Beezely, are you going on safari whilst you are here? Because if you are, I wouldn't waste your money going to the Nairobi National Park. It costs a fortune for non-residents to get in, and I personally don't know of any companies that do the trip in a 4x4, although someone else on here might be able to help. Most people take their own vehicles in. If your trip has been organised by a Tour Operator, it might be worth asking them.

If going on safari, you might as well wait for that than a visit to Nairobi NP.

As to an open safari vehicle, verify with your tour operator about the camp/lodges you'll be visiting and whether their game drives are done in open vehicles. Many do have these.

While in NBO, I believe your 11/yr old would better enjoy the Giraffe Center and Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage.

What is your entire itinerary while in Kenya? Which parks/reserves, # of days, where staying? We can better comment.

From the recent postings I have been reading,Nairobi Nat Park is turning out to be not all that but you can always give it a shot...if you have a kid with you,maybe giraffe centre/dalphne sheldrick or a trip to naivasha for boat ride and a nakuru national park with flamingoes would excite him/her..for tour companies,many to choose from but if i was to recomend...www.diwakasafaris.com or write directly to joseph@diwakasafaris.com...have always reco them here..good thing is they provide a private guide for free alongside the tour driver/guide.
