Visit the Nairobi National Park only a few kilometers from the city center. Have a chance to spot at least 4 of the big five, only the elephant is absent. Gazzeted in 1946 , the park features 46 square miles of pristine savanna and yet it is only six miles from city centre. Bounded by Hippopool there are two animal orphanages inclusive of David Shedrick Home for orphaned Elephants and Rhinos. You will chat with Nature yet so close in the modern bustle of the city.
Nairobi National Park
The Nairobi National Park
is a national park in Kenya. Established in 1946, the national park was Kenya’s first. It is located approximately 7 kilometres (4 mi) south of the centre of Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city, with an electric fence separating the park’s wildlife from the metropolis. Nairobi’s skyscrapers can be seen from the park. The proximity of urban and natural environments has caused conflicts between the animals and local people and threatens animals’ migration routes.
