Nairobi National Park

Nairobi National Park is full wildlife resort of 117 square kilometers located just outside Nairobi. It’s one of the few places on the world where you can be in the middle of Kenya’s wild nature with a 30 minute taxi ride from a capital’s city centre. This park is the oldest of all the Kenya national parks and reserves. It consists mainly of savannah, swampland and forest around the river. The highest point of the park, Impala Hill, is ideal to scan the park with a binocular for wildlife, and is also a picnic site.

The animals seem rather undisturbed by the nearby city and the airplanes coming over from Kenyatta airport. The park has the biggest concentration of black rhinos in the world – more than 50 have been recorded. These rhinos can be easily spotted in the forest glades in the west side of the park. The park also has the second biggest annual migration of herbivores – after the ‘Wildebeest Migration’ of Masai Mara National Reserve.
Furthermore, lions, cheetahs, leopards, giraffes, wildebeests, hyenas, and of course many antelopes and zebras. Also over 550 species of birds have been recorded in the wetland areas. However, elephants are absent.

The park isn’t fenced – except on the northern border, before the Nairobi suburbs – and animals can go from the park to the Rift Valley through a narrow wildlife corridor. As there is always plenty of water in the park – especially in the northern part – many additional animals come into the park in the dry seasons
