Great place to visit when in Nairobi and you dont have much time to do much else. It may be small on the map but it is very expansive. However, the railway being built on the northern end of the park may destroy this beautiful...More

Watching wildlife within the city centre was awesome. The proximity of the park makes many people desire to tour the National Park. Well managed, the employees are super.

Have been to the national park zoo on several occasions. Kids really enjoy it, there’s lots of open space if you plan on chilling out on the grass. Pricing for locals or residents is very attractive.

It's totally mind-blowing to experience "wild Africa' with lions, baboons, rhinos, zebra, gazelles and more with the skyscrapers of Nairobi on the near horizon! Plus the new railway line snaking through the eastern part of the park! Avoid the picnic site near the Athi River...More
