Nairobi National Park

A Wildlife Haven in the Heart of the City

Nairobi National Park, established in 1946, is a unique wildlife reserve located just 7 kilometers from Nairobi’s city center. It offers a remarkable blend of urban and wild environments, with the city’s skyline visible from the park.

The park is home to a diverse range of wildlife, including lions, leopards, cheetahs, zebras, giraffes, buffaloes, and various antelope species. It also features a renowned rhinoceros sanctuary that protects both black and white rhinos. Bird enthusiasts can enjoy spotting over 400 bird species, including ostriches and the colorful lilac-breasted roller.

Nairobi National Park’s accessibility makes it easy for both locals and tourists to visit. The park’s varied landscapes include open grass plains, acacia bush, and riverine forests along the Athi River, supporting a rich array of flora and fauna.

Popular activities in the park include game drives, guided walking trails, and educational tours at the Nairobi Safari Walk. Adjacent to the park is the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, an elephant orphanage that offers a close-up view of baby elephants and insights into their rehabilitation.

The best time to visit is during the dry season (July to October) for optimal wildlife viewing. Visitors can enjoy facilities like picnic sites, campsites, and rest areas. Entrance fees vary, so it’s advisable to check the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) website for current rates.

Nairobi National Park’s unique proximity to an urban center makes it a critical green space for conservation and offers an extraordinary opportunity to experience Kenya’s wildlife without leaving the city. It is a must-visit for anyone traveling to Nairobi.
