Nairobi National Park, Nairobi

4.4
#1 of 62 in Nature in Kenya
See wild giraffes and black rhinos walking across a backdrop of skyscrapers at Nairobi National Park. Situated just 7 km (4 mi) south of the city center, the park is easily one of the country's most accessible nature reserves, yet despite its proximity to humans, it attracts a large and diverse range of wildlife. Tour the plains and see the park's extremely successful rhinoceros sanctuary, as well as hippopotami, Masai giraffes, and several species of big cats. Bring along a picnic and learn about the park's conservation projects on a guided visit. With our online itinerary creator, Nairobi attractions like Nairobi National Park can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • Beautiful park with many wild animals. The ultimate see is the Lion! The game drives here are amazing
  • The only park found in a city, where you can actually see a hunt right with a backdrop of the city, amazing park to see rhinos, lions among lots of herbivores grazing freely... The park is accessible all year round..
