We bought a combined ticket with the National Museum, which was a good value together and made for a very nice afternoon. Inside you will find many major snakes of Africa, including the massive Rock Python and the deadly Puff Adder. A surprise bonus was the many tortoises wandering a grassy courtyard. The crocodiles are rather disappointing, but overall it... More

It all appeared a bit dirty and run down. Some of the glass on the cages was cracked, all of the glass was filthy and the cages looked like they needed a good clean out. There were crocs in the park as well but it was a bit depressing looking at them in really small enclosures. If you enjoy animals,... More

I have visited this place since its inception and always enjoyed it. I took a friend there a couple of weeks ago as a climax to a holiday. We were both appalled at the state of the place. Filthy cages. Filthy glass fronts. Cages with obvious signs of lack of attention. e.g Things like sloughed skin obviously left to rot.... More

We got a combined ticket to see the museum and the snake park (I had visions of a snake park being filled with slides and swings specially built for snakes but, sigh, can't have everything...). As a combined ticket, it's worth it as it only costs 300 Ksh more to see both. If you just bought a ticket for the... More

The place has a decent selection of snakes and crocks. Though it is not huge and could do with a refurbishing, I would recommend it as nice add on to the Nairobi national museum visit (they share the location). My kids seemed to have enjoyed it! Purchase the combined ticket for both the museum and the snake park.

They have all sorts of snakes, poisonous too, and other things like iguanas, crocodiles and turtles. But personally I think that the presentation is not quite good and the place looks old. Although the animals seem to be in good conditions I didn't enjoy so much like in the museum but it was good (I guess reptiles are not my... More

If you don't like reptiles you probably won't like this place because is full of them. For reptile lovers like us it was quite nice experience. They have all sorts of snakes, poisonous too, and other things like iguanas, crocodiles and turtles. The place is old, but the animals seem to be in good conditions.

This park is by a museum but it is badly presented .. badly built and you finish walking through the park in surprisingly 10 mints. If you don't believe me and seeing is believing you will come out of this park wasted your time, money & mind. Regards my recommendation it is Infinity (∞) Zero..Zero..Zero

If you enjoy reptiles and like to get a close up look at many highly venomous and dangerous reptiles you would not want to stumble across in the wild, then this is a place to visit. Along with the various species of snakes at this facility, it is also home to a variety of additional reptiles found through out Africa.... More
