  • Great place to visit when you arrived to Nairoby for several days. You will see all key animals, but elephants. Go early morning, you will have a chance to see more. Do not stal on main roads only...

  • Conveniently located Right in the heart of the city. So for those of you visiting Nairobi for a short period, this is the park you need to visit. Check migration dates etc before you venture out so that you aren’t disappointed. I was quite intrigued but he ivory graveyard and the governments efforts to curb poaching by. Truly commendable. Was so happy to see two lions as well. Thankfully they had just eaten, so were resting and we got a fairly close up shot of them. You definitely need a local guide/driver to take you in or else you’d be happy hire lost. Yes it’s a trifle expensive for non-residents
  • The park will surely present a pleasant experience if you know when to go. It is advisable to first inquire on when the best time to visit the park is as the main attraction of animals such as lions can be hard to find at times. Lastly I would highly recommend a guide as they know where certain animals can be found and crucially when.
