Snake Park Nairobi Entry Fees

In this post, we will look at the entry fees for Snake Park Nairobi. The Nairobi snake park is located adjacent to the Nairobi National Museum at Museum Hill, along Kipande Road, Nairobi.

The Snake Park Nairobi, which was first opened to the public in January 1961 with Jonathan Leakey as the first curator, was established to meet the demand for a popular safari destination and to provide a research facility on reptiles and breeding snakes. The snake park’s purpose is to inform visitors about the value of snakes in our ecosystem, the potential dangers of a snake bite, and how to avoid them.

Puff adder, Black mamba, the Egyptian cobra, the African rock python, and the Gaboon viper are just a few of the impressive snake species that can be found in Snake Park in the National Museum compound. The latter is a particularly unique snake species because it is known to have the longest fangs in the world, measuring 4 cm. The Gaboon viper is a friendly snake that only occasionally bites, and when it does, it is a serious medical issue. The American alligator, as well as other crocodile species, are among those that may be found in the snake park. Freshwater terrapins and tortoises are also on show. The major attraction of the park is a collection of aquariums that include coral fish from rivers and lakes in East Africa.

On a safari to the Snake Park Nairobi, you enjoy the interactive sessions with friendly reptiles and amphibians, like feeding the crocodiles, among many other enjoyable activities. Because there are so many different species of snakes, you can read about them on slabs adjacent to their habitats or hire a tour guide to take you through the area if you are terrified of snakes.
