Easily accessible and fun for kids and adults too. They have variety (snakes, Crocs and aquarium area). Took my almost 3 yrs old niece and 6 yrs old nephew, they did not want to leave which earned me some "Cool Auntie" points.

There were few snakes and they looked more like inmates than animals in as close to their natural habitat as possible. Needs improvement!

My kids loved this park which is attached to the Nairobi National Museum. I've never seen this many active snakes before! It must have been the cool weather because they were slithering all over their cages. Pretty impressive. They could have been in better cages because the whole place looked a bit run-down but it was worth the visit because... More

You don't pay much for entrance, but I feel like they could have done more with the display. If you have been to a snake park already there is nothing new to see. Most of the snakes are just behind glass and no attempt is made to create a habitat for them. It actually makes you sad seeing them like... More

Snake park was a big disappointment. If you have been to snake parks before keep away from this one. No wow factor. Not much to learn. Parks in Europe is even better...

Not onoly fun to visit but a little scary too... Love the special signs as well as the information of the various snakes you can see. I think it is perfectly safe but one shoould be careful. Our children found it a fun place to visit as well.

All the animals here looked, to me, really depressed, with crap environments. Expensive. Right next to the National Museum so we had reduced entry as a double whammy.

This small reptile house displays mainly crocs and snakes. If you want to see some of Africa's most deadly residents close up, you can do so in safety. If you find one of the keepers, and offer a generous tip, you can get around the back to handle some of the non venomous snakes

This place has been neglected.Has the potential to attract a lot of visitors if it was refurbished and more animals/reptiles added.There are only a handful of those.The location is convenient and the grounds are serene.However,everything else is mediocre.
