We did not expect to see much in a park so close to Nairobi. But we saw lions, giraffes, zebras, babbons, rinos, buffalos and many other animals. Great for the kids as a first safari experience.

The central tourist attraction of the Nairobi is another must to do in the city. Well protected by guards and staff. The area is huge and safari could be done on open minibus or jeep. Although no one is allowed to step on the ground in the park. Great assembly of animals from lion, giraffe to ostrich, foxes, rackoons etc.

Three of us ot there early in the morning and bought our tickets and Maps as advised. We spent 3 hours trying around and trying to locate some animalsin a poorly marked park and seeing only Giraffes, Buffalos and lots of other smaller game and birds. Eventually, we gave up and came back out to grab some food and get... More

Nairobi national park is just a few minutes from the city centre and you can see the skyline from it. The park was big yet not comparable to other national parks. I went there at 9:30 and spent 6 hours. For the first hour I saw nothing. But then a bit later things changed, but not a lot. I got... More

This is my third safari and it was an amazing experience. The best!! In previous occasions (Botswana and Swaziland) I'd seen some animals but in this Park I've seen dozens of giraffes and zebras, hundreds of buffalos, lions, elands, baboons, crocs, hippos, impalas... you name it!! And it's so close to the city. But go VERY early and stay long!!

It was a step of faith to completely trust the Internet when engaging someone in a third world country, but we found that Mr. Anderson Kenga, owner of ARLOM KENYA SAFARIS, was not only a family man, but a man of integrity in keeping his word. Whereas other companies we contacted did not reply promptly, he was punctual in every... More

GREAT! So close to the city yet so far. Clean air and wild animals minutes from city center! Truly amazing. Despite some inconsiderate other visitors who throw trash out the windows of their vehicles and others who GET OUT OF THEIR Vehicles along the road tracks which is forbidden. The Park is amazing. Recent roadworks have frightened some wildlife to... More

In case you don't have time to go to the country on a Safari trip you can always try this place which is a condensed version of an actual safari. The main access can be messy when there is a lot of traffic.

We spent half a day as it was the most accessible park during our 2 day stay at Nairobi. We were not expecting to see the big four here, having read about it before, but there still are quite a few animals including the lions, giraffes and leopards. We saw giraffes (easy) and the usual wildebeest, Ostrich, deers, many birds... More

When I first visited Nairobi in eary 1990, it was almost a given that zebra and giraffe would be there to welcome us on the drive back to the city from JKIA. Today its very rare, but not impossible, to spot giraffe on the road to the city as you leave the airport. However, the Nairobi National Park has all... More
