The only way I like to see snakes.

You can buy a combo ticket for the museum and snake park. They are side by side. They've got all the nasty snakes to see, as well as crocs. They also have an American alligator... read more

You can buy a combo ticket for the museum and snake park. They are side by side. They've got all the nasty snakes to see, as well as crocs. They also have an American alligator next to the Nile croc so you can have a clear idea of the difference. Happy to see the snakes housed rather than wild. The... More

I was thinking about this place as a display for the African snakes ... But , they had a few of them , the displays are very bad and dirty so is hard to see the snakes in that environment. Hard to find , no parking place , no signs and no information ... So don't waste your time.

A nice add on if you have the time after visiting the Nairobi National Museum. Most of the reptiles are behind glass, but the larger ones (crocodiles and alligators as well as some tortoises) are outside. Nice display of tilapia (fish)

A lot of different species of snakes. The central garden is open with poisonous snakes inside so make sure you don't fall in.

Beautiful specimen of the snakes. Large and well fed. However, snake cages were dirty, stank of feces, and there were no water in most of the small ponds. The exception is the centrally located snakepit. Trees, flowers, rocks, holes, water and lots of happy snakes of various sorts crawling around. They are doing their best with what they have, I...

Hadn't been here for a while, Pleasantly surprised museum is much more user friendly than before. The café / restaurant in the grounds is a nice place to sit (let the kids play in the large , safe grounds) and enjoy a beer or coffee in calm and peaceful surroundings only a few minutes from the city centre.

The snake park is interesting as you can see different types of African snakes, from Green Mamba to Python, and you can marvel how well snakes can camouflage themselves in their natural environment. You can also see the crocodiles being fed, but if you have small children with you dont take them to the crocs mealtime, as they are fed... More

They house many of the snake species that can be viewed through a glass window and it is interesting for both adults and children as long as you are not squeamish about snakes. They have a few lizards and tortoises too. There is restaurant opposite the museum which makes for a nice stop.

it is a place you should visit, regardless all reptiles in the glass boxes (which may be seen in anywhere else and different Zoos) there is an open area in the middle where I watched snakes, lizards, turtles chameleon, and geckos living together same as in the wild, eating each others, fighting, chasing it was a very good experience

This has so much potential, with some really impressive specimens. I have not seen a Gaboon Viper that large before. The puff adder is also an impressive size. There some large mambas which must be reaching their maximum sizes, but the place obviously is not receiving the funds it should. The buildings majestic but the exhibits are run down and... More
