Nairobi National Park
The park is located in Nairobi – as a capital city, is unique in having a wildlife park on its doorstep. Indeed the city abuts the Nairobi National Park on all but the southern perimeter so it is possible to photograph a rhino, browsing peace fully among the whistling thorn with high-rise office buildings in the backdrop.
Some of the wildlife is migratory and when vegetation and water are present outside the Park, they move out into Masai land through the unfenced southern boundary.
There is also a resident population of plains game and predators so a visit at any time of the year is a rewarding experience. Well laid out, with exceptionally well-maintained roads, the Park is a model for all others, geophysical and administratively.
Of the most popular species only the elephant is an absentee. But the rest of the Big Five: leopard, lion, buffalo and rhino – as well as a multitude of other creatures are all well represented.
