Went on Safari walk at Nairobi National Park. Excellent way to spend a few hours and see animals up close.

“Beautiful but a little boring?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

Nairobi national park is a really beautiful place. Not to expensive to Get in. But i guess you Pay more to Get a car and a driver. Be sure to Get a 4 weel drive, and With a look out through The roof.
We had a magical day there. But Found it a little boring After a while. A lot of antilopes, gazelles. Zevras and buffelos.
To se Lions, be sure to go when The animals Are hunting!

“Remains a good place for a first visit to a national park in Kenya”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

In spite of Nairobi's increasing expansion and population, this is still a place where, with a bit of luck, you can see a fair sample of Kenya's wildlife except for elephants. It is however under serious threat since it is surrounded by the city and the remaining corridor in and out of it is increasingly used for agricultural and horticultural expansion and road infrastructure. Its wildlife population varies according to the seasons but we have seen some wonderful things there on our many visits including lions, cheetah, even a leopard, rhino, plains game, birds,...). Definitely worth a visit, especially for visitors to Nairobi with no time to visit the more distant parks.
