Half-Day Nairobi National Park Safari from Nairobi with Pickup

114 reviews
Take a game drive and spot some of Kenya’s “Big Five” without truly leaving Nairobi on this experience. Ideal for those short on time in Kenya, this budget-friendly, half-day safari trip takes place in Nairobi National Park, a reserve close to the city where you can see lion, rhino, buffalo, cheetah, and more in the wild. A choice of departures and return hotel or airport transfers make everything extra easy.

Maybe it’s because I have seen beautiful tea and coffee plantations in East Africa prior to visiting, but I am a huge fan of the Out of Africa movie and found the tour a bit overpriced and disappointing. The house is quite small and tour in maybe 15-20min and the garden grounds are nothing special. The old coffee machine isn’t there anymore but they have a reproduction dating from the movie filming. It’s nice but considering how far off the city center it is and value for money, I would not necessarily recommend unless you are already in the area.

Amazing place that has been well preserved but why the double standards? i am a Kenyan citizen and was promptly asked to put away my phone as taking pictures is prohibited but why then was a group of tourists allowed to flaunt those very restrictions and were happily clicking away? should we not learn to appreciate our own citizens or are we still suffering from an inferiority complex?

I loved the movie Out of Africa and therefore this was a must visit location for us during our time in Nairobi. The house itself is quute simple but charming. Takes one back to that era when life was so different yet more charming and romantic.

Kudos to the manager! We had traveled a long day to visit this house only to find that they were closed due to the lack of visitors and had scheduled repairs and spraying. When we expressed our desire to visit and our long drive, the manager personally conducted a tour for us. He was very accommodating and pleasant to us.
