Arusha Snake Park

The collection of snakes and other reptiles here is the main draw, but there’s also a corny yet informative Maasai cultural museum with mock-ups of home and bush life, which you’ll visit with a Maasai warrior. You can also take a 30-minute camel ride (per person Tsh15,000) to a Maasai village. It’s 25km west of Arusha along the Dodoma road. Dalla-dallas to Monduli can drop you at the gate (Tsh1500, 45 minutes).

If you’re fascinated by snakes and reptiles, a Meserani Snake Park tour is a must for your visit! Located 20km/13mi west of Arusha on the way to the Serengeti and Ngorongoro center, you’ll have the chance to see some of the most dangerous snakes in the world, such as a Black and Green Mamba, Egyptian Cobra, Puff Adders and much more. That’s not all ─ you can even hold a real live snake!

During your Meserani Snake Park tour, you can also take a 30-minute camel ride to a Maasai village and visit the on-site Maasai cultural museum. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to see rare snakes and reptiles most people will never have the opportunity to lay eyes on.
