Nairobi National Park is totally unique by being the only protected area in the world with a variety of animals and birds close to a capital city. The park is a huge attraction for visitors to Nairobi.
The park also plays host to many residents and citizens living in the city. Open grass plains with scattered acacia bush are beautifully spread around the park.
The park has a rich/diverse birdlife with 400 species recorded. However all species are not always present and some are seasonal. Northern migrants pass through the park primarily during late March through April.
Nairobi National Park is one of the most successful of Kenya’s rhino sanctuaries that is already generating a stock for reintroduction in the species former range and other upcoming sanctuaries. Due to this success, it is one of the few parks where a visitor can be certain of seeing a black rhino in its natural habitat.
