We got very lucky in the half-day trip, where we saw rhinos, lions, giraffes, zebras, impalas, buffalo, crocodile, etc. Try to start as early in the morning as possible. The ticketing process can take up to 30 mins - so plan for that.

Really nice park and set up. Great variety of animals and lots of roads to drive along so it never feels crowded. Some interesting history and information about poaching and the steps Kenya has taken to tackle issues.

7kms from the centre of Nairobi - this game park shouldn’t be missed. We saw dozens of different game whilst driving through to the beautiful Ololo Lodge.

Nice for a quick game drive if you do not have much time in Kenya. Pity they build that high speed railway through the middle of the park.

I have seen lions every time I have been there but once. Every other animal you would want to see in the wild (no elephants, they eat too much so they aren't there) many times each visit. I have been here 5+ times in the...More
