I found this disgusting and depressing. The snakes are in small glass tanks and the giant cobras in a bit glass tank. Crocs and alligators are in spaces too small too. The reptiles do not look well.

If you need to have more knowledge about the snakes this is place to be.We need to educate our society about the importance of these reptile sin our ecosystems for the sake of our future generations.

You will see only a couple of snakes in very bad situation with a very bad smell in the air. Never worth it

This park can be combined with a visit to the Museum, however there is a reason for that, its coz there isnt too much to see here...yes there are a few snakes, crocs etc...but for the larger part its quite a let down...can be skipped.

A nice place very near the Nairobi city centre, You get to see some of the major types of snakes of Africa. The park is also adjacent to the famous Kenya National Museum hence easy to combine a tour of two places together. Its surrounded by good natural African trees that makes the place very serene.

The exhibition is good. theres room for improvement, especially in the alligators and crocodiles cages. The snakes are confined in small premises. However, if you are at the National Museum, buy the combined ticket and take 40 min to watch the reptiles.

Snake Park Nairobi is located just adjacent to National Museum and Botanical Gardens Nairobi alongside Kipande Road, about 1.5 km away from city center. If you walk along Nairobi River, just for a stroll towards west, you will first reach John Michuki Memorial Park, then Snake Park and then Botanical Gardens and then National Museum. It is a very ordinary... More

It hosts tones of information present day and pre-historical. Not clean but very informative. The snake park is small but hosts sizes of snake never seen before in live!
