Nice way to see some animals in the "wild" in Nairobi. Our party even saw the elusive rhino. Convenient to Karen and Nairobi. Easy day activity.

The perfect park to travel around in. There is so much to see and so many opportunities to see a ton. This wildlife park is one of my favorites in the world.

Mere fact that it is the only National Park located in a metropolis makes it a unique place. Game viewing can sometimes be frustrating but a worthwhile visit.

This was my second visit but the first in a long time. I had hoped to catch the KWS bus at 1400 - but this was during the July 2015 Obama visit and all normal service was disrupted. Nonetheless my taxi driver was encouraged to drive me around and the cost of paying him, his entry fee and my own... More

If you don't go to this park during Nairobi trip, you haven't been to Nairobi at all, I always wanted to go there after I read the Disney's Lion King cartoon movie setting was based on that particular park, the lion mountain, the greens, the hallow land everything is there, plus Giraffes and the Zebras, you may probably see the...

If you have not seen wild game before this is perfect for a one-day trip. Go early in the morning and make sure you find s guide who does not just follow the crowd. I've been there three times and seen something amazing every time. Lions twice!

It's an interesting park within 10 kilometers from Nairobi city centre and also along the the flight paths of international planes descending to Jomo Kenyatta international airport Nairobi. Have lions within it,buffaloes,girraffe and other herbivores

What a unique and overall simple experience to go on a safari and see wildlife in Africa - giraffes crossing the road in front of you, water buffalo splashing around in mud, zebras hanging out almost an arm's reach away (but don't try it!). When you go, you'll be on the lookout for lions and rhinos, which are the most... More

Nairobi National Park is right on the edge of the big city but packed with wildlife. It is worth taking a tour, which we got for $130 for the vehicle with guide, and there is a $50 charge per person to go into the Park. Some of the guides are very knowledgeable and not only help you find the animals,... More
