This Park serves a great destinations for people who are in nairobi for short trip, it gives an insight to how african safaries are. you can spot lions, many zebras, giraffes and many more to make your trip memorable. It's exciting when you book a safari vehicle and enjoy the whole day at park.

Trip of a lifetime. I saw everything but a lion. My driver took me everywhere. This park is huge. Animals everywhere. Amazing to see them roaming around in their own habitat instead of in a cage. It seemed like some were posing for the photos.

Nice wildlife park. Remarkable is to spot wildlife and see the skyline of Nairobi the same moment. We were lucky to spot two lions.

The parc is close to the city and offers a wide range of animals. I saw a lion and all others, except elephant, which they do not have. The parc is nicely done, proper and the tour good organised

We had a great time driving around the park and getting to see the different wildlife out there. I remember one time a giraffe came near the gate and it was an awesome welcome.
