About Us

What we do:
Le Croc produces high quality exotic leather for the luxury and fashion industries. Le Croc’s main focus is Nile Crocodile (Niloticus) leather (crust or finished) for the manufacturers of luxury leather goods. Our leathers are tested to meet the European quality standards and we strive to adhere to the best environmental practices for the production of leathers. 

The raw skins which are used for the manufacture of the leather are mainly from our own Crocodile Farm and areprocessed in our own Tannery which is situated on the breeding farm. Le Croc also operates a Guest House on the Crocodile Farm for tourists who want to gain a deeper experience and understanding of the crocodilian species. During your visit to the Guest House you will gain an insight into how wild crocodile populations whose existence was threatened and on the brink of extinction was saved by the commercial utilization of crocodile products in a captive breeding system which has now assured the long term conservation of the species for future generations.

Our History:
Le Croc is the trading name for the Crocodile Tannery, Breeding farm and Guesthouse operations of Syferkuil Investment Holdings (Pty) Ltd. The company came into existence in 1982 and following the acquisition of the company by the Van As family in 1997, it continued its investment in tourism and wildlife properties and operations. In 2003 it embarked on the crocodile rearing operations with the acquisition of the farm Klipkop and construction of crocodile breeding facilities.  During the period 2003 to 2006 a complete new generation infrastructure was established for the rearing of crocodiles under a climate controlled environment.  In 2007 a tannery was established and equipped with the latest technology equipment and during 2008 Le Croc commenced the production of high quality leather with its team of professional technicians.
