Nairobi Mamba Village is located off Langsta Rd Nairobi Kenya. The cost of entry is $10 U.S. per person. There is an additional tip to the guide for a closer encounter wit the animals. Our tip was about $40 per person. This small park has Nile Crocodiles, Ostriches, and Tortious, in gated habitats in natural settings on the property. This space is great to visit for those who want to entertain their inner wild child, and have a close encounter with apex predators.
This park is East Africas largest crocodile farm….just an FYI to consider if you are a super pro-animal rights, vegan type person.
At Mamba Village for an additional tip to the guide, he will allow you to mimic feeding the crocodiles to be able to feel some of their power. For brave guests the option to enter the crocodile pin for an up-close encounter with the crocs hunting skills.
Watch the video…
In the video I’m basically annoying this large male Nile crocodile while he was trying to sunbath. When he goes for the towel Im amazed and startled by the feel of power this animal effortlessly posses.
A courageous, brave soul is required to enter the feeding pin for a closer observation of their power. I am not that soul, but my husband channeled the energy.
The crocodile is pulling the stick to pull the brave man closer to the edge and into the water. I think this nile crocodile has given thought over the years of how to pull humans in the water. My husband must have channeled a crocodile hunter vibe and won this tug of war. Fortunately for us, the crocodile skills do not succeed today. We both gained more respect for the amazing power of these animals. And are proud to say we survived an encounter with a Nile crocodile.
The nile crocodile has between 40-60 teeth, but it has no tongue. Inside its mouth is a big opening between strong jaw muscles. They typically hunt in the water along the edge of water rivers and canals. They fully submerge their bodies underwater, and wait for land animals to come to the waters edge to drink. The crocodile locks it prey in its powerful jaws and pulls it underwater to drown. Crocodiles are stealthy and patient predators.
“I looked a Nile Crocodile in the eye and saw a peridot green warm energy flow, very alert and aware balanced with stealthy type calmness. The jet black slit was full of instinctive lethal wisdom and patience.”
This tortious weights at least 50 lbs. and is a beautiful ole soul. His movements are slow and purposeful. He is a great example of natures way of showing commitment to move forward doesn’t require speed. It just requires the consistent action of forward movement, and acceptance it takes longer to reach the destination or goal.
Here are a few nature facts about The Ostrich.
- They are the largest bird in the world, yet they do not fly.
- They can run very fast averaging top speeds at 45mph.
- Ostrich are only second to the cheetah in the animal kingdom of the fastest animals.
- Ostrich can defend themselves by landing powerful kicks and have 4-inch claws on their cloven feet. Their kick when fully landed has the power to kill a lion or human
After a very full day of sight-seeing the beautiful “Green City in the Sun” has earned a place in our hearts as dope city with a cool vibe. Our action packed day of cool interactions with interesting animals was epic with respect to wildlife. We worked up a serious appetite. Our driver recommended we visit a unique all you can eat game restaurant called Carnivore.
