"Wildlife, tradition, sight-seeing and eating out" National Park Tip by Robert_Hun

National Park, Nairobi: 21 reviews and 29 photos

  Giraffe center close to Nairobi
by Robert_Hun
 
 

While in Nairobi it's near and easy to get to the Nairobi National Park (a sort of a safari experience virtually within the city). There is an adjacent zoo (orphanage) and a giraffe center where you can feed the animals.
The "Bomas of Kenya" (near to the above places) give you a funny experience of the dances and traditional huts of Kenyan tribes.
A half-day sight-seeing of the city center is worth considering (especially if you like to see contrasts of rich and poor, modern and scruffy).
A great culinary experience (especially for meat lovers) is the world-famous Carnivore restaurant with the possibility to taste some local game.
