you can see many snakes from Kenyan wildlife but they are showed in a very boring way. Their "cages" are ´not nice and I think the staff should be more active and informative

The place is as small as a 3 bedroom house, and don';t let the photo's lie to you, new rules,you are not allowed to hold any snake even if you are ready to pay, usually the place is overcrowded by school children and it takes roughly 10mins to see everything in that tiny little place.I find it unfair how they...

The displays here are quite sad. In particular those of the two crocodiles and the aquariums. The official price is 1200KES for foreigners which is many times too high. At 300KES, as combined with the national museum (1500 total) it is perhaps a different way to spend half an hour or so.

Don't expect too much and would not find it worth the travel without a visit to the National Museum. It's small and outdated. The living area for the reptiles could use an upgrade. Anyhow ok when combined, not much more to say about it.

Went there years ago when I was on the St. Lawrence Univ. Kenya Semester. We had classes at the Nairobi YMCA and lived in the Westlands area of Nairobi. One day coming home from class I stopped in at the Snake Park. When I came to the Mambas I noticed the sign said the snakes in the exhibit had been... More

To those of us like me who fear and hate these animals, it's SCARY!!!!! However,maybe I should say a word like (LUCKILY) the snakes are tamed and caged in the glass houses so they wont touch you. You will be able to learn about the various species of snakes found in the country. Worth checking out.

I took my little ones here for a visit to the museum and snake park, was reasonably priced at just 300/- for a citizen adult and 150/- for citizen child combination for both, however as a resident I paid double at 600/- and non-residents pay 1500/-!!! I personally would not pay that at all, however the museum was interesting, there... More

The snake park is an add on to the National Museum. This in itself was a little odd but we thought - why not. They have a great array of species but the display cases are very old & scratched. Needs to improve standards for both the reptile residents & guests.
