Owner description: Noble black rhinos are the highlight of this amazing park, Kenya’s first national park and a local treasure.

In spite of Nairobi's increasing expansion and population, this is still a place where, with a bit of luck, you can see a fair sample of Kenya's wildlife except for elephants. It is however under serious threat since it is surrounded by the city and the remaining corridor in and out of it is increasingly used for agricultural and horticultural expansion and road infrastructure. Its wildlife population varies according to the seasons but we have seen some wonderful things there on our many visits including lions, cheetah, even a leopard, rhino, plains game, birds,...). Definitely worth a visit, especially for visitors to Nairobi with no time to visit the more distant parks.

The only National Game park like it in the world. See lions with a city back drop - Amazing! Visit this place and contribute to the efforts to save all game in Kenya and beyond.

JUST outside Nairobi, this is great. Get up early, and go at sunrise. You really won't be disappointed. Many, many animals, and more

First time I saw a male lion in a safari, also saw the dead eaten buffalo he had left behind. It is close to town and worth a visit if you have the time. Book your trip at the hotel.
