Visited some time in October and did not disappoint, even for a non-conservationist, this is truly a must visit if you find yourself in this part of Kenya. Furthermore, its roughly a kilometer from Kitale town!

I loved the snakes species around the museum especially the rock python and the vipers. I also enjoyed the bird species such as the turacco

We visited the museum because we had a couple of hours to kill in Kitale. The main exhibit hall had some lackluster taxidermy, with the cheetah being a personal favorite. Some artifacts of cultural significance were on display, and several showcases were empty. The crocodile...More
