“Nice, but has been nicer...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Mamba needs some upkeep. It's been almost eight years since the last visit. The same tired little rides are available for a fee and after all this time, perhaps new ones are in order?. The crocodiles even seem tired of lying around. A little boost to the overall decor is recommended. The restaurant is nice. The staff are friendly. The kids enjoyed the small tour, and of course, holding the baby crocodile was a highlight for them.

“Really just a zoo with a park for kids”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

I expected more from the Mamba Village but saw only piles of crocodiles in four really small enclosures with ponds in the middle. There were also 2 Ostriches kept in another enclosure separated from the Crocodiles by a kids park with camel rides, water rides and picnic areas.
It was a 10 minutes experience which was not worth the money charged non residents

“All Crocodiles.. You will Love it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Large enough park cheap entrance fee (200ksh / $2.25USD) , it is a time not wasted and worth the money especially when you know it is privately owned but need a lot renovation as they certainly get a lot of visitors all year round..

If you love wild life, just go there and check how is the wild life with the crocodiles
They also arrange a meal for the visitors which is good touch from them
