Half-Day Nairobi National Park Safari from Nairobi with Pickup

110 reviews
Take a game drive and spot some of Kenya’s “Big Five” without truly leaving Nairobi on this experience. Ideal for those short on time in Kenya, this budget-friendly, half-day safari trip takes place in Nairobi National Park, a reserve close to the city where you can see lion, rhino, buffalo, cheetah, and more in the wild. A choice of departures and return hotel or airport transfers make everything extra easy.

My experience to Ngong Hills was spot on!! It was fun, and I would certainly do it again! I read reviews here, so I went fully prepared. Here I am to affirm statements said, as I add mine: 1. Start your trip early, esp if you are doing a round trip... We were there by 8.00 am. The mist/fog clouds add to the scenery and experience. And the return journey becomes a walk in the park, more bearable and more scenic. 2. Carry warm clothes, throw in a SCARF, thank me later 3. Good grip shoes (soles) are the key to making it. Make sure you have these. PS: the shoes must be comfortable and light. 4. If you go by private means, leave your car at the turbine station. That way, you conquer the steep hills first :) You will need the energy esp for a round trip (to & fro) 5. If you start your journey early, carry warm water. It will help with the windy/cold situation. The water will cool down soon enough, don't worry. 6. Eat no sweets, they increase dehydration chances. If it's sugar you need, dissolve some glucose in the warm water. 7. Carry loose money to support the women and kids by buying their beads. 8. DON'T carry a walking aid (unless you need it) - it adds to the luggage. 9. Eat something before you start your journey. Your body will thank you for it. 10. Remember to have fun! Enjoy the trip. Laugh. Make it memorable

Get closer to the wind turbines. Carry warm clothes it can get very windy and cold. It is also a great place to host your events.

Got invited by a friend of mine for a hike in « Ngong Hills ». Given that I had never gone for a hike before in my life, I jumped on this opportunity. I can only say that Ngong Hills has given me taste for hikes and group activities. It was really fun and also challenging physically. I’d do that again if I have the chance to.

Tried the hills for the first time and found them difficult. While other hikers passed me with ease I was really found it hard. Main lesson is one needs to prepare well for them. Also after the first hill there are some ladies selling fruits so that was welcome. The views are amazing!! and i was glad i did it!!

The Trip is Fun. If you want to just see the turbines, do not go all the way to Corner Baridi, just drive up to the Turbines...But where is the fun in that? Turbines are boring. Go for the Hike. Entrance Fee is KES. 200 per adult head. Do not Bring kids for the hike, you will curse them after the first hill. Carry Snicker Bars and Water, not Soda and Crisps/biscuits. Have Light Sweaters even on a sunny day. It gets quite windy once you get to the Highest Point (hill 4). DO NOT be misled, there are more than 7 Hills and Serious Climbs and Descents. Have light sShoes with good grip and Start off Early. Around 10am is the best time to start the hike when the sun isn't beating down on you too hard. With a good pace and no breaks, it will take you 3 hours from Corner Baridi to The Turbines. There’s no need for armed escort if you are a group of more than 5. Carry loose change to buy beads from local kids and support them. Quite friendly little fellas. If you have vertigo, stick close to your partners, there are some places you will wish you never went for the hike. The Views are breath taking along the way. When Starting off, use the phone masts as markers or targets. There are no directions once you pass the check-in gate. Do not try to use maps me or those fancy hiking apps...waste of phone battery. Speaking of Phones, Carry a Good Camera. There may be Buffaloes along the way but do not stop to ogle at them, they don't like it. Keep Moving. DO NOT LITTER THE FOREST.
