Tritip crocodile farm Apr 17, 2011
This crocodile farm was located 30 km from Balikpapan, drive through jalan Mulawarman and it supposed to be on the right side.
Rent a car is the most convenient but take angkot ( public mini van ) number 7 - the dark green one will also do. Just ask the driver to take you to crocodile farm and add little extra money ( normal cost is just 3500 rupiah ).
We went there through opposite direction, the road from Samarinda after our trip to Bangkirai forest. There were several public beach that you will passed by start from Manggar beach and more to the north ( Samarinda/ Handil direction )
The crocs farm entrance will cost 10000 ( same for locals and foreign). it supposed to be like mini zoo & cultural center + the farm, however it turned out to 2 sad elephants, monkeys and majority of crocodiles.
There are several cage for different ages of crocs and an open cage for older crocs with 1.8m walls.
Well, crocs were not doing anything if you did not buy dead chicken and throw it to them ;)
The place sell the crocs meat as satay bbq if you fancy to try. Or take the drinks of crocs penis for mens health & stamina.
