The Snake Park is a good place to get acquainted with the reptiles of Kenya. Of particular interest were the cobra and mamba snakes. While the exhibits are somewhat old fashioned they are informative and we enjoyed the visit. We also had an opportunity to...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.

This is definitely very well kept, and the staff know what they are talking about. Its a bit creepy if you don't like crawlies... but the kids love it! The National Museum shares the same space - its great too! Also if you are lucky...More

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

Snake park was a big disappointment. If you have been to snake parks before keep away from this one. No wow factor. Not much to learn. Parks in Europe is even better...

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
What is the entry fee to Snake Park? If the fee is included in the entry fee of National Museum, what is the entry fee of Museum? Whether crocodile farm and reptile farm are all included in one fee of National Museum? It is unfortunate that no review describes these features and most of the reviews have concentrated on discouraging the readers not to visit this park.

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
