Full description

Nairobi National Park is situated 6 miles (10 km) from the heart of Kenya’s capital. Established in 1946, it has 44 square miles (114 square km) of pristine savanna with a large population of migratory game animals. For the half-day tour, after being picked up at your hotel early in the morning at 6 AM, head towards Nairobi National Park, arriving at around 6:30 AM. From there, take an exciting 4-hour game drive through the park. Stay on the lookout for many species of game animals, including black rhinos, lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, buffalos, giraffes, zebras, and wildebeest, as well as countless species of wild birds. The park’s open border on its southeast perimeter allows a corridor for the natural migration of game animals during the seasonal rains. Don’t miss this chance to get up close with some of Kenya's amazing wildlife! Other attractions include the ivory burning site monument and walking trails at hippo pools. Following the 4-hour game viewing drive, head back to Nairobi and get dropped off at your hotel. Please note the National Park tour is 5 hours in total.

Unfortunately I waited until the last minute (Night before) to organize Sunrise game drive at Nairobi National Park. However, We were connected with an excellent guide who took us on an outstanding drive where we viewed lions, rhinos, giraffes, and other large and small animals in spite of a rainy morning (with lots of mud). Drive and subsequent visit to Giraffe center were excellent. Guides were knowledgeable and professional. Well done!

My son and I had an amazing tour with Fanuel as our guide. Fanuel picked us up early, was welcoming, and extremely knowledgeable of animal life and habits sharing this information as we toured the park. We will not forget this experience as long as we live & highly recommend to others.

Great taste of the wild within the city

We didnt have time to leave the city so this was an excellent option that gave us a taste of the wild within a manageable time period. The guide came to pick us up on time and it was very well organised and friendly and we got to see many animals. Even a lion!
