I have been to visit this place a long time ago and decided to take my four year old granddaughter to show her around. Tickets are nominally priced, there is a separate fee to be paid for cameras. I did not mind this as the cost was so insignificant. However, the place is very small, and generally looked run down... More

Really a place to visit and experience the snake life, which normally we do not. The fear of snakes will not be there by visiting there. We can learn a lot. Children and elderly people will have a nice time. It is better for us to learn these which will be helpful in life

The snakes, pythons, cobras and crocodiles are maintained in nice no-fear environment. The work of support staff was also very commendable. Definitely recommended for wild life lovers!

As reptile enthusiasts knowing the history of the park (started by Rom Whitaker) we were very excited to visit the snake park and were immensely disappointed by it. We felt the crocodiles were housed inadequately, with very shallow ponds and overcrowding in the Mugger enclosure. The water in the the snake enclosures was absolutely filthy, as was the glass. The... More
