Great combination of grassland landscae plus Nairobi skyline. Went very early in the morning to see animals and did not expect to see so many zebras. I was not lucky to see the lion, even though me and the driver looked for quite a long time. Totally recommended!

Pretty impressive to have three (white rhino, lions and leopard) of the big five in large enclosures with good viewing. Very safe! Enjoyable experience!

Don't let its proximity to the city give you the impression that somehow this isn't a proper wildlife destination - it's a worthy addition for anyone with a few days in Nairobi and is blessed with an excellent range and number of animals and birds. We saw lots of giraffe, zebra, antelope, buffalo, wildebeest and varied birdlife on our morning... More

Spent about 6 hours here on an afternoon in mid-July. The park has great herds of plains game - particularly hartebeest, and we also saw buffalo, eland, impala, zebra, giraffe (touching the car!), ostrich, bushbuck. We also saw a black rhino, a couple of white rhino, a lioness which climbed down a tree, another trio of lions (2 males and... More

Driving thru this incredible park on 3 occasions we were astonished to find such a wealth of animals within earshot of planes and visibility of the skyscrapers in downtown. Great foresight to identify this location as a protected animal sanctuary, now 68 years as so identified Keep alert to the many surprises you will see as you travel thru

Being so close to the city it is always a surprise that there animals at all. Went round in about four hours and saw lots of animals including lions and rhinos. The giraffe and zebras were over-represented however. As a first introduction to the game park, the NNP remains worthwhile.

A park so close to the center of Nairobi with a lot of wild animals. You just need 2 to 3 hours to see most of the animals. Advise : enter at the main gate and exit in the one close to the airport (just 15 to 20 mn). Great to have a look before you catch your plane !
