The animals are easy to spot and you should look out for the white and black rhinos in the park as they are a main item on your game driving experience. The lions will take some time to track but eventually you will find them. Hippos can be seen at the river or in some of the numerous man made earth dams in the park. Cheetahs are mostly fond of staying at the large plains to the southernmost fringes of the park where plains game prey is plentiful and easy to catch.

Nairobi National Park

Nairobi National Park, although the smallest at 117 sq km, should not be judged by its size – against the backdrop of the city skyscrapers, it is home to an abundant of wildlife. The park is home to the world’s densest concentration of black rhinoceros.

Due to the park’s wetland areas, many species of prey, such as gazelle, warthog, zebra giraffes and ostriches graze on this land. That being said, lions and hyenas are also commonly sighted within the park. There is also approximately 400 bird species found in the park.

Daphne Sheldrick’s Elephant Orphanage is a non-profit trust, established in 1977, shortly after the death of David Sheldrick. Together with his wife, Daphne, they pioneered techniques for raising orphaned black rhinos and elephants to reintroduce them back into the wild, the trust retains close links with Tasvo National Park and is one of Nairobi’s most popular attractions.

The Giraffe Centre, established by Jock and Betty Leslie-Melville in 1979 is a sanctuary for rare Rothschild giraffes. The centre has a feeding platform where they can exchange kisses with visitors for pelleted food. Experts also present a private briefing on the Centre’s work on how to save this endangered species.
