i am scared to death of snakes, i was tricked by my man into going for the visit but if you are a snack lover, you will find a variety of snakes.

To those of us like me who fear and hate these animals, it's SCARY!!!!! However,maybe I should say a word like (LUCKILY) the snakes are tamed and caged in the glass houses so they wont touch you. You will be able to learn about the various species of snakes found in the country. Worth checking out.

I took my little ones here for a visit to the museum and snake park, was reasonably priced at just 300/- for a citizen adult and 150/- for citizen child combination for both, however as a resident I paid double at 600/- and non-residents pay 1500/-!!! I personally would not pay that at all, however the museum was interesting, there are people to explain what the displays are and a little about the history, the snake park itself if tired and old, there are empty displays and the fishes leave a lot to be desired, the snakes ate interesting though, the kids loved it, however the glass is thin and scratched and it is very small to walk around. I think the habitats for the snakes and crocodiles need to be a little better for the animals sakes and you no longer get to hold one, which I was disappointed at. All in all, would visit once if you have residency or citizenship, or if your visiting and have a little time and some spare cash.

The snake park is an add on to the National Museum. This in itself was a little odd but we thought - why not. They have a great array of species but the display cases are very old & scratched. Needs to improve standards for both the reptile residents & guests.

There were a wide variety of interesting snakes as well as alligators and turtles....

All were on display and were visible, but the glass of the enclosures was badly marred which affected clear viewing of many of the snakes.... The courtyard was amazing and the closer you looked the more snakes you could spot climbing around in the vegetation!

There is also a garden attached to this tour which shows all the different variety of vegetation in Kenya, as well as an area that shows plants and their traditional medicinal uses...

This tour can easily combined with the Nairobi Museum Tour
