We stayed four total nights at Meserani Snake Park. The campsite is great with clean facilities, hot water, great bar, and good food. The staff here are excellent, all well trained and very personable. I loved chatting to the Maasai guards and felt safe with them all there. Ma, DJ, and Deon are some of the nicest people we have...

This place is stuck in 1993 in a bad way. You can not pay by a card. They ask you to join them on the Facebook without the internet access. Usually people are coming after safaris ( no internet) and it is terrible to understand you can not check your mails again. Rooms has no facilities, but very clean. Toilets... More

The Meserani snake park is a must see. However, do not visit it before going on safari, or you might cancel your plans. Boas, Mambas, Vipers and Pythons can be very dangerous. And you might meet them all on your safari. The place also serves as a clinic for snake bitten locals. They produce antidotes to most of the common... More

We camped here for one night before going to the Serengeti, and stayed in one of the rooms for a night on our return. The owners/hosts are fantastic, the bar is great and lots to keep the kids interested onsite - camel rides, snake park (included with the accommodation), Masai museum, the snake bite clinic and even just playing darts...

We spent 2 nights camping here (good facilities but dusty), Ma & BJ run the place and are fantastic, it's the best bar in Tanzania - don't miss it! We had a Masai guide show us around the small Masai museum (outside local ladies sell jewelry etc.), the snake bite clinic which is doing incredible work providing free treatment to... More

I'm a professional biologist, and while I love visiting zoos, it's rare for me to learn much that I didn't already know. Meserani Snake Park was an enjoyable exception. Admission was $15 and included a personal guide who told me a little about every animal at the park. He was great at answering my questions and was extremely knowledgeable. The... More

Since we didn't see any snake during the safari we decided to visit the serpentarium and was very nice, we learned a lot about all snakes, turtles, lizards and crocodiles. They also have a Masai Museum but didn't like it that much...
