Unbelievable to realize a wildlife park is right next to a city center. You can see the skyline from most of the park. The entry charge is $52 and then the LandRover was $70 which can be split by about 8 people if you get that many to join you. Personal autos are allowed but the "roads" are really treacherous...

This was fun to go to and it's so close to where I stayed. Got there before the gates were open. It was still dark! Quite exciting to be first one on the roads inside that day. The junctions are numbered so you'd have to work hard to get lost. Will certainly go there again. It's so convenient.

We spent 5 hours on a 1/2 day game drive. After spending several days in safari in Tanzania, we didn't have huge expectations, but we're delighted with our visit. We enjoyed up-close viewings of a herd of nearly 100 Zebra, who casually crossed the road right in front of us. We saw giraffe all over the park, and in some... More

Yes you will find animals, but not all what you see in articles.... Hippo pool a must visit natures trail.... Encountered a BIG crocodile... right next to the river, hardly at a distance of 20 meters.... You must hire a big vehicle with open roof.....

Lovely picnic sites, nice way to spend a weekend afternoon. Got to see a family of lions which was pretty cool. Quite a few other animals to see.

I have always lived in Nairobi but I have never entered the National park. I always drive along Langata road without thinking about it. This one time My friends and I decided to go and have lunch there and also watch the animals.I was watching animals in the wild within a city as vehicles zoomed on the road. It was... More

A visit to the park ensures that you do not miss to see the wildlife. With antelopes aplenty and not forgetting the zebras, bufalloes and many more, the icing on the cake is the lions which you hardly miss on any one visit.

A great wildlife experience close to the city. We left our hotel at 5.30am and entered the park about 6.30 -7am. We were in a pop-top-van with driver and guide. It cost us US 90 for his van and services plus the entry fee charge to the Park. We were back at the hotel around 2pm. A very enjoyable experience.... More

An exhilarating outdoor experience in the wild. A visit keeps you in harmony with nature. The best park within a city. Do not miss the opportunity of a life time.

We went for an afternoon drive here straight from the airport which was convenient as the park is quite close by and you can save time travelling to and fro the city. The first few hours were pretty unspectacular with game viewing few and far between. We were a bit underwhelmed. However after around 5:30 as the sun began to... More
