At only 7 kilometres from the Kenyan capital, Nairobi National Park has a savannah teeming with wildlife and a wonderful view of the Nairobi skyline. The collection of wildlife is really impressive. The park is home to the world's largest number of the almost extinct black rhinos, as well as buffalos, lions and zebras.
The park entrance is only a 15-minute drive from Nairobi. Although the park literally borders onto the backyards of some houses, you may still be able to spot 4 of the Big Five on a safari. The only animal of the Big Five you will certainly not encounter is the African elephant. Although Nairobi National Park is very compact and one of Africa’s smallest wildlife parks in terms of space, it is still home to at least 100 species of mammals and 400 species of birds: a wonderful spot to take some beautiful photos.
