“Worth a brief visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Relatively small ruins but worth a brief visit. Some nice views over the creek if you walk to the edge of the site. The man who sold entry tickets guided us and was quite good. Be aware there are 100 steps to get to the ruins! Attached reptile park very DIY but interesting if the man who runs it is there as he spends his spare time rescuing snakes from people's homes.

I liked the tranquility of this place, the Giriama people and their culture. The place is overly quite and ideal for pure relaxition

“Spent few hours there”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2012

Yes, it is not anything unforgottable, small ruins of mosque and huge banyan trees. Visit also Reptile rescue park next door. You will get own guide when you pay to entrance to ruins - he helped us a lot to understand what Mnarani used to be.
