Very versatile wildlife including lions, rhinos, all sorts of antilopes etc. You have to be very lucky to spot a cheetah or leopard. Extremely easily accessible from Nairobi but can be rather busy on weekends.

Skyscrapers and lions side by side
Overall rating

Nairobi National Park is a nice park. Here you get the opportunity to see wildlife in the bush, accompanied by tall buildings and city landscape.

The park is a very good park for viewing lions. It is also a sanctuary for endangered rihnos, so the chances are pretty high for spotting rihnos. It also offers a wide range of landscapes, with forest, plains, river and a small lake.

To walk on the paths with a KWS-guard to look for crocodiles and hippos in the river is reccomended.

The park also has an advantage with not beeing to big. It is a nice park to drive by yourself, without a safariguide.

Highly reccomended park to visit!

Overall rating

We arrived here at the lodge 90 minutes after landing with dinner waiting at 2300. Next morning at 0600 we were on our first game drive. The ranger was excellent and vechicles comfortable. In 2 drives and a walk we saw 51 birds and 17 mammals including lion with the city as a back drop!!!!

The lodge was comfortable and the food was excellent

Great way to start a trip

Nairobi National Park is the perfect destination for Nairobi residents and tourists who dont want to travel far from the capital city to see wildlife. the weather was perfect during my day of visit. and from the look of the scenery it seemed like its mostly like that. (calm weather.) we saw a variety of wildlife including lions which was my main wildlife i was eager to see. Overall rating, i would give Nairobi National park a 6.

I love Nairobi N.P. and believe it's under-rated and generally under-valued. It's a shame it isn't given a higher priority by the Kenyan authorities, it could be so much better if there was greater control over the shambas which have been allowed to proliferate at the southern end of the game corridor, by which animals enter and leave the park.

Great park in a city. Very short ride for Nairobi residents with good wildlife. No Elephants. You can view the city skyline from within the park
