Nairobi National Park lies within sight of Nairobi city, and animals can be seen against a backdrop of high-rise buildings. The park’s proximity to a large urban center is unique in Africa. A visit makes for an excellent break from the hustle and bustle of the city, and wildlife viewing is surprisingly good. Most big safari animals are present (except elephants), which can be seen in other places. There is a small walk at the entrance leading through indigenous forest, and several wildlife enclosures with some unusual animals including bongo antelope.
