I think the key to enjoying a short time in the park is a good game driver. The one we had was on the phone and talking to other drivers to find animals. In one afternoon we saw lions, zebras, giraffes, cape buffalo, ostriches, elan,...More

Be sure to hire a local driver to ensure you see all of the wildlife. It is truly magnificent! I recommend you use the restroom before entering the park. The Maasai warriors are just outside of the gate and for a small tip they will...More

We saw all big animals! it's a pity there are no elephants there but the lions are majestic!! You have to go very early in the morning, after dawn to be able to see them though!

Having been to other National Parks in Kenya I would thoroughly recommend this Park. It has a very unusual backdrop of the city in parts but there is an amazing array of game. There are certain parts where you could be in the middle of...More

Mornings in Nairobi National Park for sure if you haven't already been to an African national park. And Masai market for souvenirs. Rest of the day as per your interest and trip advisor rankings of things to do!
How did you contact Will Knocker as a guide? Thank you for your advice.

Sunday of next week ( means 19th March), I will visit Nairobi National Park. I will go alone, so does anyone know how to find a group to join? My friend told me that every Sunday, I can go to the gate of Nairobi National Park and find a group there, but she does not remember exactly. Does anyone go like this? Or could you recommend a tour with resonable price for me? Thanks in advance.
