What a treat on a Sunday morning to leave home and be in the park in half an hour... saw tons of wildlife and our guest was blown away.

The best animal-viewing is first thing in the morning, but, unfortunately, everyone also knows this. The park hasn't organised themselves to be able to sell entry passes quick enough at these hours, so you sit around for half an hour to get in, which sucks when you get up before sunrise and aren't a morning person. So cool to see... More

An early 6am start but what an opportunity, we saw 10 lions, girrafes, rhinos, zebras etc. Definitely recommend the use of a 4x4 vehicle both for covering the pathways and the height advantage. 5 stars, short drive from the CBD.

This our BIG wow factor! we were able to see the BIG 5 is what they call it when you visit the park. This was a genuine park, the animals definitely live in a natural habitat under the circmstances (the park is in the city) the care takers work very hard for this to be possible.

Never tire visiting the only national park within 20 minutes drive from the CBD! Lovely place to spend the weekend with friends and family

A visit to the park in February was very depressing as didn't get to see much besides arid land and dried out or drying out remanent green. The occasional sighting of an animal came after long gaps of time.

considering the wealth of wildlife Kenya has, this park is nothing special, animals are in limited pens and seem very unhappy, especially lions. the positive note is the free roaming monkeys people can interact with

This place is good for lazy safari people who does not want to drive outside Nairobi. For finding the right gate to enter the park you may expect to drive around, to be checked with security, military, police and who knows which type of uniforms they are wearing....once you park your car, they will start shifting you around from one...

Always a nice place to visit even if one has done it several times before. Having grown up near the Park I always make a point to visit the park at least once a year. The experience never disappoints. Early Morning visits are recommended as animals like to shelter from the sun during the day and one may not be... More

I must confess, when my friends suggested a weekend barbeque at the Nairobi National Park, I told them what a boring idea. Trust me, that weekend was the most amazing experience I have had in a long long time. The park is serene, breathtaking. Having your fun and watching animals in their natural environment, where else can you experience that,... More
