we went by a regular car with open roof, we have seen lions, giraff, zipras, gazilles, monkeys and a lot of birds, safari car is better than the other section of safari walk, safari walk dosen't worth it,

I went there for half day safari, I was alone and could not get a group safari. I think this is a trick of travel agencies to earn more money out of single travellers. It is a nice place but in 3 and half hours I saw only few wild animal and did not feel good since we are disturbing... More

Had just a day free in Nairobi and spent four hours here with a private van trip. For the distance from the city the trip is well worth it if you are not going on a safari trip further out. Saw Rhinos, zebras, and Lions!!

We saw a lot of animals! Kids loved it! Getting into the park can take a bit of time, but once you are in, it is really a breathtaking experience!

We stopped in to the park as we didn't have the option for a full out safari. It was very good and there were quite a few animals. A bit of disappointment there were no elephants, but plentiful in other animals and birds. Roads are bad throughout the park, so it's not a quick drive-through.... and put on some bum... More

This is a review specifically about the Nairobi National Park Public Shuttle. The Parks department (KWS) runs a public shuttle on Sundays (and possibly other days?) that tours the park. The KWS website provides no information on this service, so I just want to assure people that it is real and give a few details. The shuttle picks up in... More

This was my last stop before leaving Kenya. I had already been on several game drives and found this one to be a rewarding experience. My encounter with a Black Rhino stands out in my mind especially.

We booked this through the hotel reception. Price was ok. Our driver was a nice fellow and good knowledge of animals and the park itself. We saw everything you could possibly see in few hours and only 20 kilometers off the Nairobi downtown

This is a wonderful park and to think it is so close to Nairobi. I went with 2 business friends and our guide, Peter who you can find on gmail.com with the id pmhappytours2 . Both my friends had been to the safari in South Africa and said this was so very much better. I was extremely impressed by the... More

Before leaving for a safari, we went to the Nairobi National Park. It was delightful, including the moment when a male baboon jumped into our safari vehicle, grabbed a half-eaten granola bar and jumped out. We were treated to lions walking along the road, elephants, zebra, impala, gazelles, zebra, wildebeest, giraffe, ostrich, eagles, vultures and hippo. It was well worth... More
