Nairobi Mamba Village
“Mamba Village” – Crocodile Farm- is famous for its crocodiles and is home to the giant Nile crocodile. It is located off the Langata – Karen road, 13 km drive from Nairobi.
The best day to visit the Nairobi crocodile farm is on Sundays. It’s the only day visitors are allowed to see the crocodiles get fed at 4:00 pm. Watching the crocodiles snap their jaws as they grab their chunks of meat is such an amazing and thrilling experience. On the roof-tops and trees, scavenging birds keenly awaiting the chance to steal their share. If lucky you get the chance to hold a baby crocodile in your arms – it’s the scariest yet most amazing feeling. The crocodile ponds are all separated into different groups; adults, teenagers and small baby crocs – this stops the youngsters from being eaten by the bigger ones.
At the far end of the man-made lake is Ostrich Park where you can view these giant savanna birds at close range and even get selfies.
If you enjoy water activities, you can take boat rides or rent paddle boats and enjoy mucking about on the lake. Other exciting activities include camel and horse riding plus a children’s playground with a bouncing castle. Alternatively just relax lake side in the Leisure Park gardens.
Nairobi Mamba Village Restaurant serves freshly grilled crocodile and other dishes (for those not partial to crocodile). Its unique interior and exterior African décor is lovely and the restaurant offers a breathtaking view as you enjoy lunch on the lawn alongside the man-made lake.
