Felt bad for the crocodiles...

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... read more

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

Always heard about Mamba village one last Thursday i decided to have an afternoon quick lunch with my gal. The food was not to my expectation. Needs lots of improvement

It's not like anything you have experienced before. Crocodiles, lakes, fishing, boats and good food. Great for family with young kids who want to see live crocs. Especially cool when they are being fed. It's also great for evening beers with friends. Not to mention the serene boat rides, lovely gardens and playground for kids. Plenty of parking.

Well let me put it this way.. it is NOT a place which is a must do. If you have time to kill, you can consider visiting the Mamba village. The entry fee is a bit high, especially for international tourists. The guides are quite friendly and provide you with good information about the reptiles - crocodiles, tortoises in there.... More

We have been here several times with our children in Kenya and it is a great place. Hold babies, fun rides, camels, horses and all kinds of fun activities. The food is good as well. It is a great place to spend a day with kids.

The concept is very good. However it doesn't seem to have maintained since opening. If you go beyond that, you will enjoy seeing the crocodiles very close.

If you love nature, this is the place to be. It is generally great for a family day out. and if you love nature, peace and quiet like I do, this could be a great destination for you.

This review focusses solely on the Crocodile Park and I would have given a 2 star review had it not been for the Crocodiles being so close. Don't get too excited, this place is very average. The best thing about the place, surprise surprise, is that you get to see Crocodiles really close, but that's it. There is no information... More
