It is amazing to find lions, zebras, gazelles, giraffes, ostriches and other majestic animals living in the wild yet just on the edge of Nairobi proper. Fantastic photo opportunities without a lot of travel.

A chance to see wildlife up close! Riding our own vehicle. You can leave the car only in designated areas (picnic area, the ivory burning site...) It's a real shame to see litter on the sides of the road, or around the picnic sites, though...More

If you aren't able to go on safari, or are short on time in Nairobi, this is the place to go. We lucked out on going during the week when the park wasn't so crowded. We had some good sightings, including rhinos. It's best to...More

Lions, rhinos, wild cats, antelopes and hundreds of birds. Everything spotted in a 4-hours trip, 30mins (with the traffic) from Nairobi's city centre. Really a must-see if you don't have time to go to Masai Mara or Amboseli. And it's definitely not a zoo, but...More
