Nairobi National Park
Located within a 30minutes drive from the Nairobi homestay, the Nairobi National park is one of most unique national parks in the world, in that it is the only National park that borders a capital city. The park is an oasis of green and rolling plains hosting over 100 recorded species of wildlife to include rhino, buffalo, lion, leopard, crocodile and hippo. The park is also home to some very rare black rhinos which were moved here from other parks in the country to save them from poachers. The park is easily accessed by 2WD vehicles making it a perfect spot for a mini-safari within the city.
