Enchantment

I loved seeing the greenery and walking the peaceful trails. Enchanting in a fairy tale sort of way.

After visiting the National Museum we were ready for something different, and got it from the adjoining Snake park. *The Good* The park is by necessity closed off from the outside world, reasonably clean and simple to navigate. The name says it all - you will see loads of snakes in different habitats. Also housed here are fish, crocodiles and... More

The Nairobi Snake Park (NSP) is inside Nairobi National Museum. It displays cobras, puff adders, mambas and the large African-Rock python (non-poisonous) found only in Kenya. Several species of African crocodiles, an American alligator, freshwater terrapins and tortoises are displayed in aquariums holding coral fish from the East African lakes and rivers. I went to the Snake Park with a... More

Tucked away at the side of the museum is the snake park. Has snakes from around the world most of which were fairly active when we visited which the kids loved.

Old and run down... good if you want to see the snakes but buy the combo with the Museum as the 1200 schilling is not worth it as a separate ticket but the 300 is!

Most of the snakes particularly the boomslangs were in awful conditions, in tiny aquariums with no hides or anywhere to rest besides a single branch. Ontop of this, you can see dead, diseased and emaciate feeder chameleons stuck in tanks and even in the open air enclosure (which was the only positive part of the park).

Visting the snake park together with the National Museum is a good thing. You can seethe snakes, fish and turtles in safe environment.

My son likes snakes, so we decided to take him to see them while visiting the National Museum. He loved the 30 minutes of so it took to see various snakes; most of them displayed in fish tank type enclosures. I guess you cannot display them any other way, but it was really depressing and it did not seem that... More
