Camped here with a tour group as we made our way through Kenya. Its basic, but it is just a campsite so has all you would need. The bar is a plus, always had a great atmosphere and owners are very friendly. The food was brilliant. They had put a huge spread on for us on arrival and I couldnt... More

Nam different types of snakes are readily available making it attractive to view their social life.. one would not belief how they are handled since snakes are termed as toxic creatures!!! mzee kobe (Tortoise)still is there gazing at you n making no move.

The Snake Park needs to be rejuvenated and the creatures housed there need larger, cleaner quarters. The snakes enclosures were all dirty and the glass windows were cloudy. The buildings all needed a good coat of paint. The animals must be suffering greatly because there is nothing there to stimulate them.

The potential is there for this to be cool - the location is great right behind the Nairobi National Museum, there are some cool animals (Black Mambas, Alligators, Tortoises, etc) but it looks like a very unfortunate section of a very unfortunate zoo. Only about 1/3 of the animal enclosures have descriptions of the animals meaning you "need" a guide... More
