I have stayed in Nairobi for 4 years and during my 4 years, I have had multiple opportunities to visit the national park. Not even once I can say, it was a disappointment. The entire landscape and the ride is just memorable. The closest to this is the Masai Mara National Park but then the Nairobi has its own charm.... More

Easy and relaxing game drive near the city of Nairobi. The incredible Nairobi National Park lies within the capital city's limits and offers travelers easy access to some of Africa's biggest animals.

Nairobi National Park is close to the city, it provides an opportunity to view wildlife in their natural setting. In less than 2 hours we saw a wide variety of animals including a lion, giraffes, zebras, elands, buffalo, musk deer,rhinoceros and wildebeest

This park is actually in at the heart of Nairobi city. A 3 - 4 hour visit is probably enough the see the wildlife at this park. The fact that its in the heart of the city is a good reason to visit even if you don't have a lot of time. I was buffalo, giraffees, zebra, lions but no... More

Go early in the morning so you can see a good amount of wild life, leave your hotel at 6 to be there at 6.30 when the park opens. If you are going in your own car get a guide that can hear the radio talk of tour operators as they inform each other where lions/rhinos have been seen. Good... More

So close to Nairobi yet you feel far from civilization, the Park offered us a chance to experience the Africa we dream about. Though not replacing a true overnight (s) safari, we had great luck at seeing so many different animals including up close experiences with rhino, giraffe, water buffalo, zebra, ostrich, antelope, baboon, and even hippo and two prides...

This ticks all the boxes for a day's game drive. Yes it doesn't have the same vista's as Amboselli or the Mara, but it is on the doorstep of Nairobi. Swings and roundabouts.
