Description

Even if your visit to Kenya is limited to Nairobi you can still enjoy the country’s spectacular wildlife with a visit to this swath of wilderness just 15 minutes outside the city center. The 117 km2 of protected space is home to lions, rhinos, cheetahs, zebras, hippos, gazelle, and a healthy collection of other species including over 400 different types of birds. The park can be easily navigated with most cars so you don’t have to worry about arranging a specially outfitted 4x4. You can explore the savannah and forests at your own pace and without a hired guide. At the Athi River hippo pool on the southwestern edge of the park you can stretch your legs and take a walk accompanied by an armed ranger who will not only protect you from feisty critters but can tell you a bit about what you’re seeing. At the Main Gate you’ll find the Kenya Wildlife Service headquarters. The complex includes attractions open to the public like the Safari Walk, Animal Orphanage, a gift shop, and café.
