Nairobi National Park’s relatively small size makes it all the easier to see all it has to offer in less than one day.
Your game drive will take about four hours, and should showcase some of Africa‘s most iconic animals.
Located so close to the city, it’s a perfect option for those limited on time.
Pick up from your hotel or residence. Arriving in Nairobi National Park, you’ll quickly see how unique this special reserve is. Within sight of the city’s skyline you can spot lion, rhino, giraffe, buffalo, cheetah, hyena, zebra and much more. This reserve is the real thing – the animals aren’t in cages or behind fences. They are here in the wild, by the thousands. In fact, the annual East Africa migration of wildebeest and zebra moves over the wide-open grassy plains, past acacia bush and through this most unlikely national park.
Just 10km south of the Kenya capital city Nairobi National park is Kenya’s oldest (1946) and one of its smallest, but sightings of lions and hyenas are regular.

Kifaru Ark; Kifaru is Kiswahili for rhinoceros and the park supports the largest population of endangered black rhinos in Kenya. Appropriately, the park has earned the nickname Kifaru Ark. As the population of rhinos here continues to grow, the park has become a source of the endangered species, supplying them to other parks around the country.
