Nairobi National Park, Kenya

I was recently in Nairobi with Pete and while there he took me to the Nairobi National Park.  What an incredibly beautiful park!  It is located just 5 miles from the city and is the only protected area in the world with wildlife in the city.

It was exciting to see animals we don’t get in Addo National Elephant park, like one of my all time favourites, the giraffe.  They are such majestic animals.

If you ever have the opportunity to visit Nairobi, Kenya, I highly recommend you make the time to visit the National park.

  2. Hello Mandy,

    Thanks for sharing these magnificent photos. What is the name of the bird in photo no 35? I know we have them here but I cant remember the name. The

    Patterns in the giraffe neck are amazing, can I see a maple leaf there? Hahaha. You had a wonderful experience getting up close to so many animals, and your photography is

    First class. What fun.



  3. I wish they could all be protected FOREVER.
    Such majestic and amazing photos, dear.
    My heart is full with the beauty of them.
    Love and hugs from Duluth, MN. xxxxxxooooo

  4. Absolutely loved your photos, especially the first one. Where else in the world could you see a giraffe with skyscrapers in the background…just great!

  5. I love it when you visit these parks and show us all your images. What an awesome experience. It is very much people from Oz dream about as a once-in-a-lifetime must do. But you need deep pockets from here! Great images xx

    • Thanks Charlie! You always have a place to stay here if and or when you can plan a trip. Our Rand is so weak so the exchange rate should work in your favour. Have a beautiful and happy week ahead. 🙂 xo

    • I too visited the Giraffe refuge on a previous visit – what a privilege to be able to have contact with such magnificent animals! The park reaches right down to the airport and we have seen giraffe on leaving the airport, although we do know that the rangers bring them closer for visitors to see as they head out from the airport. Have a wonderful Fiona. 🙂 xo
