Really nice park, perfect half day excursion, you enter at 6.30am and at you are at home for lunch. Always seen lions (untill 10 of them, with cubes, male, femeles hunting). Just missed the leopard. Beautiful the wildlife around the small lake and coming back in the direction of the hyppo pool

so, i'm not an early morning person, but the park is not far from anywhere in Nairobi - particularly at that time of the morning, and i thought - what's the worst that could happen? well, truth be told, not alot of downside on this one - you can see crocs, zebras, giraffe, wildebeest, impala, hyena and countless other animals...

Nairobi nat. park is a great place to go for a sunday afternoon drive. If I am correct, together with Nakuru National Park, it is the park in Kenaya having the highest concentration of white rhinos. You are nearly guaranteed to see at least a Rhino! Unfortunately and sadly, Nairobi's sprawl has year after year affected the numbers of wildlife... More

Why travel for hours to see wildlife when it is so close....good place for lions, rhinos, giraffe.. Fees can be a little expensive for non residents (check KWS site for latest) otherwise pack a picnic and head out early morning or evening. Nairobi has plenty of taxi drivers willing to take you at a reasonable price but far better to... More

Looking at fabulous wildlife in a national park with a city backdrop is unique and what Nairobi National Park offers. It shouldn't be missed. I went here for a full day on the last day of a four week birding / wildlife trip and was delighted to see about eighty (80) bird species, about twelve (12) mammal species (including a... More

Nairobi National Park is, I think, unique. It's a genuine national park - a slice of the Mara, with wild animals, fantastic views, and everything a Kenyan national park has, within 10 minutes drive of my accommodation. It's important, if you'r thinking of going, to remember that it's not a zoo or a safari park. There's no guarantee you'll see... More

Lioness within 15 feet…. Could be the best way to start of the review for this national park. The 4 hours’ drive within the forest and grass land and small hillocks was amazing. We were not lucky to get the view of cheetah, but lioness, giraffe, zebra, ostrich and packs of gazelle delighted us with their appearance. If you don’t... More

Basically most who want to go to the Nairobi National Park want to see lions, and there are lots of lions there to see, but they hunt at night and sleep by day, so if you want to see them be at the park gate by 0600 and enter with the early birds.... If you sleep in and don't get... More
