Isn't it amazing to realize that this wonderful quiet park exists within the precincts of the hustle and bustle that Nairobi city is known for. A sure place to visit on your bucket list with a variety of natural vegetation to sample. Plenty of animals...More

One of the best attractions to see in Nairobi if you are a nature and wildlife lover. If you are lucky you get to see lions and rhinos inside the park. Ideal time would be to visit at sunset.

I'm sorry, I do not know the name of our drivers, but from what I saw, most any of them would be qualified.
Sunday of next week ( means 19th March), I will visit Nairobi National Park. I will go alone, so does anyone know how to find a group to join? My friend told me that every Sunday, I can go to the gate of Nairobi National Park and find a group there, but she does not remember exactly. Does anyone go like this? Or could you recommend a tour with resonable price for me? Thanks in advance.

Steve, I am wondering if you drove yourself on the game drive through the Nairobi NP or if you had a guide? If you had a guide, what was the name of the company and or guide? If you drove, did you go through a rental company? I appreciate any help I can get as I plan my vacation :) Thanks, Cassandra
