Nairobi National Park, Nairobi Reviews

  • We drove trough Southern Expressway beside Nairobi national park, and lucky to see Zebras here. From Airport to Hotel this path is charming. If you are only visiting Nairobi - This park is highly recommended to see wildlife from very close.

  • A must visit for tourist visiting Kenya. Its the quickest interaction with nature at its best where visitors get a wonderful chance to enjoy the sunset, Watch world-life, learn about various animals and enjoy a game drive. The Park is only a few minutes drive from the airport and the city centre. Other than the game drive, there is the Animal Orphanage and the Nature trail.

  • Its always exciting to visit the wild and the national park is a great place to start. I'd advice to go to the park especially the safari drive when its cooler cause when the sun is burning hot, most animals will be hiding. Also all the people who go to the wild and get really close to the animals, please stop. Its not cool watch the animals from a distance. Don't drive your land cruiser or landrover defender almost two feet over the animals. Your disrupting the peace of the animal.

  • It was an awesome experience. I loved the game drive more than the walk and the orphanage. The only downside with the game drive is that you are not guaranteed to see all the animals in the park. We went at a time when the lions were having there afternoon nap:(. If you're going for the drive, it's best you use the provided van and a tour guide who will point out the best routes

  • Nairobi National Park is a national park in Kenya. Established in 1946, the national park was Kenya's first national park. It is located approximately 7 kilometres (4 mi) from the centre of Nairobi in south, Kenya's capital city,with an electric fence separating the park's wildlife from the city. Nairobi's skyscrapers can be seen from the park. The proximity of urban and natural environments has caused conflicts between the animals and local people and threatens animals' migration routes... one of the best park i have ever seen.
