Simple Budget Hotel Rooms. The rooms are simple, clean and comfortable. Please note all rooms are not self contained but you shared the bathroom with the other guests in a common area. The owner, Mama Nyoka, is very friendly and customer centric. She ensures your stay is comfortable and shares her stories at the place. The establishment though could introduce a card payment system which will come in handy especially for foreign guests.

Guide talked you through the various snakes, where they're found, eating habits and how dangerous they are to humans. Our guide was really engaging and the info was interesting, walk around lasted about 45mins. Crocodiles and tortoises to see too. Afterwards we spent 10mins doing guided tour of the Maasai cultural museum which was the right amount of time and info, again friendly guide. $40 for 2 of us probably a bit overpriced for 1 hour entertainment but the snake park does provide free healthcare to anyone in Tanzania with a snake bite so you feel your money is going towards something worthwhile.

Hopefully you visit the snake park before going on safari,

It's a bit depressing after seeing animals in the wild. Cages, even with snakes, are sad.

Very interesting explanation about snakes living in Tanzania with presentation of different species. Most of the snakes are not dangerous. However, the center includes a unique in the country clinic curing snake bites. Masai museum, accessible with the same ticket, explains life and traditions of this tribe.

This was a really awesome, unique place to stay. It is owned/run by Mama Snake who is a cool lady. She and her late husband created the place from scratch a number of years ago. Her late husband was a doctor who started a free clinic there, for snake bite victims.
They have a small area where you can get a tour and see a number of different snakes, other reptiles and a few birds. Our guide was very informative and it was cool to learn about the different types of snakes.
There is a wide open field to camp. We got to stay in the rooms which were nice and clean. The bathrooms are in a building just down from the rooms which were also well maintained and clean.
The bar is really cool. Mama Snake will be your bartender. There are a lot of different choices of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. Beware of the Mama's Revenge shots...they burn.
Just outside the snake park there is a small museum of Masai culture for which you can get a guided tour of as well (15-20min). This was very interesting to learn about their culture. There are also some huts that have Masai women who sell homemade jewelry and other trinkets. Be prepared, there is a whole row of them, we only saw the first one at the front and felt bad we spent all our money there instead of spreading it around. There are also camels that you can pay to ride ($1usd pp). They seem to be well taken care of, but just be prepared it's a short ride of about 200 meters round trip with a guide leading the camel.
Make sure you have tips ready for the Snake Park guide and Masai museum guide.

The Meserani snake park is a must visit if your are in Arusha region. They have all varieties of snakes which are home in Tanzania. You can visit the Masai museum and a cattle market next to the park. There is a wonderful bar with good food.
The donate a lot of money to the local community and help the Massai with a clinic
