Many different animals on display. Not really a wildlife park...most in captivity. You get to see many different animals. Worth a visit.

It is nothing short of miraculous this park harbors rare black and white rhino, as well as more than 30 lion, and leopard. One can also see the Eastern white-bearded wildebeest (different from blue gnus of the great migration) plus young zebra, Cape buffalo, eland, and colorful birds. Best viewing and photography is as early as you can manage; get... More

The park is a vast and nice Savannah with interesting animals. It is a good place to go with family and get the kids to see the animals first hand in the wild. The park is not far from the airport, the city and from nice hotels. It was refreshing.

If you have not a lot of time to go on safari, than here is the solution. The best is to go early in the morning or late afternoon, to watch animals. I was very lucky and have seen many different animals.

After a lengthy break in East Africa, we decided to treat ourselves to one final safari before flying home. We saw black rhino and lion up close, as well as wildebeest, hartebeest, zebra, Masai giraffe, black-backed jackal, buffalo, eland, baboon, warthog, dik dik, Thomson's and Grant's gazelle, impala, rock hyrax, ostrich, secretarybird, grey-crowned crane and kori bustard.

Amazingly convenient way to "safari". Actual animals... wildebeast, zebra, lions, giraffe, living IN the CITY.... We actually toured around in a taxi.. Couldn't believe it! Sure it would be great to do a longer bigger safari but given out time constraints, this was amazing.

If you truly want to see animals in the wild go to other parks in Kenya, specially Masai Mara region. This one is a poor option for safari. Very expensive for what you get, $42 entrance + fee for driver. You can hardly see animals.

Having a game park in the city is a great benefit if you have limited time but it's incomparable to the Mara or Mt Kenya. We saw a lot of animals and the guide tried hard to find some lions but no luck.Admittedly going in the middle of the day wasn't too smart but they still took our money,

An incredible place to see wild animals right in the middle of a busy city. This park was founded in about 1946 and while traffic swirls round and planes fly over you can experience a wild life paradise
