This is a great extension to your safari around Nairobi National Park. Run by the Kenya Wildlife Service, who manage the country’s national parks and reserves, the Nairobi Safari Walk is essentially a zoo-like experience that provides you with a glimpse into the incredible biodiversity of Kenya’s protected areas.
With its raised wooden boardwalk that allows for uninterrupted views of the animals, the Safari Walk is a showcase for Kenya’s Parks and Reserves, allowing visitors to discover what they can expect to see across the country. Visitors can see a sample of the country’s rich animal life including the rare bongo, white rhino and albino zebra as well as big cats, antelopes, and primates. It is also home to some 150 species of local trees.
The walk takes you through three stages that mimic the nation’s major ecosystems – wetlands, savannah, forests – and past a wide variety of wildlife. The walk is a favourite with children, who love getting close to the animals, and there is also a Children’s Museum that you can visit before leaving.
