Nairobi Mamba Village is famous for its large number of crocodiles that one can see from up close. One can also get to see tortoises and ostriches. The village has rides for kids - the amusement park type of rides, as well as rides on horse-back and camel-back. School groups come here in large numbers.

Mambo village is a bit of a tourist attraction and has IMO a good buffet which is priced for tourists. There is also something like a small zoo with crocodiles and turtles. The keepers sometimes let you touch or hold small turtles or crocodiles to get tips. The real attraction for me is the relaxing lake around which you can... More

Mamba Village is a beautiful place for a visit, but is not as good as a restaurant. Everything I tried was tasteless.

Great crocodiles (they have no alligators in Kenya), ostriches, turtles, baboons and pussycats. We held many and I even kissed one of them (crocodiles)! The horsey rides and playgrounds is also a nice thing to be given extra. That lake with boatd totally shaped in the form of Africa is highly original. Thank you James for guiding us through the...

Always a great stop over for lunch. Always ask how long the ala carte may take so you can use the time to do the tour before food is ready. If you are so hungry take buffet option as the waiting may piss you off. Otherwise food is tasty and worth waiting....

Given we had made good time on our day out in Nairobi then we added this venue as an extra on the day. Thank goodness we did our close up experience with the Nile Crocodiles was absolutely brilliant. We paid a small entrance fee and were met by one of the specialist guides. He was great with both us and... More

If you've never seen a crocodile up close it's quite an experience (they'll even let you hold a small one!), but they belong in the wild. The enclosures are very small for the large number of animals they have, which I really didn't like. On the plus side, the guide was very knowledgeable and the rest of the park is... More
