Living permanently in Nairobi since 1984, we are frequent visitors of Nairobi National Park, where you can see all main animals of Southern Kenya, except elefants. The closest Park with elephants is Amboseli. Allow minimum 4 hours, best not mid-day. Include in the visit the main look-out and walk by Hippo Pools. Use the map with point numbers. Ask wardens...

This is a must visit tour, seeing the wildlife in their natural environment is very special. I shared a car with a couple which reduced the cost by 50%. The driver and guide were excellent, very knowledgeable and took time to explain the animals and their habitat. Some of the animals seen - lions, rhinos, giraffes(various species), gazelles, elands, baboons,... More

Nairobi National Park is an amazing way to get a quick safari experience, especially, for those on short business trip to Nairobi. Best time to show up is real early in the morning, preferably, at 5:30am. If you're late or if its likely to rain, abort mission. If you're not a Kenyan resident then remember to go with your passport... More

This is one of the most organised parks and you can easily find your way inside the park. It is always amusing to see the giraffes and the lions with the city multistoried buildings in the backdrop. Sighting is pretty easy and you can plan half a day around it.

This park is absolutely amazing. The visit to the baby elephant sanctuary and the giraffe center were the highlight of our trip.

It's a wonderful place to go and enjoy the wild without having to travel far from the city. But it's this proximity to a human settlement that may see it fade first from our memories then from existence.

Close to the city but US$ 50 per person. Our team went and in 3 hrs only an ostrich & maybe a lion from a great distance. While no one can schedule wild animals it was a disappointment due to the high cost and loss of an afternoon.

1. Time to Visit - Early in the morning when the park opens i.e. 6 am or from 4pm onwards. The reason being during this time the chances of seeing the lions will be more as they tend to come out on the streets. With the sun, the lions tend to enter the bushes etc. and will be difficult to... More
