Although we had a lady from the staff walk with us and talk about the nile crocs which was good, the place seems run down and very little visitors. The only reason we went was because my 2 year old wanted to see the crocs up close.

We decided to stop by Mamba Village on the recommendation of some local family members. We were not disappointed! We loved getting to see the crocodiles, hold the turtles, and feed the ostriches. I think the best part of the visit was out tour guide, David. He was very entertaining and extremely knowledgeable! I would recommend making a stop here... More

This is a tourist trap, designed largely to catch tourists on day long tours of Nairobi. The park is a large compound containing a small crocodile park, a pen with some ostriches, a lake shaped like the map of Africa, some kayaks, horse riding, an inflatable castle for kids to jump on and what looked like a toy train. We... More

This was not an attraction that we had on our list. We see crocs [caimans to be precise] on the banks of the Ameca River in Mexico every winter and we saw many crocs on the banks of the Mara River in Kenya. But we were in the vicinity and we had a little extra time so our driver/guide suggested... More

Left feeling dissapointed really after seeing that the majority of the reviews on here are positive. It was very cheap to enter (about 10 USD) and the guide was knowledgable. They have a lake also and at first the scenery seemed very nice. Wasn't able to hold a croc in the end because they had grown too large to handle.... More

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
