Over the years I have owned several reptiles and the Vivarium has been amazing. When I travelled, my tortoises and python would go there on vacation. There is a really good selection of animals and I know from the experience of my own, that they are very well cared for. There are programmes for children where they can get to... More

Very nice reptile house with a good selection of snakes, turtles, spiders, lizards and all the rest. Topped off with a nice hands on session where the kids could touch and hold a snake. Recommend a visit.

So you want to see some interesting Snakes and reptiles, this is a place just 5 minutes from the Geneva Airport and 20 minutes outside the Center of Town. Its very reasonable if you find coupons for about CHF 8- for an adult. Its really local and your visit will always be appreciated/helpful for Awareness and reducing phoeobias.

It is one of the best places for lizards, snakes and other reptiles and insects. I highly recommend it. But please do pay attention to the signs not to knock the glass -... More

This is a small place not far from downtown Geneva, very easy to get to by bus. They have a very good collection of snakes, lizards, turtles, tarantulas and alligators including poisonous and endangered species. They even have a nursery with a lot of baby reptiles. You can see the place in less than an hour but you can easily... More
