Take a mini-safari in Nairobi National Park

Travel just a bit south of Nairobi’s busy city center and you’ll find yourself in 117 square kilometers of national park. And while it is relatively small by Kenyan standards, the Nairobi National Park is home to black rhinos, lions, leopards, cheetahs, wildebeests, and many other incredible creatures. The Nairobi Safari Walk, an elevated platform through an area of the park, is stunning.
