The snake park near the Nairobi National Museum on museum hill is not worth a visit. The park is small and worn out. A lot of the terrariums are empty. The glass of the terrariums with a snake is very dirty. So, even when there...More

My first time to see a snake face-face was at snake park, thank God they were tamed.I was really terrified but it was such a great experience, there were many varieties of them some which are very beautiful.

I found this disgusting and depressing. The snakes are in small glass tanks and the giant cobras in a bit glass tank. Crocs and alligators are in spaces too small too. The reptiles do not look well.

If you need to have more knowledge about the snakes this is place to be.We need to educate our society about the importance of these reptile sin our ecosystems for the sake of our future generations.

You will see only a couple of snakes in very bad situation with a very bad smell in the air. Never worth it

This park can be combined with a visit to the Museum, however there is a reason for that, its coz there isnt too much to see here...yes there are a few snakes, crocs etc...but for the larger part its quite a let down...can be skipped.

The exhibition is good. theres room for improvement, especially in the alligators and crocodiles cages. The snakes are confined in small premises. However, if you are at the National Museum, buy the combined ticket and take 40 min to watch the reptiles.

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
