Nairobi National Park, Nairobi

4.4
#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.

  • 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.
