The Nairobi National Park

The Nairobi National Park is said to be Kenya’s most accessible yet incongruous safari experience. Set on the capital’s southern outskirts, the park is not short of wildlife viewed against a backdrop of city skyscrapers and planes. It’s one of the only national parks that boarder a capital city.
The unbothered animals go about their business ignoring the city’s burst of life and the landing airplanes. The park is one of Africa’s smallest park, being 117 square km, but that does not stop it from being one of Kenya’s most visited tourist attraction.
Nairobi National Park has been nicknamed Kifaru Ark coined from the park’s rhino sanctuary, the world’s densest concentration of black rhinos. The park is home to at least 50 black rhinos. But that’s not the only animal you will interact with.
Lions and hyenas are a common site in the park. Everyone wants to meet the king of the jungle, so be sure to ask the rangers at the gate for an update on their movement. Cheetahs and leopards are also a common site, but it takes a keen eye and luck to spot them. Other species you are likely to see include warthogs, buffalos, giraffes, ostriches, and high-heeled impalas.
Bird lovers will enjoy the parks wetland areas that is home to 400 bird species. The park is less than an hour drive from the city center. Umbato Safaris organizes short excursions to the park and will take care of your parking fees and transfer.
