Owner description: Bio-Ken is a research centre, which deals with reptiles, especially snakes and snake-bite. Located less than 5 minutes drive from the hotels in Watamu - Kenya, it houses the largest collection of Snakes in East Africa and is open to the public. There are about 127 different snake species in Kenya. Of these only 18 have caused human fatalities and only another 6 could kill you. Another 10 could cause you a lot of pain and the remaining 93 or so, are non-venomous nor dangerous.

We had a knowledgeable and interesting guide who explained the characteristics of each snake. What was particularly fascinating was the amount of time available to access an anti-venom serum - or not!

Worth every shilling - highly informative and fun. The kids loved holding the snakes and chameleons, but balanced by clearly very important scientific work the centre in undertaking
