It is amazing to see so many wildlife just outside a city. One can photograph a ostrich or a giraffe having the skyscrapers on the horizon. We manage to be just some 20 meters away from a couple of rhinos, by the small lake where they went to drink. Inside the lake was a hippo, and around it you could... More

The park itself is lovely. There are plenty of animals to keep you entertained. The roads are rough so bring a car that can handle rough terrain. The customer service though was terrible. It took us 30 mins to get our tickets. Not because there was a long line, but because their computer system is just that slow. The person... More

Went back after years and I must say the place has been run down! It has lost its glamour and not really worth it. The increased fees is a total rip off and what made it worse is the guards at the gate allowed us to pay and enter knowing very well the bridges were being repaired and so we... More

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
