Nairobi National Park is “the World’s only Wildlife Park within a Capital City” and is
located 10km South of Nairobi City. The park is home to Black rhinos, lions, Buffalos, leopards and many more other animals plus over 400 species of birds out of which 20 species are seasonal European migrants. If you want to face a lion in the outskirts of a large city, there is no better opportunity than in the Nairobi National Park. You can set off in the morning for a bush safari and spend the afternoon around the asphalt jungle of the city.
The Park is one of the most successful of Kenya’s Black rhino sanctuaries that is already generating stock for reintroduction in former and other upcoming sanctuaries. Due to this success, it is one of the few parks where a visitor can be certain of seeing a black rhino in its natural habitat.
Main attractions here include black rhinos, diverse birdlife, large predators especially lions, leopards, hyenas and cheetahs. Other notables are elands, buffalos, zebras and wildebeests While at this park, you may also visit the Ivory Burning Site Monument and The Orphanage apart from participating in walking trails at hippo pools.
