Nairobi Snake Park Historical Background

The Nairobi Snake Park was started in 1959 to meet a popular attraction and to provide a research facility on reptiles, breeding habits, skin casting, food and reaction to climate change. It had been noted that such studies were difficult to be carried out in any other way.


Live snakes were exhibited on experimental basis at the entrance of the Museum in 1958 and were a great popular attraction. When the popularity was noted, the plot of land in front of the Museum and down to the Nairobi River was acquired by the Museum Trustees for the development of Botanical gardens and exhibit live snakes.


This idea was developed further in 1959, when money was made available for a combined Snake Park and Snake study centre surrounded by a botanical garden and war memorial garden on one end.


By the end of 1960, the Snake Park was almost completed using funds made available by the War Memorial Committee. The Snake Park was opened to the public in January 1961. It attracted a lot of interest from the public, researchers, conservationist and educators.


The Snake Park provided a popular amenity, as well as being most useful from the research point view, for both reptiles and plants, since a part of the gardens was to be devoted to indigenous flora. Tortoises and lizards were introduced that following year (1962).


The Snake Park also attracted a number of researchers who donated a diversity of specimens locally and internationally. Specimens were brought in from India, Madagascar, Europe, and USA and South America. Among the donations was the American alligator brought in 1967 and two crocodiles in 1974.
