Did you know that Nairobi is the only city in the world with a National Park?
The Park is located 7 Km from the City Center and a stone’s throw from the Airport. A complete game drive of the 172 KM2 park will take you 3 to 4 Hours.
The Nairobi National Park is an open Savannah grassland characterized by long grass and muddy earth road. The best way to get around the park, we recommend using our 7X Land Cruiser that has an open hatch as well as an awning which is great for an impromptu picnic!
Apart from the Elephant, all the Big 5 can be seen at the Park, including an abundance population of Giraffe, Zebra, Ostrich and other wild animals.
Our tailor-made Nairobi holidays and tours illuminate the charm of the Kenyan capital, a city that amply rewards those who choose to explore its many charms either before or after their safari. Taking its name from the evocative Maasai phrase meaning ‘the place of cool waters’, Nairobi is often seen merely as a jumping-off point for Kenya’s many incredible wildlife reserves, but to do so means missing out on a wealth of attractions.
On your tour of Nairobi you can explore the popular Karen Blixen Museum, situated in the leafy suburb of Karen. The author of the iconic novel Out of Africa documented her experiences in Nairobi and went on to inspire an Academy Award-winning film.

Did you know Elephants are very sensitive and caring? If a baby Elephant complains, the entire family will go over to soothe it. At the Elephant Orphanage, the Baby Elephants are assigned to one minder, who stays with it until maturity, the minder even shares a banker with the baby and never leaves the baby's side.
Did you know elephants eat each others fresh dung? Most think it is odd but it is to get the necessary bacteria into their stomachs which aids digestion …….
