Nairobi National Park

Welcome to Kenya’s most accessible yet incongruous safari experience. Set on the city’s southern outskirts, Nairobi National Park (at 117 sq km, one of Africa’s smallest) has abundant wildlife that can, in places, be viewed against a backdrop of city skyscrapers and planes coming into land – it's one of the only national parks on earth bordering a capital city. Remarkably, the animals seem utterly unperturbed by it all.

The Nairobi National park has acquired the nickname ‘Kifaru Ark’, a testament to its success as a rhinoceros (kifaru in Kiswahili) sanctuary. The park is home to the world's densest concentration of black rhinos (more than 50), though even the park's strong antipoaching measures couldn't prevent poachers from killing one of the rhinos in August 2013 and then again in January 2014. They were the first such attacks in six years, and reflect the current sky-high Asian black-market price for rhino horn.

Lions and hyenas are also commonly sighted within the park; rangers at the entrance usually have updates on lion movements. You’ll need a bit of patience and a lot of luck to spot the park’s resident cheetahs and leopards. Other regularly spotted species include gazelles, warthogs, zebras, giraffes, ostriches, and buffaloes.

Nairobi National park’s wetland areas sustain approximately 400 bird species, which is more than in the whole of the UK.

You can enter the Nairobi National Park by using the main park entrance from the train station. Apart from the main entrance, which lies 7km from the city center, there are other gates on Magadi Road and the Athi River gate; the latter is handy if you’re continuing on to Mombasa, Amboseli, or the Tanzanian border. The roads in the park are passable with 2WDs, but traveling in a 4WD is never a bad idea, especially if the rains have been heavy.

Unless you already have your own vehicle, the cheapest way to see the park is on the shuttle, a big Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) bus that leaves the main gate at 2 pm on Sunday for a 2½-hour tour. You need to book in person at the main gate by 1.30 pm, but do call ahead if you want to do the tour, as times can change.

    Nairobi National Park has very close proximity to the city of Nairobi and is easily accessible, with excellent tracks - part tarmac, part gravel. There are lots of animals that are easy to come by on a regular game drive including the lion, giraffe, buffalo, eland, the impala, the elusive leopard, ostrich, gazelle, black rhino, hartebeest not forgetting the interesting to watch and ever-active baboons. The David Sheldrick elephant orphanage, the animal orphanage, and the Safariwalk Board offer an unforgettable complete safari experience. Coupled up with the all-time good weather, this park is my personal favorite. i and my girlfriend enjoyed our stay at Nairobi National park.
