Nairobi National Park & Animal Orphanage or Nairobi Safari Walk / Carnivore Restaurant Meat Eater's Experience

Written on: March 10, 2015   |   I visited in March 2015 Nairobi National Park is the only existing Wildlife Park situated in a capital city in the world. This unique wildlife sanctuary is tucked just 10 kms away from the bustling city centre of Nairobi Kenya. Several animal species roam within this park including four members of the Big Five with an exception of the African Elephant. Other animal species found here include; large predators - lions, leopards, hyenas and cheetah. Large herbivores - elands, cape buffalo, zebras, wildebeests, black rhinoceros and other species including diverse bird life. Other attractions include Ivory Burning Site Monument, Walking trails at Hippo pools within Nairobi Safari Walk & the Animal Orphanage.

A half-day tour option gives you an alternative of combining either Carnivore Restaurant with a safari within the urban Nairobi National Park or Carnivore with a safari walk within the famous Nairobi Safari Walk as well as the Kenyan Zoo that is commonly known as the Animal Orphanage. Carnivore Restaurant is famous for its succulent stew and barbecue dishes of game meat. It's an excellent choice of visit as welcome or farewell after a well deserved Kenyan & African Safari.

Nairobi National Park is a short drive out of Nairobi’s central business district. This park has a wide variety of wildlife including the endangered black rhino, lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, buffalo, giraffes and diverse bird life with over 400 species recorded. 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
