If you don't have time for a more extensive safari at the great parks in Kenya, this is something that gives you a glimpse of what you are missing

Proximity to the city and the animal orphanage as well as rangers restaurant and the great drive looking for wildlife...must do stop over in Nairobi.

“Three hour drive and we saw Rhinos and a lion”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Thirty minutes from our hotel door and only a short time in the park, we saw black and white Rhino, lion, zebra, giraffes, cape buffalo, wildebeest, etc. No elephants in this park, though. I'm very glad that we came here.

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

The Giraffe Center is a fun place to visit; I am not a Karen Blixen fan so I can only give it a so so. If you've never been on safari the National Park is interesting but not many animals.

“Well worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

We had a Sunday in Nairobi on a business trip so we hired a driver to do the tour - elephant orphanage, giraffe center, Karen Blixen Museum and Nairobi National Park. It was a day well spent! Although I've been to the park before, this time we even saw lions! The Karen Blixen is a must for any "Out of Africa" Fan, while the giraffe center and the elephant orphanage allows for some close interactions with these wonderful creatures. Doing all four in one day is possible without rushing.
