Nairobi National Park, Nairobi

4.3
#1 of 61 in Nature in Kenya
See wild giraffes and black rhinos walking across a backdrop of skyscrapers at Nairobi National Park. Situated just 7 km (4 mi) south of the city center, the park is easily one of the country's most accessible nature reserves, yet despite its proximity to humans, it attracts a large and diverse range of wildlife. Tour the plains and see the park's extremely successful rhinoceros sanctuary, as well as hippopotami, Masai giraffes, and several species of big cats. Bring along a picnic and learn about the park's conservation projects on a guided visit. With our online itinerary creator, Nairobi attractions like Nairobi National Park can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • It is a nice and beautiful game park. You should create time and visit the park in the city to see wild animals such as the lion, warthogs, hyena, snakes, monkeys, Buffalo, giraffe, antelopes, baboons, leopards and many more. I can't explain the fun, come experience it
  • A great safari experience, without leaving the city. We saw lions hunting, black rhinos, giraffes, zebras, warthogs, and many other animals. I even found a tarantula in a hold at one of the picnic sites (exciting for me). The nice thing for us was that it was way less crowded than Masai Mara national park so we weren't competing with other groups for views. We really enjoyed the day.
  • It was the best place to be. I enjoyed my time there. I viewed wild animals with the aid of a guide. I can recommend every one to visit the Nairobi National Park
  • 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.
