Nairobi is Kenya’s capital city. Already an up and coming city in the tech hub game, the city has Nairobi National Park, a large game reserve known for breeding endangered black rhinos and home to giraffes, zebras and lions. Next to it is a well-regarded elephant orphanage operated by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Nairobi is also often used as a jumping-off point for safari trips elsewhere in Kenya. We bring you some of the most stunning landscapes featuring wild animals never seen anywhere.
Nairobi Arboretum is located along state house road in the area of Kilimani, Nairobi Kenya. It was founded in 1907 in a bid to try out new forestry trees. It was later gazetted as a national reserve in 1932 by the government and issuance of a title deed was later conducted by the commissioner of lands to the government in 1996.
Karura Forest is an urban forest in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya. The forest was gazetted in 1932 and is managed by the Kenya Forest Service in conjunction with the Friends of Karura Forest Community Forest Association. Often a hotspot for picnics and excursion, this place is highly recommended.
Hell's Gate National Park
Hell's Gate National Park lies south of Lake Naivasha in Kenya, north west of Nairobi. Hell's Gate National Park is named after a narrow break in the cliffs, once a tributary of a prehistoric lake that fed early humans in the Great Rift Valley. Spectacular scenery including the towering cliffs and belching plumes of geothermal steam makes it one of the most atmospheric parks in Africa.
Nairobi Safari Walk
With its raised wooden boardwalk that allows for uninterrupted views of the animals, the Safari Walk is a show case for Kenya's Parks and Reserves, allowing visitors to discover what they can expect to see across the country. Meandering through a dense forest reserve, expect lions, rhinos, cheetahs and leopards.
