Do you want to escape to nature for a day? Then this is the perfect trip for you! Nairobi national park one-day safari tour offers you a chance to see more than 100 species of animals including the lions, cheetahs, leopards, giraffes, buffalo, hippos, rhinos, zebras, gazelles, impala, elands, hartebeests, wildebeests, hyena, jackals, civet cats and many more.

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 abundance 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.

Program:
There will be an early morning pick up from the hotel you are staying to proceed to the park.

There are more animals to see in your Nairobi national park day tour. 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.

CHECKLIST


Here are some of our recommendations to you for getting through a safari:

  • Plenty of sun protection, lotion or cream (High SPF)
  • A wide-brimmed hat to shade you from the sun, this should have string/straps if standing in the van or jeep as it could be blown off.
  •  A good pair of sunglasses as you are on the equator where the sun is very strong. Prescription sun spectacles are not recommended as may scratch or fall off the vehicles.
  •  Bottle’s or jugs of water to keep you hydrated. Spending a lot of time in the sun, even when wearing hats and sunglasses will dehydrate you in most cases
  • A fleece/jumper/sweater for the early morning (or a safari jacket) and evening game drives, as it tends to get very chilly, especially in the highlands and in the Masai Mara.
  • Shorts and t-shirts or light trousers for the daytime.
  • Long trousers and long or short-sleeved shirts for the evening and protection from mosquitoes
  •  Plenty of film or flash card memory for your camera and a battery charger for all electronic devices.
  •  Swimming costumes/bathing suits as most of the lodges and camps have swimming pools.
  •  A good pair of binoculars (there’s usually just one pair in vehicles).
  •  A pair of safari shoes or trekking boots.
  • A pack of wet wipes.
  •  Mosquito repellent.
