This is a day trip in my opinion. There is a large variety of animals but as with all game drives it is luck of the draw what you see on the day. We did take a picnic but be advised eating at the allocated spot is a risk as it is full of baboons. Perhaps best to eat in... More

A very accessible park close to the city centre,whilst in the park you can see the skyline of Nairobi in the distance Go early in the morning to stand a chance of seeing the lions Best vehicle to use is an open topped land rover so you get great views and the vehicle can cope with the deeply rutted and...

To see animals you can see them very early in the morning that means you need to wake up early and be there by or before 6am to see the hunters!

I stayed here for a few days. It was nice but in reality one day would have been sufficient to see everything. I stayed here after I went on an incredible safari with Gamewatchers Safari at the Porini Camps. After such a great safari experience, the National Park was a let down. This is nothing against the National Park. I... More

A great place to spend a day if you are in Kenya for a short visit and have no chance to visit other national parks. A few miles from the city center and easily accessible by car. You are guaranteed so see some members of the big five if you visit early in the morning or late in the evening.... More

The big plus is that it's in Nairobi so it's close, and gives one the opportunity to drive through an 88 square mile reserve and see some of the animals and areas that normally you'd only see on a lodge safari drive or well out of the city area. What you see as to wild life is pot luck and... More

I just took the shuttle on a Sunday. I do not know if it is offered on other days. The previous review was accurate but I will add a few comments. The shuttle departed downtown a few minutes before 1:00. Be sure to arrive early. I was in the area around 11:00 and the bus was already there and staffed.... More

Great time exploring Nairobi National park and the Safari Walk. Saw a few of the Big Five but he park does not have elephants, therefore its not possible to see them all. All things considered it was great seeing the animals that we did see in a natural habitat. A great experience for an individual or famil. Cost varies depending... More
