Nairobi National Park is unique in the world, no other city has wildlife on their doorstep as Nairobi has. This is not a zoo, it is not fenced in - or it is, but only on the city side (good), but on the back side...More

Thoroughly enjoyed our PRE SAFARI SAFARI -- now see that Melania Trump visited the same park.... What a "teaser" for the follow-up safari through Kenya and Tanzania

Best thing is it's location, so close to Nairobi and takes not much of your time to visit all the park and see all the animals. However, there are no Elephants, but you'll not miss the Lions, Hippos, Giraffes and even Rhinos. You'll be better...More

The game drive is the same as just in the morning,only that in the afternoon you are limited to the exit time unlike in the morning you can extendntime.Also you need a driver guide who knows the park well.
