We got a coat from the country club for $50 return. 10 mins each way. Entry is $30 each. There are no facilities there, but you can walk around all day (basically by yourself) with the animals which include Giraffes and Zebras. We enjoyed it for a afternoon activity.

We had no idea how great this experience would be. Our guide just said we were going for a boat ride and a walk around the island. We were blown away by how close we could walk along with the animals. Zebras,wildebeests,waterbucks,impalas,and many more. This was also our first close encounter with giraffes on our trip. The sunset from the... More

We took a boat tour from a resort to Crescent Island and paid a guide to walk us around the island (you can walk without one but we wanted to hear what the locals had to say about the area, and there's no predators). Great place to see zebras and giraffes. We were literally like ten feet away from the... More

Had a lovely walk along this piece of land. Lots of animals - zebra, wart hog, giraffe etc, although they were wisely in the shade! Fish eagles too. Allow a few hours and take a hat and more water than you'd ever imagine needing! It's hot!

I would definitely say this not is a must visit attraction, if you have some extra time and $40 USD to spare then visit, otherwise I wouldn`t worry about going. You go for a walk and see wildebeest, giraffes, waterbucks, and zebras - all animals I saw at almost every park I went to. To me it was very redundant,... More

Walking with animals is something I never imagined I'd do, or even experience, until Crescent Island happened!! I love the place, and I'll definitely go back there, over and over again! Lucky me to see a 3 day old Giraffe!! And boy wasn't he tall for his age!!

Just do this! The multi-lingual guides will walk with you if you like, identifying animals and pointing out geological features, or you can hike on your own all over the "island" (actually a peninsula). We got to see baby giraffes, including a two-week old nursing from it's mom while we stood 30 yards away! Antelope, zebras, foxes, exotic birds and... More

I love this place for the price and convenience. It is just under two hours away from Nairobi, it's not as expensive as one of the national parks and it' safe to walk around with the wild animals because there are not predators about. Fantastic place to bring your out-of-town visitors.
