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

We visited the snake park after visiting the museum. I would have been disappointed if I had gone out of my way to visit only the snake park as the staff was apathetic, preferring to chat and remain glued to their cell phones than to provide any guide services or information. The snake enclosures were quite small and not the... More

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!

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
