Beautiful place, but the food...

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

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
