New Year's Eve in Nairobi

My wife and I arrive in Nairobi on December 30. We need to wait for the rest of our team, who arrive late on December 31. We are thinking of visiting the Nairobi National Park on December 31. Is it open? Is it a good day safari? Any hints on how to go about booking a driver? Do they have any at the park itself? What is the best hotels that are near the airport and park?

Also, what is the environment like on New Year's Eve in Nairobi? What about on New Year's Day? We need to find a place to stay on the 30th and 31st before traveling to Bungoma.

Dec 31 is a normal working day so NBI NP will be OPEN from 6.00 a.m. – 6.00 p.m

Hire out a Taxi for the day to take you to the NBI NP in Langata. Inside the compound is also Safari Walk & Animal Orphanage.

On New Years Eve, most big hotel//restaurants have a New Years Theme Party. Perhaps, you might want to spend New Years Eve at Carnivore (also in Langata).

Google up Aero Club for accommodation (also in Langata). Other hotels are Ole Serena, Panari, Eka Hotel & Wildebeest Camp.

How much is your budget, as there are two good accommodation options in Nairobi National Park, but would be in excess of $400 per night.

Keep an eye on http://www.kenyabuzz.com/whats-on to see what is happening on New Years Eve / Day.
