#12 of 26 in Parks in Nairobi
Part of the National Museum of Kenya, Snake Park is a rescue center and sanctuary for reptiles and snakes. In addition to puff adders and black mambas, the park shelters several local fish species, turtles, lizards, and crocodiles.

  • I absolutely loved the snake park. It’s a great place to go post museum—for only 300 additional shillings ($3 USD). They have quite a few snakes, a little aquarium section, some crocodiles, and then humans—guides who are willing to give you some good details on every animal. If you make your way to the museum, be sure to visit the snake park after.
  • There's not much to see of the snakes. Good place for those looking to learn and not for fun. The aquarium was very pretty though
  • A superb collection of reptiles, experience a python around your neck. Nice rooms with fresh water and sea fishes. Outstanding for kids
  • I put a snake round my neck! Never ever thought I would... And not die.. Haha.. Must visit if you love snakes and fish.. Oh! They also have an amazing aquarium
  • Good variety of snakes, crocodiles, lizards and aquarium on display. There is an experienced snake handler available if you'd like to handle one.
