“Good time spent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Little safari available in the city. Children will love to go there! Some animals we see at a distance some others very close to you. We can spend at least 4 hours inside there...

“Visiting the three attractions is a must for visitors to Hemingways.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

All three attractions are near by the Hemingways as is by the way the Karen Golf Club. A safari into the park can be done in half a day, seeing rhinos, lions and literally all game apart from elephant, but those can be seen at Daphne Sheldrick's Elephant Orphanage. The Karen Blixen Museum allows for a peek back into times long past, an insight into what life was like in Karen nearly a hundred years ago.

“Close Easy Safari”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

This was my second trip to Nairobi National Park. On my first visit in November of 2009, the animals were hungrier and appeared to be easier to see. Indeed on that visit, I judged the game run as successful as my game runs at Masai Mara. There was a drought at that time and wildlife clustered around watering holes. In July 2013, water and food was more plentiful and perhaps that is why the animals seemed more distant. Sill our group saw rhinos, lions,wildebeests and antelopes and many species of birds including ostriches. This park is so close to downtown Nairobi that anyone visiting the city should add this park to their itinerary.

“wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Nairobi National Park, Karen Blixen Museum and Giraffe Center are a must see if you are in Nairobi! Wonderful experience. You should try to go on a weekday as weekends are very busy!
