Nairobi Night Safari

Nairobi National Park Night Game Drives (2.5 Hours)

Nairobi National Park Night Game Drives are a more exciting way to spend a night in Nairobi. Nairobi National Park is completely different in the dark. The big cats come out to hunt and you will see animals you won’t see during the day.

It’s a completely different world. Lions sleep all day and hunt in the evening, most of the cats are active just before and after sunset and this is when we take our guests on night game drives.

With a spotter and a light we look and listen for the animals, it’s an amazing experience. Animal behavior is quite different at night so observing the animals in the dark is a big part of any safari.

Karen Blixen Museum – Kenya Tours (Nairobi Excursion)

Nairobi national park

Nairobi National Park

Nairobi National Park is located in Nairobi – as a capital city, is unique in having a wildlife park on its doorstep. Indeed the city abuts the Nairobi National Park on all but the southern perimeter so it is possible to photograph a rhino, browsing peace fully among the whistling thorn with high-rise office buildings in the backdrop.

Some of the wildlife is migratory and when vegetation and water are present outside the Park, they move out into Masai land through the unfenced southern boundary.

There is also a resident population of plains game and predators so a visit at any time of the year is a rewarding experience. Well laid out, with exceptionally well-maintained roads, the Park is a model for all others, geophysical and administratively.

Of the most popular species only the elephant is an absentee. But the rest of the Big Five: leopard, lion, buffalo and rhino – as well as a multitude of other creatures are all well represented.
