Nairobi National Park Half-Day Game Drive
- Pickup available
- Duration: 5 hours
- Optional audio guide
We were picked up promptly at home by Shem and taken to the hotel to meet Geoffrey to start our adventure. Both gentlemen were courteous and professional. Geoffrey who took us on the game drive was an impressive and knowledgeable Tour guide and driver given the challenges that we were met with. (Flooding conditions and major pot holes on the trail) Unfortunately we were not able to see Simba, the baboons or the zebra which used to inundate the park. We did manage to see alligators, impalas, rhinos, giraffes, ostrich, buffalo, and birds. We were able to get out and walk around a bit. We were then returned to or drop off point which was much appreciated.
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!
Early morning game drive we saw Buffalos by the roadside,a few Giraffes,Black Backed Jackals,one Secretary Bird,a few Vultures. Highlights for me were one Black Rhino and a Lion pride with cubs along the road. There were five Crocodiles in the pond on the way out. Prompt pickup from our accommodation,friendly driver Tito,a good morning's outing to Nairobi National Park.
Regrettably, the Elephant center was closed due to Covid, it didn't seem to mind the other places. Was sorry we had to miss that. Otherwise, great tour, saw lots of animals at the National Park. Very cordial drivers/tour guides.
We had a lovely day exploring the Nairobi National Park with our guide James! He was very knowledgable and happily answered all out questions! It was a day well spent out in nature.
