“Excellent local initiative...turtles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Don't negotiate on the entrance fee...these guys need every Shilling to run this project. It's a quite basic natural aquarium where Duli and his colleagues treat and help turtles to increase in population in the area. The knowledge of the staff is amazing. The project is also supported in small scale by volunteers / practicants from Germany and Sweden which seems to do also some kind of fund-raising. It's really worth while seeing and supporting the Mnarani Marine Turtles...but don't expect a Florida like Marinepark...it's Africa

“Kids liked holding the sea turtles”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2014

Kind of a run down place, but we went for the sea turtles and the hands on experience was worth it. The local guide seemed very knowledgeable and took his time to also show us the other tortoise exhibits there

“this is africa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2014

if you are looking for a building or anything...this is literally just a pond where they hold all of the sea turtles that needs extra care. You will have an opportunity to pet the sea turtles and learn about them.
