Nairobi National Park is unique in that nowhere else in the world exists a wildlife reserve with such a variety of animals and birds so close to a major city.
The Nairobi National Park is located literally within earshot of downtown traffic. It is a small, superb park that contains most of the animals to be seen on an extended safari – Rhino, Buffalo, Cheetah, Zebra, Giraffe and plenty of Antelope and Gazelle.
The park also possesses a diversity of environs. Much of the park is predominated by open plains country. However, there is a section of highland forest as well as stretches of broken bush country, deep, rocky valleys and gorges with scrub and long grass.
At the main entrance to the Park is the Animal Orphanage, which cares for semi-tame, orphaned and wounded animals.
