  • Snakes are considered in very poor conditions. Watch really worth while and very expensive ticket.
  • Walked in by ma best friend,...best experience ever
  • Snakes, crocodiles, alligators, and fish of many types. For $1,500 shillings ($15 USD) you get entrance to the snake park as well as the museum and the cactus garden is free right outside. Takes approximately 2.5 hours to go through everything at a reasonable pace, but if you really want to see everything and read, set aside 4 hours or more. There is also a wonderful bird exhibit in the museum with hundreds of stuffed birds.
  • It was fantastic being here, i had goosebumps all over and i was just imagining the snakes breaking the glass. If you want some thrill,this is the place to be.The guides are kind and they will tell you all you need to know.
  • Most snakes were in glass boxes and hidden. It lacks a variety of snakes.. the python enclosure got my top marks. Loved it.
