The singing of my next visit to this friendly, lovely place is the norm at my place.... My kids enjoyed themselves as much as I did and for that reason my plans for the next visit is over due. If you love the animals then this is the place.

The close proximity to park makes Nairobi national park "the best park in the city". there are good roads in the park hence it is accessible even with small private cars.

We took the Safari from Nairobi, in Kenya. The Driver of the Land Rover went out of his way to make certain that we saw wild life, every day, and sometimes in the evening. In October, the migration is still in progress. The most exciting thing we did was to take the hot air balloon ride at dawn, over the... More

When I booked our trip to Kenya, I was left with a 24 hour time frame in the Nairobi area and I needed to find something nice to do with my family. I opted for Silole Sanctuary (silolesanctuary.com), thinking it would be close to the park and yet not in the middle of nowhere. What a big mistake, now we... More

This is no Masai Mara, but it's only a 30 minute trip from downtown Nairobi. Go early and you may see big cats. We were there in the middle of the day. We still saw rhino, giraffe, impala, baboons and zebra. As far as I know, there are no elephants in the park. It is a good half day trip... More

LOVED interacting with such beautiful creatures. Once of my favorite experiences! Make sure to take pics close up of their faces. They are too funny. Great to do with the kids.

Although nairobi national Park has lost much of its attraction over the past two decades due to humen development encroachments on the park, it is still a great experience for those visiting Kenya but with insufficient time to visit the larger and more famous parks like the Masaai mara, the Aberdares or Tsavo. Great opportunity to see lions, buffaloes and... More
