Wildlife in the Nairobi NP

There is a huge variety of wildlife in the Nairobi National Park, including the big cats (lion, leopard, cheetah) and rhino. And of course a huge variety of other animals in good numbers. Bird watchers will also love the park as a huge variety can be found here.

The city backdrop behind the open plains

Where else in the world can you drive in a national park, admire all the animals around you and still have the buildings of the nation's capital as a backdrop to this stunning natural environment.

Tree climbing lions in the Nairobi National Park

If you are lucky you might find one of the tree climbing lionesses up a tree. Especially on a hot day after a meal, you might find them in the tree to find some breeze to cool off. Definitely an odd and interesting sight.

Picnic in the Nairobi NP

Don’t be fooled by its city location, as Nairobi National Park is large, much larger than you would expect and you probably won’t be able to see all of it in just a day visit.

Enjoy cruising around the national park’s tracks, watch wildlife come for a drink at one of the waterholes or streams, have a picnic, stretch your legs at the hippo pool, and enjoy a walk to the hippo pool.

Having a picnic in the park is popular and there are several great sites where you can get out of the car to enjoy your lunch. Don’t forget to check the area for animals as they are not fenced off.

Spend the night in the Nairobi NP

If you want to really make it special you spend the night in the Nairobi NP. There is one tented camp right in the middle of the forested area so you can extend your time in the bush sitting around the campfire at night with a drink and watching the fireflies dancing in the distance. After breakfast the next morning you head out for another game drive, before leaving the park, maybe straight to the airport?

 

Information for visitors

Did you know?

  • Ask the rangers at the gate where animals (for example lions, rhinos, leopards, servals and other unusual animals) have been spotted to give you a good chance to find them using the junction number closest to the animal. But remember, this is no guarantee as animals roam freely. The Nairobi National Park is not a zoo.
  • If you are short on time and still want the full safari experience, it is possible to spend the night in Nairobi National Park in a tented camp. This is also an excellent way to spend your first or last night in Kenya as it is located close to the airport.
  • Even though technically there are no elephants in the Nairobi NP, the elephant orphans of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust come to the park with their keepers every day of the year.

The only option to stay overnight in the Nairobi NP is in a tented camp and when staying there all food is provided. It is great to take a picnic into the national park and make use of one of the picnic sites inside the Nairobi National Park where you are allowed outside your vehicle and picnic tables are provided. Just remember, these picnic areas are not fenced so it is important to remain vigilant at all times as all animals do visit these areas, you are a guest in their home. Be especially aware of the baboons and do not feed them or any of the other animals.
