Nairobi National Park – wilderness in an urban setting
Overall rating
2/5

After many visits to Kenya, I finally decided to have a look at Nairobi National Park. It’s location in the city never appealed to me, but for the particular photo commission I had taken on, I needed a picture of animals against the Nairobi skyline. Although I’ve seen many great images like this taken in this park, it is easier said than done. In fact the repeated images showing this, might give you a wrong idea. Most of the park doesn’t give a view of the skyline at all and it is quite easy to forget you’re in the city a lot of the time. I visited in the rainy season and it poured down with rain, but the game viewing was very good and certainly exceeded expectations. We saw a lioness hunting and several rhino, which is said to be very rare. Next time I’ll have a spare day in Nairobi, I’ll go again!
