Came here on an tour and looked around for about 15 minutes. People were enjoying themselves and i can see why but the conditions for the animals were actually pretty sad. They had a good range of food to purchase and all right parking.

Whenever i get free time, i used to take my sisters son here as he likes to feed the deers in the guindy zoo. The snake park houses some rare or common species of snakes, crocodiles, tortoises etc. Kids should not miss the snake show at the end of the day like 4 or 5pm.

Unfortunately the park offers an exibition of animals living in a very poor conditions. To see locals enjoying themselves was nice, but to watch the animals was simply sad.

Tips: Make sure you pay for the snake park and not children's park (kiosk right at the end/bottom) and check the times of the demonstrations on entering. 2 of us visited this park on a Saturday afternoon in January and it wasn't too busy compared to the children's park. There isn't a map but there are numbered cages to follow... More

I got over with my work sooner than I had expected and did not have anything planned for the day. Found out Chennai had a Snake Park on the internet and I had to visit it. I did not go there with high expectations though as I have found reptile parks in other cities in India pretty disappointing, but this... More

The snake park appears to have been downsized from my earlier visits years ago. The variety of snakes is smaller - a large number of the enclosures now house pythons, and not much else. There are more crocodiles on display than snakes. The spacious, open demonstration area of yesteryear has been closed off. Demonstrations now happen inside the interpretation centre,... More

I had a few hours to spend in Chennai and the taxi driver suggested snake park. I suppose it passed some time but it just felt a bit grotty. Plenty of crocodiles and snakes to see but all in grotty enclosures.

This zoo was both enjoyable and educational and well worth the small fee. They have a wide range of reptiles (loads of crocodiles!) and lots of information on snakes and other reptiles from around the world. There is also a snake show in the main building every hour or so. I would recommend this for anyone interested in reptiles or... More

It's a nice place to go. Take your kids. Ask them to behave. Set the right example. Probably because these extremely dangerous snakes are in cages and display windows, people try and show their 'power' by banging on glass, etc. There's a sign that says people who annoy the snakes will be sent out. I think they should just feed... More
