There was a time not so long ago, when lions freely roamed the streets of Nairobi. Today they can be seen only 14 kilometres from the city center in the Nairobi National Park. The Nairobi National Park boast of being the only Park in the world with such close proximity to a major city.
For short term visitors, this park contains most of the animals to be seen on more extended safari such as the rhino, buffalo, cheetah, zebra, giraffe,plenty of antelopes and gazelles.
The park is best visited early in the morning and the game drive takes 3 to 4 hours. There after you can opt to enjoy breakfast at the famous Rangers restaurant which is been built overlooking a waterhole that periodically attracts game, treating you to an authentic bush experience.
