The museum it's self is a bit out dated and old but the stuffed bird collection is the best I have ever seen. Nearly every East African bird species is exposed and then some from other continents. There are also some intresting historical artifacts remaining from pre independence and some local artists expose on the upper floor.

The national Park was great load of space for the animals to freely roam. Only sad thing is some litter as its in a urban area. think the rangers should collect it if they see it.

Given the proximity to downtown Nairobi and the crowds of vehicles, I didn't expect to see too many animals but I was wrong about that. We saw a leopard, hyena, lions, giraffes, ostriches, zebras, wildebeest, and both black and white rhinos. All with Nairobi's ever growing skyline as an odd backdrop.

The best part of the NNP is that it is almost in the city. One could capture a photo of the giraffes and tall building in the background. The animal were not shy, so was pretty good viewing. Needs to be better kept, as there were a lot of plastic bags flying around.

We went to the park very early in the morning and spent all day there. We saw so many animals it was unbelievable. We saw lions numerous times, feasting on their kill and just basking in the sun. There are a lot of zebras here and giraffes. Beautiful views all round of the city in the horizon when you enter... More
