“Great day out...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

We have wanted to visit this national park for some time now and we finally got there a few weeks ago, after a small issue at the main entrance we finally got into the park and I have to say we had a great day.
With the back drop from the city, it seems strange but there we loads of animals to see.
The place is large, so we bought a map at the entrance, shame it never had pictures of which animals where in the park so we could mark them off as we seen them like other places we have been to, so it was a reasonable price.
The orphanage was an added bonus as we got there as they were just feeding the animals at 3 PM, so go to see 4 of the big 5 getting fed.
In summary, a great place if you haven't got time to go further a field like Sweet Waters or Sambura.

Our trip to Kenya in 2011 was an experience organized by Mango Safari that could never be matched! Nairobi had lots to see the first day

“You haven't experienced Kenya until you've kissed a giraffe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Loved all three places to give you the true feel of what Kenya was and is all about. Guides at all three places were excellent. If you have only a short time in Kenya, this gives you a wonderful overview of what's in store, when you can stay longer.
