See the animals (and maybe overcome some of your phobias) at Kinyonga Reptile Center, a sanctuary that specializes in some of the world's most misunderstood creatures. Seeking to support populations of snake, spider, lizard, and chameleon that have been greatly reduced in recent years, the center approaches conservation through education and experience, offering animal interactions and demonstrations. The facility hopes the visitors will overcome their fears by feeding and holding the animals, and learning more about their behaviors and habitats.
