If you do not have time to go on a real safari, this park is for you. It is close, cheap, and easily done in a half day. You won't see elephants (unless you go to the Sheldrick Orphanage) but you can see most everything else.

This is a fantastic opportunity to have a full-blown safari experience almost within the city centre! I doubt if there are more than 5 other cities in the whole world that offer this possibility. For pressed traveller low on time and money, this is very doable by adding a day to your next business trip to Uganda. This will be... More

A day tour of NLP works out great if you are short on time and can't make it to Masai Mara. Booked the tour a few days before with Phoenix Safari and asked for George as our guide. He had been recommended and he is excellent. Eagle eye George. I saw white and black rhinos, buffalo, lions, gazelles, maribou storks,... More

Lots of animals to see just a couple of minutes from the city - Lions highlighted against the city backdrop, Hippos, Rhinos, Giraffes, fantastic. Easy to navigate on (mostly) good tracks even after quite a bit of rain - 4WD recommended.

This park is located in the city of Nairobi. It is very big and animals like zebras, giraffes, warthogs, monkeys,baboons, antelopes, and gazelles are visible almost everywhere but rare animals like cheetah, lions, etc you have to be very patience. If you don,t want to take the car their is a KWS bus which they charge a small fee and... More

We weren't very lucky and got to see only 1 out of the Big Five, a buffalo. Plenty of giraffes, zebras and impalas, though. We had a picnic in the park and having warthogs running around us while we chilled was a pretty surreal experience. Overall, never having been on a a safari before, I absolutely loved it.
