“a place for animal lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

Although we had only a short stop over in Nairobi we decidet to spend what little time we had on the Nairobi National Park. And didn't reget that decision. Whereelse do you find a National Park that close to a city centre (about 10 km). We let the hotel make arrangements and therefore probably payed more than neccessary but had a very friendly driver and an excellent guide who patiently answered all our questions. The orphanage unfortunately was closed for the public but we saw lions, the Black Rhinos and lots of the amazingly colourful African birds. All together a great experiece.

“Was amazed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

We had the most amazing day in the park and saw Lions (3 males & 1 female), two types of Rhinos (Black & White), water buffalo, giraffes, zebras, Thompson gazelle, baboons, impalas, Hartebeest (kongoni). We did not have the budget or the time to go on a Safari so I was pleasantly surprised and happy with our experience. Well worth it - especially if you have an experienced guide. Negotiate well for the cost of the van and driver. Do NOT pay hotel prices.

“Good guide and many animals sighted”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We took the Nairobi National Park bus from the center of Nairobi, in front of the Development House on Moi Street going to the park every Sunday at 1.30 PM and were given a excellent game drive lasting more than 2 hours seeing many animals all for the fee of $50.-person for non-residents. The bus returned us to the city center after the game drive.

“African safari”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Inside the park you can only move by the means of wheels, because Nairobi National Park is a big territory with wildife. We've been lucky to see lions, zebras, rhinos, giraffes, and lots of african birds.

“Perfect for a sundowner and for those who don't have time for a longer safari”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

I love going to Nbi Nat park in the afternoon, take a picnic sundowner and enjoy some wildlife and beautiful scenery so close to home. I recommend it to anyone coming to Nairobi for work and wanting to get a taste of the Kenyan parks. There are lions, cheetahs, leopards- very hard to see. There are rhinos, but no elephants. Enjoy!
