If you only have a short time in Nairobi, do not miss the opportunity to spend part of a day in the National Park. It is convenient and well worth the trip, with most of the African wildlife (sorry, no elephants) in display. We spent at least a day a month in the park, as it was a perfect escape... More

This was a lot of fun, we got to see so many animals! The guide was very helpful in explaining what the animals were and if they have a story. I will recommend this place, make sure you take water and food with you as it's expensive at the park.

Nairobi has grown up rapidly around the edge of the National Park and it is somewhat surreal to being viewing large game in the wild with a backdrop of the city. Access to the park through the main... More

its just 5 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi downtown...you can see lions, cheetah, deer family, buffalo, hippo, rhino, giraffe, ostrich, etc etc....no need to travel to mara or amboseli if you have limited time in Nairobi.

Very good Experience to see Animals and very existing to watch infront of us in few feet long. It will take minimum 4 hrs to cover maximum areas. We covered most of place inside the Forest with our Kenyan friend.

I had a quick visit of 3 to 4 hours to the park . It's near the airport and next to panari hotel. With a 4×4 car you can enjoy and see many animals like zebra, giraffes but unfortunately i didn't see lions.

Apart from seeing almost all the big five, I have for the first time good indept information and more... More
