Explore Nairobi’s wild side with this full day Nairobi excursion with Vacay Holiday
Stunning landscapes of the Nairobi National Park and sweeping views of the big 4 –
Lion, rhino, buffalo, leopard and other animals will fill you with awe.
You will then visit the David Shedrick Elephant Orphanage and the Giraffe Centre,
which is home to the endangered Rothschild giraffe.
Since opening in 1979, the center has rescued, hand-reared and then released back into
the wild around 500 orphaned giraffes.
In this Nairobi excursion, you will get to feed the giraffes from a raised observation
was established in 1946 about 7 km (4.3 mi) south of Nairobi. It is fenced on three sides, whereas the open southern boundary allows migrating wildlife to move between the park and the adjacent Kitengela plains. Herbivores gather in the park during the dry season. Nairobi National Park is negatively affected by increasing human and livestock populations, changing land use and poaching of wildlife. Despite its proximity to the city and its relative small size, it boasts a large and varied wildlife population, and is one of Kenya’s most successful rhinoceros sanctuaries
A short drive out of Nairobi’s central business district is the Nairobi National Park. Wide open grass plains and backdrop of the city scrapers, scattered acacia bush play host to a wide variety of wildlife including the endangered black rhino, lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, buffaloes, giraffes and diverse birdlife with over 400 species recorded. Visitors can enjoy the park’s picnic sites, three campsites and the walking trails for hikers.
