Cape Town - If you're a Crocodile Dundee type of traveller, this might be just the thing for you. 

An Australian theme park named Crocosaurus Cove in Darwin City is offering visitors the chance to dive right into the enclosure of a 5 meter-long, 370kg croc they like to call Chopper.

The Aussies have installed a completely see-through acrylic cage - they call it the 'Cage of Death' - into Chopper's cave, where adrenaline junkie divers can now take selfies with the big guy showing off his pearly whites. 

One ticket into the 'Cage of Death' will cost you about R1 500, so save up if you're planning to go. 

Take a look at what you can expect:
