Mamba village is cool, located in langata, one of the chillier parts of Nairobi. You get to see crocs up close and even sample some if you are an adventurous eater. Personally, Im opposed to animals in captivity but, hey...*shrugs. One of the coolest things for me though is the man made lake which is the shape of the African... More

We learnt a lot about crocodiles, tortoises and ostriches from our guide and it was a great chance to hold a croc or a tortoise. The food in the restaurant was simple but clearly prices for mazungu tourists. Eat elsewhere.

We have visit Mamba Village three-four times during 2013-14 and we think the place is ok. Its clean, good food, nice staff, nice sitting area when you eat in the garden. The only thing to complain about is the way they keep the crocodiles according to European standard...but yes, Mamba Village is in Kenya and we dont have the same... More

Great place, the largest collection of crocodiles I've ever seen. You can watch them at few meters distance, which makes it exciting. You can even hold in hands one of the small crocodiles. There are some turtles as well. There is a restaurant with decent food, at an Africa continent shaped lake. Kids can have some joy playing the other... More

This attraction always reminds me of the nursery rhyme ''Ten crocodiles were going to the river ... They wave goodbye, to all the little children, Their long tails swinging in the water, They're going out fight the elephants, Oh. ... They went to war to fight the elephant,.......'' I can just say that it is wonderful place to take the... More

I just can not imagine how this "attraction" is allowed to continue. It is dirty, cruel and completely unacceptable. It should be closed down.

Interesting for kids. Mamba means 'crocodile' in kiswahili. There is also a lake. The Giraffe Centre is also not far from here.
