    This is a fantastic center that rescues and rehabilitates wounded and orphaned animals. It's located just outside the gates of Nairobi National Park, making it an easy stop during a safari outing. They have a wide range of animals you might not see in the wild elsewhere and, best of all, perform a critical service to Kenya's wildlife!

    It might seem counterintuitive to visit a zoo while in Africa but the Nairobi Safari Walk is worth a look. Whether it's the albino zebras you're interested in or the very rare bongo, a type of antelope you probably won't ever see in the wild, there are enough unusual animals there to interest even those who have just come back from a safari. It's located at the Kenya Wildlife Service headquarters right next to Nairobi National Park. Most of the animals there were rescued from illegal trade or were taken into the KWS's care due to being injured or orphaned. The enclosures are very well done and are on par with most Western animal parks.

    Though it may not be a highlight of your trip, the Safari Walk is worth a visit. Call ahead to ask for feeding times, and plan your trip to coincide with them. Best tip: The cheetahs are orphans rescued at birth, and have been raised by the Kenya Wildlife Service. The wardens can be sweet-talked to let you into the cage to pet the now full-grown but docile cats.

    To be able to stroke a Cheetah that seemed so calm was such an experience I just cannot forget.

Description

Albino zebras, pigmy hippos, bongos, leopards, and rhinos are some residents at the Safari Walk. The small but impressive zoo is a great introduction to African wildlife, giving visitors the chance to learn about the animals they’ll see on safari as well as the opportunity to see rare animals they probably wouldn’t encounter in the wild.
