Kenya’s first national park, Nairobi National Park is a haven for wildlife and only 7 km from the skyscrapers of Nairobi’s city center. In addition to the rhinos, visitors may spot lions, gazelles, buffaloes, warthogs, cheetahs, zebras, giraffes, and ostriches, and more than 400 species of birds have been recorded in the wetlands. The Nairobi Safari Walk is a popular attraction offering animal lovers the chance to spot wildlife on foot, and walking trails weave around the area known as Hippo Pools. At the park’s main gate, visitors can bond with orphaned baby elephants and rhinos at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
