My interest in dinosaurs and fossils was always fueled by the Dinosaur Hall. The main feature in the exhibit is the life size Algoasaurus of which bones were found in the area. My favorite exhibit though is the Shipwreck Hall with all the noteworthy wrecks from around Algoa Bay.
Currently there is a temporary exhibit next to the Snake Park called Africa's Lost World. The exhibit consists of several life sized moving dinosaurs. The Snake Park's permanent exhibit includes a big number of local and foreign snakes, crocs, lizards, tortoises and turtles.
