We were shown around by bonniface who was very knowledgable about snakes. It was a great place to visit and we came away with lots of new facts about snakes.

So many snakes to see, and the people there know so much! I got to hold a house snake. Definitely a place to go while in Watamu.

We really enjoyed the snake farm. It was a great opportunity to get close to the snakes and learn more about them. The staff are very knowledgeable and seem to take the protection of the snakes seriously. We really enjoyed our visit.

Fantastic farm, they really care about their animals, and even rehome them after they are able to survive on their own. Even got to hold some snakes and a chameleon!

I visited the Bio Ken Snake Farm Feb 2014. Very impressed with the knowledge that the staff have for these snakes and other animals.

The boys went for a visit to this attraction and were totally absorbed! They were allowed to hold non-venomous snakes and came back full of information. A short tuk-tuk ride away. Does close during the middle of the day so check times.

We went to Bio Ken for an outing for our son's birthday. The literature in the hotel promised an interesting family excursion. In reality they do a fabulous job creating anti-venoms and you will get to see many species of reptiles - some fairly alarming! Do not be expecting a tourist attraction - this is a working facility who are... More

We were taken on a very interesting tour by one of the Keepers. He was very well informed about all the snakes habitats, diets etc. Also had the opportunity to handle the snakes. The Brown House snake was very easy to handle. They also milk the snakes of venom and keep stocks of Anti-Venom as the African Puff-Adder is very... More
