Full description
Get picked up from your hotel or the airport and then head straight to Nairobi National Park for a three to four-hour game drive. Your guide's goal is to show you the largest variety of animals possible. If you're lucky, you may spot rhinos and lions getting ready for the day as you enter. This tour takes you to a unique wildlife sanctuary only seven kilometers from the bustling city center of Nairobi. The Nairobi National Park grants visitors the chance to see four of the Big 5 (excluding the elephant) against the backdrop of the city skyline.  Rhino, buffalo, cheetahs, zebras, giraffes, lions, and plenty of antelopes and gazelles can be seen roaming in this open plains country with a section of highland forest as well as stretches of broken bush country, deep, rocky valleys, and gorges with scrub and long grass. Bird-lovers will be in heaven with over 300 bird species including the secretary bird, crowned cranes, vultures, peckers, and many more. Choose which option best suits your schedule, whether a quick half-day tour or a full-day experience with an included visit to the Giraffe Center.
