Since I was at the Nairobi Museum, I visited the Snake Park because it's right next door, and because I really wanted to see the mambas and cobras. The snake specimen at the Snake Park are wonderful, but the habitats are dismal. Only the crocodile...More

My mother used to bring us here when we were children. It hasn't changed much over the years but the snakes and fish etc were well fed and looked to be healthy. It was getting a lick of paint while I was there and perhaps...More

This experience was not worth the extra cost to visit whilst at the museum. I have seen better in Australia although the snakes and tortoises were different.

Easily accessible and fun for kids and adults too. They have variety (snakes, Crocs and aquarium area). Took my almost 3 yrs old niece and 6 yrs old nephew, they did not want to leave which earned me some "Cool Auntie" points.

This reptiled shelter appears neglected from the word go. The exhibit snakes though average in numbers have good information on the placards but there seems room for upgraded conditions.

There were few snakes and they looked more like inmates than animals in as close to their natural habitat as possible. Needs improvement!

My kids loved this park which is attached to the Nairobi National Museum. I've never seen this many active snakes before! It must have been the cool weather because they were slithering all over their cages. Pretty impressive. They could have been in better cages...More

You don't pay much for entrance, but I feel like they could have done more with the display. If you have been to a snake park already there is nothing new to see. Most of the snakes are just behind glass and no attempt is...More

There are separate tickets for the museum and the snake park or combined. We enjoyed the museum too so I would suggest you get a combination ticket. The prices are on their website which TripAdvisor will not let me post... More
