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...

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...More

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.

A large range of snakes native to Kenya and very interesting for a visitor. with good descriptions and background. Would recommend it those wanting to see beyond Kenya's other wonderful wildlife and see their snakes, and most are highly venomous.

We try and visit snake park every 6 months to support it but must say I was very disappointed this time round. It is very run down and has veryyyy little snakes and marine.

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
