The Snake park is practically part of the Nairobi National Museun, but you have to pay extra, if you want to visit it. Unfortunatelly you can't see much of the snakes, as the windows haven't been cleaned since ages. Better avoid it...

This experience was not worth the extra cost to visit whilst at the museum. I have seen better in Australia although the snakes and tortoises were different.

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 are separate tickets for the museum and the snake park or combined. We enjoyed the museum too so I would suggest you get a combination ticket. The prices are on their website which TripAdvisor will not let me post... More
