The snake park is interesting as you can see different types of African snakes, from Green Mamba to Python, and you can marvel how well snakes can camouflage themselves in their natural environment. You can also see the crocodiles being fed, but if you have small children with you dont take them to the crocs mealtime, as they are fed... More

They house many of the snake species that can be viewed through a glass window and it is interesting for both adults and children as long as you are not squeamish about snakes. They have a few lizards and tortoises too. There is restaurant opposite the museum which makes for a nice stop.

it is a place you should visit, regardless all reptiles in the glass boxes (which may be seen in anywhere else and different Zoos) there is an open area in the middle where I watched snakes, lizards, turtles chameleon, and geckos living together same as in the wild, eating each others, fighting, chasing it was a very good experience

This has so much potential, with some really impressive specimens. I have not seen a Gaboon Viper that large before. The puff adder is also an impressive size. There some large mambas which must be reaching their maximum sizes, but the place obviously is not receiving the funds it should. The buildings majestic but the exhibits are run down and... More

If you want to see all kinds of snakes in safe environment, visiting Snake park on the side of National Museum is a good idea.

In the grounds of the Nairobi National Museum, you can combine the ticket for the Museum with one for the Snake Park. It doesn't cost much more. The Snake Park is small, but has a big selection of snakes. There are also some tortoises and an alligator. There are a lot of venomous snakes here, so this is your best... More

This was the most snakes I have ever seen in one day. They are all enclosed but you can read about the type and watch them. If you have more time, pay a guide to tell you about them. We had already done the national museum and my son was tired so we just briefly walked through. I would definitely... More

We went awhile ago, would never go back. the croc pond was dirty with little water. Worst of all were the rabbits ,thin,dehydrated and in the blazing sun. Standing on hot wire in cages, probably snake food.

There are many different snakes here, as well as some crocodiles, and if you look closely, some cute chameleons. Good for kids, but it's not too big, so you don't need that much time.
