The secret of Nairobi National park is pure and simple, and get there early to see the lions having a kill or had a kill. Leopards are difficult to spot. Rhino are rare now. If you dont get there early you just going to have a ride in the bushes for the rest of the day. Best time to go... More

A national park in a city? Only in Nairobi Kenya!! Its a perfect place to visit as a family or a couple or a group. For bird watching enthusiasts and nature lovers. From the beautiful scenery and beautiful animals and birds. You have to experience it to know how amazing it is.

what i liked most was the convenience to reach the park from the capital city without to much long distance travel. by the way Nairobi itself is an attraction on its own. cool weather and other attraction sites from animal orphanage, museums, libraries full of history and much more from monuments of our fore fathers who fought for the independence....

We started our tour from the hotel at Karen at 6am and reached there by 6.30am. It took $50 for entrance inside the park. We first saw a rhino crossing in front our van. Our driver Fred was excellent. He can smell the Lion. We saw the full lion family and so many zebra, giraffe and soooo many animals. I... More

Only Nairobi offers a game park experience close to a major city, perfect for a day trip outing. No elephants, but plenty of other animals made the day delightful. I highly recommend visiting if you are on a limited schedule and cannot get to the other wonderful parks in Kenya.

We only visited the orphanage, but it was a good experience for the little ones. It's also a short tour which is good for them as well. Well worth the entry fee

For someone who doesn't have time to visit the whole country. You can just visit the national park at the next door in the capital of east Africa Metropolis

The park is large and it is very easy to find the animals. Since I was in Africa for the first time and on business purpose, I thought it wise to visit the park as time could not allow a visit to Masai Mara as recommended. The trails are easy short and guides were very good. The park is magical... More

It's insane that 8km outside of downtown Nairobi you have a national park!! Soon beautiful. Besides the antelopes, giraffe, zebras I was lucky enough to spot a rhino AND for the first time in my life a wild serval cat!!!!! That was the highlight of my week!!!! Must visit. There are some Masai men outside the park who will catch... More
