We went reluctantly as we were not hugely interested in seeing more crocodiles but luckily our guide insisted (he wanted to go :-) ) A local boy "volunteered" to show us around and quickly jumped into one of the enclosures, picked up a small crocodile (but lots of sharp teeth...) and handed it to our daughter. Nice photographs! We then... More

The restaurant service was ridiculously slow. We all ordered fast food and we had to wait for over 1.5 hour. Paintball was fun though and the grounds were good for a family hangout.

The crocodiles seemed neglected an generally un-cared for in terms of their health and well being. These types of operations should be examined and subsequently shut down, in my opinion.

We started the day by visiting Elephant Orphanage and continued to Mamba Village for lunch. At the time we arrived (around noon), we were second family that was eating outside and waiter suggested that lunch menu (soup, salad, main course, dessert and coffee/tea) was only thing that they would be able to bring quickly. Around 2 p.m. we were getting... More

I liked the guides, they treated my clients well. We walked around listening to stories about the attractions in Mamba especially about the crocodiles and the ostriches.

Mamba sells itself on being able to interact with crocodiles (babies!). The problem was when I was there, one of the keepers was hitting one of the adult crocs so that a wealthy looking American could get an action picture - not my idea of fun. There are tortoises you can handle, and a few slightly dishevelled looking ostriches (which... More

We only stopped here for lunch. We sat outside in a really beautiful area. Food was great; we had goat and the waitress served typical Kenyan foods because we asked her to please show us samples. It was a nice break on a busy day. There were several groups of children there on school field trips.

We were looking for something else to pair with our trip to the elephant orphanage since we had already done the giraffes and Bomas the day before but had missed the elephants. This ended up being a nice way to spend about an hour for our 4 and 2 year old. The crocodile exhibit is simple but with 3 different... More

Ok so it's a bit pricy but for us it was worth every penny The guide we had was fantastic and he showed us everything in the park including all the plants of interest which close up to protect themselves His knowledge was second to none about the crocs and apart from holding the little crocs which make for a...
