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.

There were a wide variety of interesting snakes as well as alligators and turtles.... All were on display and were visible, but the glass of the enclosures was badly marred which affected clear viewing of many of the snakes.... The courtyard was amazing and the closer you looked the more snakes you could spot climbing around in the vegetation! There... More

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
