Nairobi National Park. A short drive out of Nairobi’s central business district is the Nairobi National Park. Wide open grass plains and backdrop of the city scrapers, scattered acacia bush play host to a wide variety of wildlife including the endangered black rhino, lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, buffaloes, giraffes and diverse birdlife with over 400 species recorded. Visitors can enjoy the park’s picnic sites, three campsites and the walking trails for hikers.
We’ll pick you up for the short journey to the Nairobi National park. Your short wildlife safari is in the comfort of a private pop-top 4×4 Jeep or a safari van. Arriving in for park entrance formalities, you’ll quickly see how unique this special reserve is. Within sight of the city’s skyline you can spot lion, rhino, giraffe, buffalo, cheetah, hyena, zebra and much more. even though downtown Nairobi is within sight just a few miles away, this is not a city zoo or theme park you’re visiting.
The animals aren’t in cages or behind fences. They are here in the wild, by the thousands. In fact, the annual East Africa migration of wildebeest and zebra moves over the wide-open grassy plains, past acacia bush and through this most unlikely national park.
Just 10km south of the Kenya capital city of Nairobi, the park is Kenya’s oldest (1946) and one of its smallest, but sightings of lions and hyenas are regular. Spending your important holiday time here with us you’ll have opportunities to see endangered rhinos, hippos, ostrich and 400 species of birds.
Kifaru is Kiswahili for rhinoceros and the park supports the largest population of endangered black rhinos in Kenya. Appropriately, the park has earned the nickname Kifaru Ark. As the population of rhinos here continues to grow, the park has become a source of the endangered species, supplying them to other parks around the country.
Nairobi National Park Boasts Many Walking Trails
Unlike many other national parks, the setting here features many walking trails from which to choose. There is a guided walking trail to the hippo pool to view these immense creatures and possibly crocodile as well.
As we follow these trails and wildlife tracks on our safari, we’ll be looking to spot white and black rhino, leopard, lion, cheetah, buffalo and more.
Another special site we’ll visit is the Ivory Burning Monument. Here at this historic spot tons of ivory seized from poachers have been publicly burned to protest the ivory trade and as a commitment to protect the country’s elephants.
This half-day Nairobi national park private tour is approximately 5 hours, and you have a choice of a morning or afternoon excursion.
