“staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2015

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 should be more active and informative

“Not worth the fee!!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2015

The place is as small as a 3 bedroom house, and don';t let the photo's lie to you, new rules,you are not allowed to hold any snake even if you are ready to pay, usually the place is overcrowded by school children and it takes roughly 10mins to see everything in that tiny little place.I find it unfair how they can charge non citizens a ridiculous 800/- for snake park, but anyway corruption is the way of life here :)

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

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.

“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It's small and outdated.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.
