  • There is some amount of chaos. I am never a big fan of wilderness in cage but since I spent time being here I landed up seeing the pace. They have some of the coolest collection of snakes that u can only imagine seeing it so close. My favorite was black mamba.
  • Good stopover between arusha and the parks. Quite nice campsite meant for overlander. May feel crowded if full. Bonus: Free visit of the snakepark if camping. Only very simple food for dinner.
  • For those interested in seeing and touching an amphibia like crocodiles, snakes etc, and learning about maasai tribe by visiting the maasai museum. It is perfect place
  • ....had a great time with the family!!!.....learned a lot about snakes, it was quite enjoyable!!
  • A place where information is outstanding on knowing the different kinds of snakes and their venom.
