About Nairobi National Park

Welcome to Kenya's first National Park, with its own unique ecosystem and a specially protected area with a variety of birds and animals, in a location conveniently and surprisingly close to the city. Majestic black rhinos reside here in the protected rhino sanctuaries that are already generating a stock for reintroduction in the species' former habitat and other upcoming sanctuaries. Covering just over 115 square kilometers, it is a true representation of Kenyan geography with its beautiful plains with a Savannah landscape and the Embakasi river with lush vegetation alongside.

Must See
