 Itinerary:

 Day 1: Nairobi – Nairobi National Park

 In the morning, you will be met by the Tour Guide who will welcome you and brief you about your safari before departing to Nairobi National Park for a 4 hour excursion. You will spend the morning exploring the extensive Park, which is full of deep river valleys and gorges, diverse habitats, rolling grassy plains, riverine woodlands, dense thickets, rocky gorges, man-made dams and pools, and also looking out for a variety of wild animals such as the lion, leopard, cheetah, hippo, crocodile, monkey and giraffe amongst other animal species. After the excursion, the driver/guide will transfer you back to your hotel.

 Nairobi National Park is the only park located within a City. It was established in 1946 and was the first National Park in Kenya. It is located approximately 7 kilometers south of the centre of Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city, with only a fence separating the park’s wildlife from the metropolis. Nairobi’s skyscrapers can be seen from the park. Indeed, the proximity of urban and natural environments has caused conflicts between the animals and local people and threatens animals’ migration routes. The 117 km2 Nairobi National Park is unique by being the only protected area in the world with a variety of animals and birds close to a capital city. As expected, the park is a principal attraction for visitors to Nairobi. Still, despite its proximity to civilization and relative small size for an African national park, Nairobi National Park boasts a large and varied wildlife population. Migrating herbivores gather in the park during the dry season, the park is one of Kenya’s most successful rhinoceros 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. Open grass plains with scattered acacia bush are predominant. The Park has a diversity of environments with characteristic fauna and flora. The park has a rich and diverse bird life 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. To the south of the park is the Athi-Kapiti Plains and Kitengela Migration and dispersal area. These are vital areas for herbivores dispersal during the rains and concentrate in the park in the dry season. The western side has a highland dry forest and a permanent river with a riverine forest in the south. In addition, there are stretches of broken bush country and deep, rocky valleys and gorges with scrub and long grass. Man-made dams have also added a further habitat, favorable to certain species of birds and other aquatic biota (life forms).
