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!

We were primarily interested in the National Museum, but you could buy a ticket to this attraction. In retrospect you can skip it. It has lots of snakes, reptiles, etc. Needs lot of work and really does not have any residents that one has not seen in good zoos in other parts of the world.

I went there when I visited the Nairobi National Museum. The combo ticket for non-residents is 1500. They have a significant number is snakes from all over africa, including black mambas. Also there are turtles and frogs. There is the option to hire a guide which I did not take. I recommend it to do it in at the same... More

Our guide was so nice and very good at answering questions, but personally I felt the animals did not have enough room.

Opportunity to overcome my snake phobia, but didn't work but great to see these deadly creatures close up. Expensive for what it is for entry fee for international tourist and the park is showing it's age with better facilities for both the visitor as well as the creatures needed to update this venue. However interesting visit and informative by a... More

The Snake Park is a below average exhibit of snakes, etc. The glass enclosed "tank-like" structures are unkempt, and the animals are OK, but not an enjoyable time. It is nice to see a large boa or cobra, but not enough to recommend the park.

if you like viewing "serpents" of all sizes, color, length...all you think about snakes, visit snake park. It is a bit scary, mostly because of the rattling and hissing, but it is safe because they are housed in glass...no worry!! Very exciting indeed.
