Nairobi National Park is a unique ecosystem by being the only protected area in the world close to a capital city. The park is located near the city, only 7 km from Nairobi city centre. It includes Kitengela migration corridor which are important wildlife dispersal areas during the rain season.
Major wildlife attractions are the Black rhino, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, buffaloes, Giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, elands and diverse birdlife recorded. The variety of birds is fascinating. Other attractions include the Ivory burning site Monument, Nairobi Safari Walk, the Orphanage and the walking trails at hippo pools.
This time we took Land Cruiser and went to a game drive. It was my first experience seeing animals up close. These animals were not in cages but living normal life in the open.
We wanted to see lions actually, but came too early in the morning so we were told that the lions were still sleeping. Check what animals and birds we actually saw.
