Wildlife in Nairobi National park

Nairobi has some activities that are worth your visit while in Kenya.  Whether its for a few hours or a full day out. Established in 1946, the national park was Kenya’s first. It is located 7.5 kilometres south of the centre of Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city.

We offer two daily trips to the park. An early morning ride that starts at 06.00 am and ends by mid-day. The second one starts at 15.00hr and ends at 18.00hrs.

This park comprises of a wide open grassland plains and backdrop of the city scrapers. Some scattered acacia bush play host to a wide variety of wildlife including the endangered black rhino, lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, buffaloes, giraffes and diverse bird life with over 400 species recorded. 4- 6 hours will be optimal.

The park was established in 1946 to safe guard the wildlife that lives here, including the rhinos. Three sides are fenced to prevent encroachment while one side is left open to allow for migration from the Kitengela plains.


Nairobi National park was the first national park to be established in Kenya. Initially it was used by Masai pastoralist who used to herd here. The government moved them and gazetted the land as a national park as it was rich with wildlife. These animals needed to be protected and hence the need for protection.

Safari in Nairobi National Park

Both black and white rhinos can be found here. The lion prides continue to be spotted especially in the king fisher area. There is a view point and you can take a break there to enjoy even a snack. A safari in Nairobi National park is very educative too. The location is very friendly for a few hours family outing in the weekend.
