Full description
Embark on a half–day tour offering you the opportunity to discover Nairobi’s beauty and history within a short time. Nairobi National Park is the world’s wildlife capital, just a short drive out of Nairobi’s central business district. Wide open grass plains and a backdrop of the city scrapers 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. This unique wildlife sanctuary is just a few kilometers from Nairobi's bustling city center, with Nairobi home to the only wildlife sanctuary to be found in the city precincts. Despite its proximity, over 50 species of mammals can be found there, including four of the Big Five. Please note you will exit the Nairobi National Park at 10:00 AM in order to make the opening time at the Elephant Orphanage at 11:00 AM. You will stay until 12:00 PM and then be dropped at your hotel at around 1:00 PM.

An excellent morning that felt like a whole day. 5.30am pick up and we were watching bathing hippos within half an hour! Our guide/driver was very knowledgeable about where animals could be spotted and we managed to see lions, rhino, hippos, crocs... Then we went to visit the Karen Blixen house and museum, also well worth a visit, with a informative and chatty personal guide to fill in the historical detail. Highly recommended!

Alex the tour guide And the activity was fantastic, The park is beautiful and our guide knew how to get us to all the right spots , we did overlook in booking that the park fees are extra , so make sure you take that into account and make sure you are getting a good deal.

Fantastic tour in the Park - saw 4 of the big 5, including fabulous close encounter with a leopard. Alex, our driver, was superb! He responded to walkie-talkie message about the leopard and got us there in time to see her. Just great. Highly recommend this tour. Sheldrick elephant orphanage was also wonderful.
