Seeing two out of the big 5 is not bad at all. Okay, an African lion sighting could have made it more awesome, but I am not complaining. I was with a group of friends on a Sunday, and we went early, in time for the opening of the park. The person at the ticketing booth was a little slow but once we entered the park gate everything was okay. We saw the spectacular rise of the sun, and just a few minutes after the gate we saw our first zebra. We only had three hours to spare at the park since we have a 10 am meeting to go to but it was amazingly fun. I took photos of all the animals I had my sight on, and event that of birds. Showing the photos to a friend gave me more reason to feel proud since (as he claimed) that even if I had not seen any lion, a sighting of the common kingfisher is more than a good reason for being in the park. So, will I recommend the Nairobi National Park for those with limited time to spare, YES.
