Nairobi National Park
Nairobi is the only city in the world that is gazed upon by zebra, lion and rhino — in the wild. Nairobi National Park was established in 1946 long before the city burst its seams. Located just 7km from the city center, Nairobi National Park has a remarkably diverse eco-system for its size (117 km2). It is home to black rhino, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, elands, hippo and more than 400 species of birds. You can enjoy weekly wildlife sightings by checking out http://nairobinationalpark.wildlifedirect.org/ (CnP into your browser address bar). The park plays a vital role in education, it’s proximity to the city allows easy access to school children who may otherwise never get a chance to go on safari. Game drives and a “safari walk” are on offer for visitors.
