“Nice, but not really worth the price.”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We did a half-day safari here on the tail end of our Kilimanjaro hike, but I had already done a 6-day safari. For me it wasn't worth it to also visit Nairobi NP. For my friend who did Kili with me, and hadn't done a safari, it probably was. It was nice, however, to see a lion with the city skyline in the background.

“Outstanding”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

Loved this place, the wildlife is awesome. During my visit here I was fortunate enough to see a pride of lions attack a heard of zebras about 30 yards in front of me. The giraffe and elephant orphanages are well worth seeing.

“Surprising Animal Diversity”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Further, it is fun to drive yourself and not be constrained by guides. Fun to explore and discover. Spend at least 3 or 4 hours.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

Hi we went to the orphan centre at Nairobi national park and I have to say the best part was when the lions were being fed, watch out for the keepers offering to hold baby cheetahs or lions for money you can get arrested for it we got lucky don't let it happen to you you can pay 100 shillings when you go in to do this the keepers will try and charge you 2000 shillings

“All three are a must for first time visitors to Nairobi”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

Saw two male lios at the side of the track only 500 meters inside the park! Ate a delicious lunch in the garden of the Karen Blixen Cafe and fed the giraffes at Giraffe manor
