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.

Nairobi National Park is located approximately 7 kilometres from Nairobi, Kenya's capital city. In spite of its proximity to civilisation Nairobi National Park boasts a significant varied migrating wildlife population and it is one of Kenya's most successful rhinoceros sanctuaries.

The new rules requiring visitors to pay via mpesa or credit card make the ticket buying process quite tedious if you are unaware beforehand, which was the case for us. The park is nice and has the usual attractions that it's well known for. There was however some construction going on; the wooden trail is currently being replaced with a... More

Having been to the Masai Mara, I did not expect much with this park on the outskirts of Nairobi. Boy was I wrong. It was fantastic! We saw everything, but also went with a guide and a big old SUV/4x4. I would recommend getting a driver as they can get to the deeper parts of the park, where we saw... More

That is right, there is no big five here, but we saw so much that we did not mind. Got out early enough to catch a pride of lions and if I never see a zebra again, I am completely ok with that (there were just that many out there). I highly recommend visiting this park if you want to... More
