Nairobi National Park OR Lion Park in Jo'burg

I am on a business trip to Nairobi & Jo'burb in 2 weeks. I will have 1 weekend free and I have the option to chose from Nairobi National Park OR the Lion Park in Jo'burg. Unfortunately, I am not able to goto Masai Mara due to shortage of time.

Please advice what would be a better option.

Nairobi National Park for sure. The animals are in the wild. The lion park in JNB is lions in fenced yards.

Also nnp u will have a chance many other animals including rhino, giraffe, zebra, impala, wildebeest, buffalo, warthog, etc.

I agree with roadworrier!

In addition, at the entrance to the Nairobi National Park there is an animal orphanage - a very nice walk and even though animals are in enclosure, it is very educational. You can also visit The David Sheldrik Wildlife Trust is you have time and learn about amazing work they do! www.sheldrickwildlifetrust.org/about_us.asp

Giraffe Centre is another great place - you can learn about giraffes, see them and even feed off your hand! They have purple tongues :) You can do everything in 2 days (Nairobi Park + orphanage // David Sheldrik + giraffes)

All in all definitely Nairobi National Park!
