When? October - April
Unique in being located alongside a major city, the 120-km² Nairobi National Park encompasses a wealth of contrasting habitats, ranging from open grassland and lightly wooded plains with rocky valleys to seasonal swamps, dams, forest-lined rivers and streams, and – along its western boundary – a thin strip of upland forest.
Gazetted in 1946, the Park is Kenya’s oldest conservation area, with a bird list running to 520 species, of which 200 can often be seen in a single day.
A day tour at Nairobi National Park offers a gentle orientation into the world of safari giving you a taste of what to expect from the bigger parks spread around the country.
Few things can be as exciting as watching the game all morning but sitting down for a picnic lunch inside the park during your day tour is a unique experience to look forward to.
There are plenty of other activities for those taking a full day tour including taking a walk at the hippo pools, checking out the historic ivory burning site…
