The crocodile exhibit was cool, as was the ostrich exhibit, however one of the ostriches had a broken wing and appeared to have gangrene. There are horse rides for Ksh 200, and most lunch entrees are around 800 shillings. A nice environment, if I... More

See the Nile crocodiles, ostriches, giraffes, and even rabbits up and close. A great location for family outings, picnics, private parties, conferencing and team building located in Nairobi's leafy Karen suburb .

Went to Mamba village last week and would recommend especially if you have kids who are interested in nature. We had a very knowledgeable guide who accompanied us in the different enclosures telling us all about the crocodiles, tortoises and ostriches. Would recommend as one of the activities to do around Nairobi.

The Guide was superb, even allowed us to see crocodiles both young and old from closer than I ever imagined possible. They were dedicated to ensuring our safety while giving us demonstrations of the tremendous biting power of the crocodiles, one of whom bit and demolished a bamboo rod.

The crocodiles are very man and in different sizes. Friendly staff too. Good food at the restaurant to wrap up your trip. But the area would do with some landscaping

Well organised centre that offers a little bit of nature with excellent facilities to also have a meal. The guides are quite good, warm and friendly and create a safe environment to also handle the crocs and tortoises.

A lovely place to see crocodiles, tortoises, ostriches. You can get to handle a baby croc - quite safely🙂. It's a good place to relax after seeing the animals, they have a snack restaurant near the lake
