“Dull place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

A sad place which has nothing much to do with a park or an animal land... Rather a zoo than a park. Rather go to Jozani forest and see animals free.

“Conservation in action”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

It was very interesting to see how the animals were being cared for.The impression was that there was not a lot of funding taking place but the area was well kept and clean and the animals looked healthy and well taken care off. The guide was very informative and made a good impression.

“Loved the chameleon!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2012

Great opportunity to see reptiles and animals that you don't usually get to see unless you're very lucky.
They have snakes, large monitor lizards, diuk diuks, terrapins, but most importantly a beautiful chameleon.

The guide was very friendly and knowledgable and he was happy to let you hold pythons, lizards and all manner of reptiles.

“Educational”

Owner tries to educate the children and rid the community of ages old superstitions about native and rare animals. Does a good job with the materials available.

“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

This is a well-established and family-run reptile park which does fantastic work in educating Zanzibari schoolchildren about their endemic species.

Most of the animals and reptiles are held in small open-air enclosures so you get to be really close to them and you can handle them if you wish. I really enjoyed the visit, the guide (mohammed, the owner) was very knowledgeable and it was very interesting. They were many types of snakes, including python and boomslang, also chameleons, tree hyrax (didnt come out of its hut), nile monitor lizard, smaller lizard, duiker, rabbits and tortoises.

Good fun and interesting; well worth a visit if you are in south zanzibar or near jozani forest.
