We actually camped here as part of a tour we were doing, which included free access into the park! It’s small but had some really cool snakes which were actually quite active! Happy enough to have a wander through as it was included but reading below that an adult pays $20...I’m not sure I would have paid that!

This is the place to be for the best snakes viewing and the staff will teach you all you need to know. If you can't handle the thrill there is a camel ride and cultural center too.

Just out of Arusha and with some time to kill we decided to check this place out. I wanted a first hand look at the venomous snakes from the region so I knew what to watch out for and avoid while on safari in Tanzania. Our guide,Heaven, from Soul of Tanzania picked us up at our hotel and delivered us to the snake park. Upon arrival we were met by a very informative guide who explained each species of snake and answered all of our questions. We were able to see clearly in all of the enclosure and everything was neat and clean. If you have the time to stop in it was a fun hour or so.

I led a group of high school students on a trip to Tanzania, which included 3 nights camping at the Meserani Snake Park. The facilities were great for a campground, we got our laundry done at a fair price, we rode camels, we volunteered in the local Masaii schools (our favorite part of the trip), and Oli helped us with everything we needed the whole time.

Visited with friends 2018 when we had some free time to fill. Entry was 20000 shillings each which included a tour around the park with a guide who would tell us about each of the snakes etc. If you like snakes it is quite interesting. There's also crocodiles, birds and tortoises to see. All the birds there that are kept in cages are there because they are injured or needing rehabilitation before being released back to the wild. They were very clear about this because in the past they have had complaints. After looking around the park you can hold one of the smaller snakes if you want to. This was quite fun and unique and probably the highlight of the tour. At the end our guide told us that if we were happy with the tour we should tip him. We knew this was the custom and were planning on doing it anyway but weren't that impressed at being asked straight up as soon as the tour ended. You definitely do not need to book a guided tour with any company you can just show up and part of the entrance fee includes someone from the park taking you around and showing you everything. There is a cafe/bar in the park which is decorated with things from previous visitors to the park which is worth a look. We didn't buy any food or drink there though. Overall was a fun 1-2 hours when we had some free time. Visiting once is enough for me though I don't feel the need to go back in the future.

We camped here for one night on our tour. The showers and toilets both worked fine. We had free admission to the Masai museum, which was small but interesting, and the snake park, which I skipped.

Behind the Masai museum, there are quite a few huts run by Masai women selling trinkets.

The big attraction here is the bar which is very quirky. Our group did lots of shots and closed the place down.

The snake park itself is really good, you can really discover all the typical African snakes and crocodiles. We did the visit with a guide/snake handler who gave us a lot of explanation. Interesting!
The Massai museum is not that interesting and the guide there was really insistent on tips.
The overall price (20USD) is expensive.

It took a $50 car ride (roundtrip for our family of 7) and about and hour but it was well worth it. Where else could you see an incredible variety of snakes and amphibians, see a Masai educational center and ride a Camel! Sunday's at 1PM (I believe) is live feeding time for the snakes which is sort of like a car accident in that it is not pretty but you can't look away, so is the circle of life.

On the other hand, if you are passionate aboout snakes, the staff is VERY knowledgeable and you'll have a great experience. There's also a Maasai museum that explains the Maasai way of life. You can go for a camel ride and shop in the Maasai shops in the back.
