Nairobi National Park is located just seven kilometres from the city centre, and Nairobi’s most popular tourist attraction. It is unique in being the only protected area in the world close to a capital city. Open grassy plains with scattered acacias dominate the savannah ecosystem. Man-made dams within the park have added a further habitat for a variety of birds and other aquatic creatures.
There are over a hundred mammal species, including Black rhino, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, Coke’s hartebeest, buffalo, Masai giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, and eland. Over 400 species of birds have been recorded in the park. Other attractions include the Ivory burning Site Monument, the Nairobi Safari Walk and Animal Orphanage. This National Park has a rhino sanctuary used for breeding and restocking other parks.
