  • Wide open grass plains and backdrop of the city scrapers, scattered acacia bush play host to a wide variety of wildlife including the endangered black rhino, lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, buffaloes, giraffes and diverse birdlife with over 400 species recorded. Visitors can enjoy the park’s picnic sites, three campsites and the walking trails for hikers. Blissful sunrises and sunsets blending the African Savannah with Africa's hub, Nairobi.

  • Nairobi's premier gem that offers a wonderful connection to the wild. Here you have a chance to see Lions, Rhinos, Buffalo, Leopards if you are especially observant. That is 4 of the big five spotted in a day! There are a host of other animals to see as well. The best times are early morning between 5:30 am and 9:00 am and late evening between 05:30 pm and 07:00 pm.

  • This is a fantastic real wild animal park to visit. Remember in the whole world it is the only park in a city (Nairobi City). See the big 5. Go into the animal orphanage and see what dedication by the Kenya Wild Life people has done! It is accessible by bus and by public means. Do not miss.

  • I really enjoyed the game drive,, saw 5 lions ,rhino, giraffe, warthog. It's so nice to see this animals at a close range.. Was lucky to bump into a lion that was on the road walking towards our car,, can't complain. It was a nice terrifying experience. Remember to tag a tour guide with you if it's your first time, its a big park and you can get lost if you don't have one

  • Good park and great memories. To have a good time, you have to: - visit too early 06:15 am. 🦁 gets breakfast around this time. After 10:00, animals are avoiding the sun. - get enough drinking water before entering. At entrance, you have to mark the gate in maps to get maps support at exit time. There's - no enough signs link your position to exit gates. - some exit gates are for staff only. It's nice to leave the park about 11:00am. Have a great day.
