The Basics

Nairobi National Park ranks among Africa’s most accessible wildlife experiences, offering the chance to spot some of the continent’s most iconic species in as little as a half-day trip from downtown Nairobi. Explore on a safari tour, enjoy picnic sites and campsites, and hike an assortment of walking trails in this nature escape. Half-day and full-day tours allow visitors to drive through the park’s grass plains with the capital’s skyscrapers as a backdrop, spotting endangered animal species in their natural habitat. It’s also possible to visit on a more comprehensive Nairobi tour to also see nearby highlights such as the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, the Giraffe Center, the Karen Blixen Museum, and the Nairobi National Museum.

A great day in Nairobi
Tha safari through the park was fantastic. I saw hippos, rhinos, giraffes, lions, zebra and much more. The giraffe center was informative and feeding the giraffes was a fun experience. Throughout, George was informative and friendly. He went above and beyond to make sure I had a good experience.

Half-Day Nairobi National Park Tour from Nairobi
We had a wonderful safari tour! If I could give higher than a 5-star rating, I definitely would!!! I honestly was not expecting to see nearly as many animals as we did on our morning drive through Nairobi National Park. George, our safari guide, did an excellent job at providing information about what we were seeing, and then quizzing us later on what we'd learned! I'd definitely recommend this tour!

John was informed and agreed job was performed. We really enjoyed the safari into Nairobi National Park. We are considering hiring them for a trip to the Massive village if we have enough time left to fit it in

1 Day Nairobi Tour with Park, Elephant Orphanage Giraffe Center Guided Tour
I had plenty of time to go on a 3-4 day Safari but I decided to take this tour to see the wildlife. The Nairobi National Park is expansive and the wildlife abundant. We saw all of the animals up close including multiple Lions, Rhinos, and buffalo, herds of Zebra and Giraffe, crocodile, baboon, multiple bird species and Giselle. Great value and photography on this one day safari. The orphanages are a bonus.

Day Tour at Nairobi National Park elephant orphanage, giraffe cent karen museum
Wonderful, wonderful experience ! How fortunate was I to book this! In the centre of Nairobi , 100 km of land devoted to the preservation of wildlife ( I’m talking giraffes, zebras, lions etc) and I witnessed it all. I must say our guide went far beyond his services by assuring we were in close proximity to all these beautiful animals........ they were great guides too !

Nairobi National Park Half Day Trip Guided Tour
Our tour led by Titus was executed to perfection. We were able to see most of the BIG 4 but the highlight was witnessing live the Lion hunting the Buffalo. My entire family was on edge and it was a memorable experience they will never forget because we went on this tour. I definitely recommend! Plus they are affordable and give great service! - Brittany O.

Nairobi National Park Game Drive free airport pick and drop off.
Excellent experience with James the driver. Pick up from hotel in a separate car then met James at the park for an afternoon tour. Saw some fantastic rhinos, giraffes, impala, warthogs etc up close with lots of photo opportunities, with some interesting commentary in an open top van. Followed by a short stop at a cafe/tourist shop before ride home

How to Get There

Nairobi National Park lies roughly six miles (10 kilometers) south of Nairobi’s city center. Visitors must enter the park in a vehicle, and a guided safari tour is the easiest (and most rewarding) way to visit. Most tours to the park include hotel pickup and drop-off in the capital city. The closest major airport is Jomo Kenyatta International.

Show all


When to Get There

The dry season (July to September) is the best time to spot animals within the park. Avoid April through June, when heavy rains can make spotting wildlife difficult and a 4-wheel-drive vehicle is necessary for visiting certain areas of the park.

Four of the Big Five in Nairobi National Park

Nairobi National Park is home to four of the Big Five safari animals: lions, buffalo, leopards, and rhinos. In fact, the park contains the highest density of black rhinos anywhere in Kenya. What you won’t find here are elephants. While the park once had an African elephant population, the animals were relocated to reduce unnecessary contact between humans and wildlife.
