BEST PLACE FOR DAY TOUR

Written on: March 09, 2015   |   I visited in March 2015 Nairobi National Park is one of the biggest national parks in the world bordering the capital city. Among the four of the big five are found here namely: buffalo, lions, leopards and black rhinos. It is only 15 minutes drive from Nairobi town center to the National Park. Large variety of Ciconiiformes birds like storks, herons, egrets, ibises, spoonbills and others are mostly found at the small lake which is at the far end of this national park.
This national park is full of antelope and so make it easier to spot large predators like lion and cheetah as they keep on following these prey in search of food.

Visitors can enjoy the park’s picnic sites, three campsites and the walking trails for hikers.

Nairobi is the only city boasting of a national park next to its door step.
The park is located 15kms away from the city centre and despite this proximity, there are many species of mammals including four of the Big Five. The best time to visit the park is early in the morning or late afternoon everyday read more

Nairobi is the only city in the world with a wildlife park within its borders. A short drive from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, its an ideal way to come off of a long journey and be instantly exposed to Africa's majestic wildlife. During my most recent visit, I opted to stay in the park rather than in the city or in a suburb like Karen. Within minutes of ent... read more

Nairobi National Park is one of the rare places that you will have opportunity to see the wildlife within the lights of the city. I enjoyed every bit of my game drive with all the wild animals that I spotted. I would recommend this park for every visitor. read more

A park that allows you to be on safari within minutes of leaving Nairobi Airport.
The National National Park boasts a wide diversity of game including lion and rhino, so why not start your safari from the moment you touchdown?

Nairobi National Park is located approximately 7 km south of the centre of Nairobi, Kenya's capital city with an electric fence separating the park's wildlife from the metropolis.
This park gives all what you desire to see in the wilderness close to nature. In terms of birds there is a large variety of species in this park. It is also to rhinos.

A safari in Nairobi National Park is only kilometres from the city centre. It is a very nice park you cant afford to miss if connections of flight on transit are Nairobi to JRO. Or while on a short business trip. read more
