The park has a number of wild herbivores including giraffes, water buck, & onyx. It is also a great place for birders and a... More

The tortoises, lovely old creatures....'mzee kobe' in swahili. A perfect family outing on Saturday afternoon. I enjoyed taking a walk and having a good time with the good old tortoises browsing on the lush green vegetation at Nguuni, on your way to Kiembeni Estate, Bamburi.

This place could be better but I think the management should be more innovative and involved. Most of the fixtures seemed quite old and worn out. At least a well groomed guide would be a plus.

Any place where you can sit and have a one hour long conversation with a giant turtle is more than all right by me! Feeding giraffes also a high point. !

If you love birds just come with your pair of Binoculars and you will be amased on how many birds are around. If you are like me not knowing all by name, I allways carry my book so I know who I am watching.

I have been to Nguuni many times and I love the bandas, the "wild" feel and its serenity. The management does a good job of keeping the place clean and the facility is good for an afternoon out.with the family for play and Barbecue. The friendly giraffe, Ostrich and antelope found here add icing to the cake. Visit Nguuni and... More
