Not worth money. Sad--but KWS kills non-residents for such high fees. Crazy and not assured of seeing much game or animals.

Biggest problem is price for non-residents. Crazy high and you don't see Elephants and may or may not see Lions. Most likely not--but still charge you as if you were at Masai Mara. Definitely not worth Park Fee. If KWS wants to ruin people coming to parks--then keep increasing park fees. Not sure what they are doing with money, as more elephants were poached and killed this year in Kenya. Sad.

My kids were very excited to see some of the animals they always seen on TV. The park attendants were very friendly and helpful.

A must visit when we come back to nairobi

Africas big five ( if you count the baby elephants at the orphanage) next to one of Africas biggest citys. The people of Kenya should be applauded for keeping this prime real estate as nature intended, bursting with wild animals for all to enjoy. Thank you.

Had a spare day on my work trip so came here in the morning. Tip is to come as early as you can before 7am I think and have a 4WD. We came at 7am in a sturdy van but couldn't cope with some of the roads as the rain was pretty heavy and had made some parts unpassable. We spent quite a bit of time reversing and also rescuing another visitor from her stranded van. Having said that it was pleasurable we saw hartbeest, hawks, vervet monkeys, giraffes, warthogs, lots of birds, buffalo and so on. No lions though. Also some were quite a way away so either bring binoculars or really good camera, my iphone was useless!
