Here’s a great intro to safari life. Nairobi National Park is close to the city but it’s the real deal. Incredibly, within sight of Nairobi’s skyline, you can spot lion, rhino, giraffe, buffalo, cheetah, hyena, and plenty more.

Where else in the world can you see downtown skyscrapers frame a grazing herd of giraffes? This is no zoo or theme park. No cages here. This is wildlife, naturally on the savannah as they have roamed for millennia.

Just think, minutes ago you were in a world-class capital city – now you and your group are on the plains where the East African migration of wildebeest and zebra invades by the thousands on their annual trek.

The park is only 10km (6mi) south of Nairobi, but sightings of lions and hyenas are common. Seeing primal nature so close is an almost surreal experience – your friends won’t believe your photos!

And there’s lots more to experience in this unique spot – rhinos, hippos, ostrich, and hundreds of species of colorful birds. For us at Africa Kenya Safaris, this is our home park, and we take special pride in showing it off.

Take a Quick Safari Break

Have some free time in your schedule? The park is close enough for a fun, easy gateway.

Starting from downtown, the airport or any local hotel, we’ll pick you up and get you on safari for an exciting day tracking Kenya’s wildlife.

So, ditch the city and come see the real Africa!

Help Us Save the Kifaru… the Rhino

Do you speak any Kiswahili? You do now – kifaru is the word for rhinoceros. The park supports the largest population of endangered black rhinos in Kenya and has earned the special nickname of Kifaru Ark.

Your visit helps fund the care and protection of the park’s rhinos. The conservation efforts here have been so successful the rhino population has steadily increased. Now the park has become a source for these endangered creatures for other reserves around the country.

Make Some Friends

A group safari is a great way to make friends and meet other safari-loving adventurers. Share photos, swap stories, and maybe even discover other parks together. We can arrange other group tours for you throughout our country-wide choices of great national wildlife reserves.

At Nairobi National Park You Can Walk the Walk

Here’s another unique feature of the park – walking trails. Most national parks have few if any walking trails… not here. Enjoy your choice of a series of well-marked trails and get closer to the action.

There’s also a walking trail to the hippo pool and you’ll watch for crocodiles there as well. While you follow these trails keep your camera ready for sightings of white or black rhino and cheetah, buffalo, and possibly leopard or lion.

anti-poaching Poaching – The Ivory Burning Monument

Perhaps the most dramatic symbol in the park is the Ivory Burning Monument. Created as a protest to rampant elephant poaching, several past presidents of Kenya burned hundreds of tons of illegal ivory at this spot – about 5% of all captured ivory in the world.

These dramatic ceremonies were a turning point in Kenya’s awareness of this criminal enterprise and began its dedicated commitment to protecting the country’s elephants.
