Kenya’s oldest National park, 117km2 and only 7km from Nairobi City’s dramatic skyline which is set against the majestic savannah urban centre. It prides itself as the only city in the world so close to natural game reserve with over 100 species of  animals.

Nairobi National Park has a special Migration Corridor which attracts a range of exciting games. The animals here include indigenous Black Rhino, zebra, wildebeest, eland, cheetah, plus so many bird species.

It is ideal starting/ending point for safaris. The park doesn’t have elephants. It’s ideal for a one-day trip together with a visit to the National Museum, David Sheldrick elephant orphanage, Giraffe centre, lunch at Karen Blixen Museum, made famous by the movie “Out of Africa” and dinner at Carnivore restaurant to complete your full day. You’ll wish you could have more time for more fun. It’s true, not Hollywood.

All this with Rise and Shine Tours and Safaris, what else would you wish for?
