I am not really a fan of snake but all the same I liked the expereince. There were different kinds of snakes and each has a unique story about it that the guides tell you. They are well informed and ready to help. It is alos easily accessible.

The combo ticket with Nairobi Museum results in a really brief sidetrip to a somewhat worn and tired exhibit of snakes. Although always a curiosity, the snakes were not particularly well housed or displayed, and the educational exhibits were lacking. But, as it is just a bit more to add this ticket to the much more impressive National Museum, it... More

Some interesting reptiles, but the place itself is very run down and needs a revamp. only spent half an hour here as the place made us feel uncomfortable, especially seeing the some of the animals in what appeard to be cramped conditions, would not recommend.

Although there were some interesting animals/reptiles, the place was rather run down and looks as though it is struggling to keep going.

Very poorly run, staff showed no interest in questions. Open snake/Chameleon pit had no names. Snake exhibits were dirty and cramped very upsetting to see reptiles kept like this but it could be a funding issue. The Museum next door doesn't seem to suffer. Highlights were the birds seen there, Paradise Flycatchers and Sunbirds not the snakes which we really... More

If you have any interest in the wide variety reptiles from across Africa, this is a good place to visit. Most people will only hear of "Mambas" & "Cobras", as it is very rare for a tourist to see one while on safari. While the park is old the exhibits are kept well and it is worth a visit.
