For travelers like me, wanting to see African wildlife, but not on a safari, this was perfect! Took a bus tour through the national park and was able to see many animals in their natural environment.

Maybe it was the time of year we were there but there wasn't a lot of animals in general. Also when we were trying to find the lions there were 7-8 cars looking for them, so when they wanted to hunt they stopped and went into hiding because there was to much detraction. It is fine if you are in... More

Loved this park, been to most parks in Kenya and Tanzania, each one is unique but in here we saw lions walking down the road, giraffes next to the truck, water buffaloes plentiful.

Its one of those sites you visit to see wild animals. Yes in the wild within a 10 min drive from CBD. But if u expect too much wild its not that kind. The animal orphanage just at the park, however, offers you that at close up. So visit enjoy as long as of course you dont think its Masaai... More

We saw a multitude of animals and birds. Especially near the dam area. My only complaint is the bad condition of the roads in the park. They need to do some work on them. Especially since addmision fees are not cheap.

We did a safari here and it was great! The entrance procedure took a while, but once you're in, it's great! The park is not big enough to 'house' elephants, but if you're lucky you will see giraffes rhinos, antilopes, lions, birds, zebras and other wildlife. The city skyline on the background is surreal and it's proof that humans are... More

My first time in Kenya on Business and I decided to go for a Safari which is something I would not miss. The National Park is so huge, you can wonder for hours and hours. I enjoyed the thrill you get knowing that you are entering an un-known place and as the driver rightly said "expect the un-expected". The animals... More

We did a 4 hour safari at the National Park. Amazing time! There is a ticket fee plus the sarafi fee so be aware of that. We have 7 lions
