Was prepared to be disappointed as this park is so close to the city. But it is huge and the game viewing was excellent. Our late afternoon game drive gave us really good close encounters with zebra, impala, giraffe, lions and rhinos amongst many others....More

If you don't have a lot of time in Kenya you still can see many wild animals n Safari in Nairobi National Park. Great place to visit and so conveniently close to the capital of Kenya. Definitely, I recommend visiting this park.

An early morning visit is the time to see numerous animals in the wild and close access to the city. Hire a guide from one of the tour companies for best access.

Located within the city, it's a good place to see wildlife in a safe manner. Can visit to spend time off on weekends.
