Superb experience

The park has very close proximity to the city of Nairobi and is easily accessible, with excellent tracks - part tarmac, part gravel. There are lots of animals that are easy to come-by on a regular game drive including the lion, giraffe, buffalo, eland, the impala, the elusive leopard, ostrich, gazelle, black rhino, hartebeest not forgetting the interesting to watch... read more

The only game-reserve of this nature to border a capital city

Visited: Apr 2015 Reviewed: Jul 24, 2015

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

Skip the city and head straight for the bush

Gretchen

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

The Nairobi National Park is one of its kind since it is the only game park on earth which is at the door step of a major African City.
It is a park which you can visit even if you just have a short stop over in the Kenyan's capital city Nairobi.

I have to admit, I was skeptical about there being any animals in a park so close to the city. But what a wonderful surprise I got when I saw giraffes, various antelope and lots of bird species on my first visit. Another visit showed up a lioness with her cub and then a leopard. And then the last time we visited, we saw about eight black rhinos!! Nairobi NP is def... read more

Wildlife within a city

Georgy
Visited: Jan 2015 Reviewed: Mar 10, 2015

Nairobi National Park is close to town. It's worth doing. If you are lucky, you can see the big 4. Half day excursion is enough. The park is small. A key feature of this park is the large number of native black rhinos. Read more

Wildlife oasis on the outskirts of a metropolis

Wanderlust
Visited: Jan 2009 Reviewed: Feb 23, 2015

We had a layover at Nairobi Wilson airport and needed to kill quite a bit of time. I was super-dubious when I was told we could start our safari early by doing a day trip here. It sounded to me like it was going to be more like a zoo and not really a wildlife park. But, despite the fact that you can see some of the Nairobi skyline in the background, it really is a ... read more
