Nairobi Snake Park Historical Background
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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
