Beautiful park, feels like a million miles from the city. Saw many animals, including lion, crocodile and hippo. Be aware there are no elephants in the park!

This was the highlight of my trip - worth visiting over and over again. Of the big 5, the only one I saw was the buffalo, but I did see lots of giraffes, zebras, ostriches, deer and a few others I couldn't identify. It's an experience worth having (and didn't cost too much) and I would visit again several times... More

It has everything except the elephants: too close to the city for these unstoppable creatures. Considering its proximity to the city, it is a very agreeable park to visit and one can even see some more species here than in other parks

we went very early at 7, but it was a bit late, so it's better to be before to see some animals like the hippos outside the water. But we were very lucky we saw 3 out of the big 5, we were told that there are no elephants and we didn't see the buffalo. We met when we get... More

Booked through the Trib Hotel, Our tour guide, Benjamin Kamau, knows exactly where to find the animals, and Very knowledgable about the animals, worth every penny. And the tour was in a brand new Range Rover.

Safari adventure in the city. I will definitely recommend this. Just few minutes drive from the city proper, we've experience adventure that we only see in movies and national geographic channel.
