To have a chance to quite literally see and experience animals in the wild anytime one desires is uncomparable. Nairobi is the only city in the world to have a National Park within or in such close proximity to its city limits. The park is easily accesible and the internal roads are easy to navigate even on your own. Will... More

A must to do in Nairobi. Helpful driver-guide takes you from the city center and for four or five hours you are in the middle of wilderness but just 20 minutes away from the city. I could "shoot" 4 of the five big ones with my camera... Worth every cent it costs... (100 USD I paid)

The main roads are hardly passable in places for saloon cars and this is the dry season. KWS use just a little of the money you got from the surrender of park land for road and railway construction, to fix the roads. Saloon car drivers should be compensated for the repairs due to unavoidable suspension and undercarriage damage.

Nairobi National Park is in the heart of Nairobi and a jewel in the crown of the city. There is always something to see, be it a land tortoise or a lion or rhino. It is best to buy a sandwich from a local cafe and take it in with you. There are a few picnic sites and my favourite... More

It is incredible when you are in this park to realise just how close it is to the city. Each animal or scenery shot shows the city skyline in the background - a real contrast. There is a lot of vegetation so having a good guide is very helpful as there is a lot of game - just not always... More

This was a fun day out, twelve hours of driving around, picnicking, watching animals and enjoying nature. We arrived at sunrise, paid the exorbitant non-resident fees, and within the first minute of our drive through the gate saw a huge male lion walking in the road, roaring his head off and looking right into our car window. Wow! We also... More

When you buy snacks at the canteens in the compound before you begin your safari, do not expect to pay via buy goods on Mpesa as the stewards refuse this form of payment, or by credit card as you can only use this method for purchases above 1k The toilets are quite messy. During the day most of the animals... More

You can see the city at parts of it, and that adds to the amazingness of the trip. it's wild and wonderful. There are so many wildlife. I'm told that coming in the morning is much better, and I did come in the morning, and the amount of giraffes, ostriches, zebras, even rhinos and baboons, not to mention all of... More
