About Bio Ken Snake Farm

Snakes alive! Stroke a slithery, scaled reptile and watch venomous snakes being milked.

Bio-Ken Snake Farm is a research centre housing fascinating reptiles and dealing mostly with snakes and snakebites. It houses the largest collection of snakes in East Africa and is open to visitors.

As well as touring the facilities and the reptiles, visitors can go on day safaris to look for snakes in their natural habitat with trained guides. Bio-Ken Snake Farm is regarded as the best of the snake parks along Kenya’s coast.

Treading lightly upon the Earth
Bio-Ken operates a snake removal service for the locals. Their ‘Saving Snakes’ program ensures that unwanted reptiles are released into a more suitable spot in the wild or housed at the Snake farm for study. Snakes are also milked for medical research and for making anti-venom to treat local victims of poisonous snakebites.

Up for a terrific scaly adventure? Join experts on a Big 5 Snake Safari – searching for the most impressive African snakes – pythons, boomslang, puff adders, cobras and mambas!
