Remembered visiting this a long time ago when I was little and took my family back to it. It hasn't been updated for decades and is in poor condition.

We had a whale of a time with crocodiles. Even we were allowed to carry some of them and we took pictures. A good experience we will not forget for a long time to come.

As a foreign tourist in Nairobi, you do not go here to see crocodiles and ostriches. The crocodiles are captured and lazy. The ostriches are fenced but at least they move around and you can get nice close-up pictures. If you will just stay in Nairobi and not see more of Kenya, instead visit the Nairobi National Park to get... More

I go to Mamba village every so often. It is beautiful, with a man-made made in the shape of Africa. We always have lunch at a table near Somalia(by the lake) There are also really nice private bandas to have a great family lunch. There is also great fun for the family: crocodile park, boat rides, camel and horse rides,... More

Good place to spend your day (morning to afternoon) with kids. Lots of activity. Unfortunately food is disappointing. The Lake is great. There are plenty of Crocodile. The Ostrich was really in poor state. It was injured, seems not being looked after properly.

The Mamba Village has beautiful grounds, grassy with tables to eat and relax. Other than that, the restaurant's food is average. Moderate pricing. OK service. The exhibits are poor. The large crocodiles are bunched into a few pens. The guides prod them to get a hiss or them snapping at the stick. The ostriches are only three now. One died.... More

I was interested in seeing the Nile river crocodile and boy, did I see them. The fences are not high at all and the creatures are massive. Peter, my guide, was really well informed and entertaining, and he had fun practicing his Spanish with me. I didn't like the ostrich experience, as I could see the ostriches were really not... More
