“Very sad looking snakes and crocs”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2015

The displays here are quite sad. In particular those of the two crocodiles and the aquariums. The official price is 1200KES for foreigners which is many times too high. At 300KES, as combined with the national museum (1500 total) it is perhaps a different way to spend half an hour or so.

“Not that fun...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2015

Ok, you can see many snakes from Kenyan wildlife but they are showed in a very boring way. Their "cages" are ´not nice and I think the staff could be more active and informative.

“Combi with National museum”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2014

Don't expect too much and would not find it worth the travel without a visit to the National Museum.
It's small and outdated. The living area for the reptiles could use an upgrade.
Anyhow ok when combined, not much more to say about it.

“Mambas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2014

Went there years ago when I was on the St. Lawrence Univ. Kenya Semester. We had classes at the Nairobi YMCA and lived in the Westlands area of Nairobi. One day coming home from class I stopped in at the Snake Park. When I came to the Mambas I noticed the sign said the snakes in the exhibit had been captured at the Nairobi YMCA! Got my attention.
