“best of urban safari”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Everything is extra ordinary!!! The only thing maybe should be done is add the phone numbers of the main gate on the receipt. so that in case of an emergency a person knows where to call.

“See the big five in a matter of hours!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

For $40 US you can see tons of wildlife up close and personal. After three hours in the park I saw half a dozen lions, a troop of baboons, three ostriches, four giraffes, a rhino, and several herds of zebra all within ten feet of the car. Just make sure to get there when the park opens at 6am or you'll miss the lions. While a taxi works just fine, a taller vehicle might make for better viewing.

“Wildlife up close”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

The best way to get optimum views of animals is to hire a guide; they know the best spots in which to get up close to the animals. We were able to get so close to both zebras and giraffes that you could touch them. We also saw two rhinos, one with a baby, heaps of orangutans, antelope, a civet and and a variety of magnificent birds.

“Overlooked Safari Park in Nairobi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

I have been on many safaris but never did I think to go to Nairobi's park that is actually part of the city. You can even see the city in the background while on safari. I think it is the only one like this in the world. I had time to kill so I had a diver guide take me there. I was completely surprised. They even have a tented camp that I had lunch at.Other parks / reserves do not have many rhinos. I was shocked to see on this 2 hour trip 6 rhinos. I also saw a cat I have never seen which was a Serval. This is a good place to go if you are waiting for your international flight which may be late in the night.

“Good compromise safari”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

If you only have limited time in Nairobi and get to do one thing, do this. It can be done in half of a day, and you are guaranteed, to a variety of wild animals.
