This place has so much going for it....gardens, opportunity, restaurant, atmosphere....and so much more but somehow the owners have lost interest and let it go. What a great shame for somewhere that could be a pearl.

The staff who handle the crocs have poor manners, the food is terrible and I suspect is handled poorly.

Mamba village is cool, located in langata, one of the chillier parts of Nairobi. You get to see crocs up close and even sample some if you are an adventurous eater. Personally, Im opposed to animals in captivity but, hey...*shrugs. One of the coolest things for me though is the man made lake which is the shape of the African... More

We learnt a lot about crocodiles, tortoises and ostriches from our guide and it was a great chance to hold a croc or a tortoise. The food in the restaurant was simple but clearly prices for mazungu tourists. Eat elsewhere.

We have visit Mamba Village three-four times during 2013-14 and we think the place is ok. Its clean, good food, nice staff, nice sitting area when you eat in the garden. The only thing to complain about is the way they keep the crocodiles according to European standard...but yes, Mamba Village is in Kenya and we dont have the same... More
