Snake park was a big disappointment. If you have been to snake parks before keep away from this one. No wow factor. Not much to learn. Parks in Europe is even better...

Not onoly fun to visit but a little scary too... Love the special signs as well as the information of the various snakes you can see. I think it is perfectly safe but one shoould be careful. Our children found it a fun place to visit as well.

All the animals here looked, to me, really depressed, with crap environments. Expensive. Right next to the National Museum so we had reduced entry as a double whammy.

This small reptile house displays mainly crocs and snakes. If you want to see some of Africa's most deadly residents close up, you can do so in safety. If you find one of the keepers, and offer a generous tip, you can get around the back to handle some of the non venomous snakes

This place has been neglected.Has the potential to attract a lot of visitors if it was refurbished and more animals/reptiles added.There are only a handful of those.The location is convenient and the grounds are serene.However,everything else is mediocre.

Despite the lack of signage, the fairly run down displays and the poor animals caged, this was interesting and cool. I enjoyed looking at the variety of reptiles on display and only wished the glass was cleaner for a better view! A nice addition to the day after the national museum.

Quite sad place. There was few snakes in small and dirty boxes (glasses were so dirty, that it was hard to see through) and also crocodiles in small cages. We felt very bad for those animals.

The reason I went to Snake Park is the combined ticket they sell in Nairobi National Museum. The standalone ticket is 1200KES, while the combined ticket (Museum + Snake Park) is 1500KES, therefore I thought why not give it a try? Turned out the place was not worth visiting at all. First of all, there were not too much to... More

A large range of snakes native to Kenya and very interesting for a visitor. with good descriptions and background. Would recommend it those wanting to see beyond Kenya's other wonderful wildlife and see their snakes, and most are highly venomous.

We try and visit snake park every 6 months to support it but must say I was very disappointed this time round. It is very run down and has veryyyy little snakes and marine.
