Nice gift shop offered with lots of great items for sale. The viewing platform to see the giraffes was fantastic!

An interesting insight into Karen Blixen and her life- can be combined with a trip to the Elephant orphanage and the giraffe centre.

With the Nairobi skyline as a backdrop for wildlife photos taken within its boundaries, Nairobi National Park is a truly unique venue. From watching lions hunting impalas to providing closeup photos of a male bushbuck, my most recent visit was as enjoyable as those I've previously made. Not only a great little park for Nairobi, but one of Kenya's finest... More

I was about half way through the book at the time of the visit. Seeing the places she described helped me continue with the not-so-easy read.

Its so great to have these so close within reach of my residential area. Only downside is the price discrimination of locals and international tourists. Locals get a bargain. All three can be done in one day.

Hard to believe how many animals we saw considering the parks proximity to Nairobi including lions, giraffes, zebas, buffalo and others.

National Park is lovely - best to get up and get in the park for sunrise - you get to watch the animals waking up and peeking over the hillside - pack a picnic and be wary of the hungry monkeys, they'll steal anything including bags and hats!!

I was expecting a larger place, the visitors area is very small and all you do is feed the giraffes. Yes it is nice, but they could have something else there.

Did a full day safari excursion. Were lucky with weather (no rain) and saw lots of antilopes, zebras, buffalos etc. Did also come very close to a lion.
