#1 of 57 in Nature in Kenya
Must see · National Park · Nature / Park
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.

  • Magical experience and the location is just perfect to be honest . The views, animals and nature is simply amazing.  more »
  • After being in many of the National Parks of Kenya over the last 6 months, I was impressed with Nairobi NP. It will be good when the road upgrade is completed, but still, lots of animals and handy...  more »
  • Lioness hunting, this was the highlight of the day. It was breathtaking seeing how they strategize to catch the prey. So many animals, warthogs, buffaloes, antelopes, gazelles, zebras, giraffes...  more »

  • Just returned from Nairobi National Park and had a wonderful time. The guides were great and knew all about each animal, bird and plants. Our comfort, concerns and questions were their number one priority.
  • It is surreal to think this is basically in the middle of the city, you really can see and find almost all the animals you can dream to see in a safari here. It being so close to the city kills a bit that feeling of adventure and nature but it is still worth it.
  • The national park within the city. This place is beautiful and if your timings are right, you might get to see most of the wild animals. I loved the experience
  • Located close to the Nairobi city, good views when on tourist vehicles. However, the park is mostly crowded on weekends and holidays due to the huge number of families that visit. For the good reasons meant to safeguard the interests of the great city of Nairobi, the park's establishment must have been a grand idea.
  • Cannot recommend enough. It's incredible to discover such a large and well-kept park inside a big city. Over the course of one day we encountered a lion, several grey and black rhinos, countless zebras, impalas and elands, ostriches and many bird species. Make sure to book a good safari guide!
