Snake Safari Baringo & Kakamega

Spot incredible snakes in the wild including the green bush viper (pictured).

Nairobi  – Lake Bagoria  – Kakamega  – Nairobi

Spot snakes galore

Look for red spitting cobra, flowered racer, green bush viper and many more on this expert led snake safari in partnership with Taylor Ashe Antivenom Foundation.

There is nothing so exhilarating as seeing a snake in the wild. A guided snake safari with a skilled snake handler allows you to safely spot and appreciate a wide range of snake species. Their biology, habits and habitats are explained, and you will have a chance to touch the snakes, and ask questions. All snakes are released back into the wild, except if they are of medical significance and needed for more extensive research.

This trip is organised in partnership with Taylor Ashe Antivenom Foundation, a non-profit organisation based in Watamu, Kenya, helping to save lives and improve livelihoods by preventing the impact of snakebites through education programmes targeting both adults and children. A global shortage of effective antivenoms, particularly for African snakes, means that understanding snake behaviour and preventing snakebites is a big factor in the fight to support the World Health Organisation in their strategy to reduce the impact of snakebites by 50% by the year 2030 meaning education is key.
