Nairobi National Park, Nairobi Reviews - Write a Review
The park was fine and the animals did not disappoint last time we visited earlier this year, but entry was slow and inefficient. On our way out we hoped to have a bite at the restaurant, but the place and staff were hopeless. Perhaps everything should be left to the animals, as in animal farm!!
It's wonderful to have a huge national park right in the heart of the city. We have loved visiting the park for day trips just to get away and feel like we're truly in the African bush. It's fun to see the skyline behind the animals, but you can also get to parts of the park where you feel hundreds of miles from civilizations. Some of the roads are rough for taking your private vehicle, so be careful if you do not have 4x4. Also shoot for going on a weekday, as the tourists can really spoil the atmosphere on the weekend. And get to the gate well before it opens unless you want to stand in a long line to pay your fees.
Extremely easy to get to. It could have better signage. We were lucky to see baby cheetahs once and a family of male female ostriches and 17 of their chicks.
Wonderful place to visit. Guided tours available but we took own vehicle in and drove around for hours. You can just drive around as you please (but stay n vehicle). Fantastic for photography. Almost no facilities once you're in (there's a picnic area with simple toilets part way round on one of the roads).
Not so great experience. Was excepting to see many a wild life. Very few sightings. Few lions, giraffe. More deers and buffalo. If you are lucky you may find more.
