has welcomed more than 1.5 million visitors through our facility over the years and is a well-known tourism destination on the Mid South Coast of KZN.
