a cute-ish butterfly - Malindi

a cute-ish butterfly

the butterfly farm

The butterfly farm I visited was very near the ruins of Gedi: it's quite a small place with some interesting and colourful butterflies - but still it's far from being a palce that provides you a truly unforgettable and moving experience. Entrance was 100 kenyan shillings

Unique Suggestions: Go as an add-on after having visited the ruins of Gedi: they really are impressive. But the butterfly farm is just across the road - so it's worth taking in while you're there - mainly out of curiosity. Frankly speaking it's not worth the tour if you're not planning to see the ruins.

crocodiles fighting for food - Malindi

crocodiles fighting for food

the crocodile farm and snake park

In Malindi there's a snake and crocodile farm which could be worth visiting if there's absolutely else you can do (e.g it's raining). There's a cute giant turtle named Maria who loves bananas - and two very large and nasty crocodiles called George W. and Saddam. There's also 2 wild cats, several snakes, including the black mamba - which isn't black but blue-ish, and some iguanas.

Unique Suggestions: Go only if it's a rainy day and there's nothing else to do - it's really a waste of time unless there are no other options. If you have kids, they'll find the reptiles and animals quite nice. If you reall^y have to go, try to be there at 4 pm on wednesday and friday - they are feeding days - so at least there's a bit of action.
