Nairobi National Park
What if you just want to get away from the urban rat race without leaving the city altogether and yet have a wild experience? Nairobi National Park is one of Kenya’s most popular attractions and for a good reason – not only is it full of wildlife but it’s the only National Park next to a capital city in the world. With some of the best views in the world, photos look like they are straight out of a magazine.
Your short wildlife safari is in the comfort of a private 4×4 jeep with a pop up roof.
Arriving in this special park, you’ll quickly notice how unique this special park is. With a backdrop of the city’s skyline you can spot lions, rhinos, buffaloes, hyenas, cheetahs, zebras, giraffes, impalas and much more. Even though downtown Nairobi is a few miles away, this is no city zoo or theme park. Despite this being the oldest (1946) and one of its smallest parks in Kenya, sightings of lions and hyenas are regular.
It boasts of over 400 species of birds including the majestic Ostrich. Kifaru is Swahili for rhinoceros – the park supports the largest population of endangered black rhinos in Kenya. Appropriately, the park has earned the nickname Kifaru Ark. As the population of rhinos here continues to grow, the park has become a source of the endangered species, supplying them to other parks around the country.
A special must-visit site within the park is the Ivory Burning Monument. On this historic spot, tonnes of ivory seized from poachers have been publicly burned to protest the ivory trade and as a commitment to protect the country’s elephants. A nation’s culture residing in the heart and soul of its capital.
