This park is small compared with Tsavo or the Mara . It is an oasis in the city and on the horizon you are conscious of the high rise buildings surrounding it and encroaching on it . Now the Government wants to run a railway through it -- on stilts. Conservationists are worried and want people across the world to... More

Nairobi National Park lies on the outskirts of Nairobi. It is a large national park, where one can see lions, leopards, cheetahs, rhinos, giraffes, impalas, warthogs, zebras, baboons and a host of other animals. Outside the park, there is also an animal orphanage (where one can see the big cats in cages) as well as an animal safari, where one... More

If u have a weekend to spare and can't travel to Masai Mara it's a good idea to visit the Nairobi National Park. Located about 10 km out of the CBD it's a mini Mara experience. The entry cost is Ksh5000 per person. If u love driving it's a good place to test ur dirt road skills. It's rare to... More

I took my nephew who loves animals to the Nairobi national park. He was 10 years old and together with other children visiting me from Uganda we had an amazing experience. We were able to see most of the big game without having to incur the costs of the far national parks like Masai Maraa! The children were touched seeing... More

We arrived early, a small team with children and hired a guide and the park land cruiser with open sides. We were already in the park by 6.30am. We were surprised by the variety of animals and birds we saw, including buffalos, zebras and giraffes including a young crocodile along the tiny lake. We had picnic breakfast on one of... More

Nairobi has a National Park within the city limits. To see the lions, one must have luck and be there early, by 6am, as when it gets warmer, they go and nap in the shady bushes. We were lucky to see 2 large male lions close to the road on our 2nd trip. I also highly recommend going to the... More

we have seen quite some wildlife including a lion.And we also came across Rhino's. But it was quite crowded in the park due to a local holiday.
