You can get in a pretty nice safari in about 4 hours, including a visit to the animal orphanage there. Safari is road based (dedicated paths). We saw a lioness with 3 cubs, a lion just after it killed a zebra, giraffes, wildebeest, 4 rhinos,...More

Nairobi National Park is unique in the world, no other city has wildlife on their doorstep as Nairobi has. This is not a zoo, it is not fenced in - or it is, but only on the city side (good), but on the back side...More
