“Great collection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

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.

“Plain Awesome!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

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. There are crocodiles, turtles, alligators and chameleon too. The guide was very knowledgable and told us all about each type of snake and how to differentiate similar species. It's a great trip if you have even a slight interest in snakes, otherwise there is the National Museum, which has some interesting history about Kenya.

“Poor”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

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)

“Very Small”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

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.
