Nairobi National Park

Gazetted in 1946 as the first East Africa park, Nairobi National Park is famous for it’s close proximity to Nairobi City. It’s a mixture of grass plains and highland dry forest, including a permanent river.

Over 100 species of mammals and 400 species of birds have been recorded in the park. It’s such a source of amazement that such a variety of wildlife can be viewed within sight of the skyscrapers and Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, and four of the BIG 5 can be seen here – leopard, lion, buffalo, and rhino, but no elephant.

As in all national parks, the animals are free to come and go as grazing dictates; the usual ‘faunal reservoir’ adjacent in this case the Kitengela Conservation Area and the Ngong Hills Game Reserve.

For all its ‘urbanity’, remember the game is as wild as anywhere.

Nice introduction to Kenya! Birds galore, and rhinos! Lovely place to visit!!
