“Torn and very old looking....”
Reviewed 26 January 2013

I have been in Snake Park last week and got very much disappointed because of the poor condition. I almost felt like somebody has to help these snakes because it seems like they have forgotten and been left alone. There are not many visitors neither any guards inside. It was hard to see the snakes cause of the dirtiness of the windows....there are no info about the snakes, they are just poorly displayed. It took for us to no more than 5 minutes to tour the park.

“Fun experience”
Reviewed 20 January 2013

I went to this as part of my visit to the Nairobi National museum and it was probably the highlight because it was interesting to see the variety of snakes, amphibians and turtles on display. All the snakes are behind an enclosure but you can still get up close to them. The turtles are in an open enclosure in the centre which is really nice. A great place to take pictures!

“A dissapoinment.”
Reviewed 12 January 2013

Many of the poison-snakes cages were to small and overcrowding for the poor animals, and dirty. Especially one with black mambas who through themselves around in what I associated with a bit of panic.

“for some one with a fear of snakes, this was bearable!”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

liked that we could see the smaller snakes not in cages, so i could actually not be so fearful that they would harm us. but the bigger snakes were in the glass houses just slithering away and looking harmless until we saw how big they were! there were lots of varieties to look at and they all looked well fed, thank goodness! they were in so many colours and sizes and some had shed their skins which was a big gross at some point to look at! But it was a fascinating experience to be so close to such dangerous animals and actually have the guts to look at them! but 3 or so cages didn't have any snakes, they should make all of them available so people can see as much as they have paid for.

“Snake Experience”
Reviewed 1 January 2013

The Snake Park has a collection of different kinds of snakes. There are also some other repetiles that are maintained at the park and are displayed for the public. Each snake has a summary of information including how harmful or harmless and the most common areas to find them. They are quite a sight.
