“Visit If you like seeing snakes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

just few days ago we had gone to join a group who were having a party hosted with the national museum premises. The signs showing the snake park are well positioned and we went here with my son after he prodded me severally. though i had this expectaions of finding a million speciaies of the reptile, it was equally amazing to see the several varieties they have with mimicked habitats. Fishes and other reptiles like the alligator, crocodiles, spiders and tortoise are also within the park. Visit If you like seeing snakes!

“Lots of reptiles”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

If you enjoy reptiles and like to get a close up look at many highly venomous and dangerous reptiles you would not want to stumble across in the wild, then this is a place to visit. Along with the various species of snakes at this facility, it is also home to a variety of additional reptiles found through out Africa. Each enclosure provides a detailed description of the reptile you are viewing stating information such as type type of venom or poison it uses, medical uses, home range, etc. The entrance fee is relatively cheap and it will take you about a half an hour to see all of the reptiles, however after you finish there are many scenic trails to walk around outside the park along with the rest of the museum to view. So if you have some time to kill while in Nairobi, I would recommend making a quick stop at the Snake Park.

“Shabby and very tired.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Built in the 1960s and desperately in need of a facelift. Many of the snakes were in crumbling concrete "boxes" with very little attempt to recreate their natural habitats.

Other reptiles were also, I felt, kept in less than ideal conditions and only the fish and tortoises seemed content in any way.

Maybe I've been spoiled by the likes of Chester Zoo and other excellent facilities, but this place really saddened me. In fact, the only two thingss I enjoyed were the sign saying "Trespassers will be poisoned" and the exit.
