We saw a multitude of animals and birds. Especially near the dam area. My only complaint is the bad condition of the roads in the park. They need to do some work on them. Especially since addmision fees are not cheap.

We did a 4 hour safari at the National Park. Amazing time! There is a ticket fee plus the sarafi fee so be aware of that. We have 7 lions

I definitely prefer being in a park somewhere very remote where there is just nature.... but, even though you see the background of the city (or probably because of this...) Nairobi Nationalpark is a wonderful daytrip being able to enjoy wildlife without having to worry...More

Hi Betty They do request to see some form of ID at the Park entrance. From a safety and security (ie anti-poaching) perspective, I think that this is quite a good idea. Regards Anton
