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.

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.

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)

Want to get a thrill and be face to face with some killers? Don't bother with River Road, see the most poisonous and sometimes beautiful snakes in Kenya at the Snake Park. If it gets a bit too much, break out and enjoy the succulent garden. The snakes are cool but prepare yourself for an attack of the hebegebes. Woaah.... More
