If you are afraid of snakes, this is the place to face your fears. It is located on the museum hill, just a few minutes from Nairobi CBD. The entrance fee is KES150 for kids and KES300 for adults. The fee combines the entrance fee for the museum and the snake park. The snake park is right behind the museum in a beautiful botanical garden. They have quite a variety of snakes. You can be able to read about them on the slabs next to their habitats or you can have the tour guide take you through. The park I like the most is also the part that scared me the most. I got to put a huge anaconda on my shoulder and got some pictures taken. The snake is quite heavy and it moves slowly while it’s on your neck. It was a mind-blowing experience to hold the anaconda. 10/10 would recommend for the adrenaline junkies.
