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.

I love snakes so I found this park awesome. Theres just about every kind of snake there is, even the really deadly ones like Black Mamba and Puff Adder, and I even got the chance to hold a Python. There are crocodiles, turtles, alligators and chameleon too. The guide was very knowledgable and told us all about each type of... More

A bit of a waste of money in my view - even with the combined ticket of the Museum. There are basically about 20 glass cases and a few crocs and alligators - (oh and a few fish tanks)

Well the place is very small, also not so clean, i finished the whole thing in 20 Minutes, it cost about $15, if you can spare it, it is ok, if you are on Budget avoid it.
