See wild giraffes and black rhinos walking across a backdrop of skyscrapers at Nairobi National Park.

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.

  • Lions, lions and more lions.....not for the first time, I realised how underrated this park is. Great game viewing, aside of the Lions including Buffalo, Rhino, Wildebeest as well as Giraffes...

  • Conveniently located Right in the heart of the city. So for those of you visiting Nairobi for a short period, this is the park you need to visit. Check migration dates etc before you venture out so that you aren’t disappointed. I was quite intrigued but he ivory graveyard and the governments efforts to curb poaching by. Truly commendable. Was so happy to see two lions as well. Thankfully they had just eaten, so were resting and we got a fairly close up shot of them. You definitely need a local guide/driver to take you in or else you’d be happy hire lost. Yes it’s a trifle expensive for non-residents
  • It took 3-4 hrs to see the national park and animal orphanage. A wild animal habitat next to the modernized Nairobi. We couldn't see lions, but other animals were easy to spotted. Great place to visit next to the city and so relaxing and appreciate the nature.
  • The park will surely present a pleasant experience if you know when to go. It is advisable to first inquire on when the best time to visit the park is as the main attraction of animals such as lions can be hard to find at times. Lastly I would highly recommend a guide as they know where certain animals can be found and crucially when.
  • This is definitely a national treasure and should be on the world map! It was an amazing experience! We set out early early and apparently that’s the best time. We saw lions, zebras, buffalos, a giraffe , antelopes and even almost caught a hunt by some lions. Our driver was super amazing and really helpful. That really added to making it super pleasant
  • Lovely! We decided to treat the kids to a breakfast picnic at the park, followed by a self-drive game drive. The park roads have been freshly graded since our last visit so the drive was much more enjoyable. The animals were also quite in plenty. Best time though is early morning or late afternoon when most predators are out and about. We are planning another one soon... #TembeaKenya
