“Seeing both lion and black rhino within hours of arriving in Kenya was fantastic!” - Gretchen

Skip the city and head straight for the bush

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 entering the park, we saw eland, zebra, buffalo and giraffe. After checking in and having a bit of lunch, our evening game drive rewarded us with hartebeest, heron and more plains game, as well as lion and black rhino. It was the perfect place to kick off a safari in East Africa!
