“Excellent Option If You Only Have one free day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

If you dont have the $$$$$ or time to do the big Masai Mara safaris, go to the park. You will see all of the big five, except elephants, that you would on a big safari. It is amazing to see giraffe, lions, rhino and all the others backdropped against the city and right against the airport. So much to see. You need an escort or driver to enjoy completely. Only dislike - there isnt any multiple entry stamp - once you leave you have to pay again to re-enter.

“Visit the park if you don't have much time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

You are busy with conference or business meetings? No time for Safari going to Maasai Mara or any other parks/reserves? This is the place you can go and see some wildlife animals. Seeing animals and the same time you many see high buildings of Nairobi city centre is interesting.

“Nairobi park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

We only went for half a morning but it was more than enough. Our guide took us through the park and we were able to see most animals (Giraffes, Lions, Monkeys, Hippos, all types of birds among others). It was definitely worth the early morning start and great if you dont have a lot of time.

“It is good for kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

Well, if you have went on a safari, you do not need to visit the park. To me, it is just for children. You can see some animals, but from a far distance, and it is nearly impossible to spot one of the big five, unless you spend the whole day there. I think you only pay 20$ just for the view of the park.
