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.

  • You haven’t been to Nairobi if you haven’t visited the National park . Amazing place and really nice to spend some time . You enter with your own car or you can hire a minivan inside to drive you...

  • 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!
