Unfortunately I waited until the last minute (Night before) to organize Sunrise game drive at Nairobi National Park. However, We were connected with an excellent guide who took us on an outstanding drive where we viewed lions, rhinos, giraffes, and other large and small animals in spite of a rainy morning (with lots of mud). Drive and subsequent visit to Giraffe center were excellent. Guides were knowledgeable and professional. Well done!

My son and I had an amazing tour with Fanuel as our guide. Fanuel picked us up early, was welcoming, and extremely knowledgeable of animal life and habits sharing this information as we toured the park. We will not forget this experience as long as we live & highly recommend to others.

Great taste of the wild within the city

We didnt have time to leave the city so this was an excellent option that gave us a taste of the wild within a manageable time period. The guide came to pick us up on time and it was very well organised and friendly and we got to see many animals. Even a lion!
