Nairobi National Park

Nairobi National Park

Overview

Nairobi National Park is not only an exceptional biological community but it is also one of the most secure places to visit, being extremely close to the capital; the park is just 7 km from central Nairobi. Consisting largely of open grasslands interspersed with acacia shrubs, the park supports a wide biodiversity. The western side consists of dry woodland and a permanent river with associated riverine backwoods. Toward the south are the Athi-Kapiti Plains as well as the Mbagathi River. This boundary is not fenced and connects with the Kitengela Conservation Area which is imperative for wildlife to traverse amid the rainy season. Man made dams inside the park have created further living spaces that now support a wide range of birds and animals. The dams hold water supporting many herbivores especially during the dry season. Significant wildlife attractions include the Black rhino, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, bison, Giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, elands and various birdlife with more than 400 species so far recorded.
