The only capital city in the planet earth that has a national park few kilometers from the city center. Nairobi National Park was the first park to be gazetted in Kenya in 1946.
Wide open grass plains with beautiful backdrop of the Nairobi’s skyline and vast variety of wildlife including the endangered Black Rhino, Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Spotted Hyena, Buffalo, Giraffes, Zebra, Impala, Grants Gazelle among other grazers.
Bird lovers will also enjoy 400 recorded bird species in the park with over 20 seasonal European migrants. I was able to spot Yellow-Billed Stock, Hadada Ibis, Ostrich, Spur-winged Lapwing, Helmeted Guinea Fowl, Sperb Sterling.
Below are photos that I managed to capture at Nairobi National Park.
I was not lucky to get a clear shot of a lion that was lying on grass but I really enjoyed the experience of being in a wildlife park just minutes away from the central business district of Nairobi.
Thanks for reading!
