I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order. ~ John Burroughs
Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would ever become an addict…..Yes I admit loudly that am a nature addict! Going to a park and seeing animals and nature undisturbed always satisfies my thirst.
The first time my boyfriend and I visited the Nairobi National park, we met a couple who confessed to have fallen in love with the park. They told us that they actually visit the park every Saturday for a Morning game drive. To us that seemed undoable but little did we know it was the starting point of our new addiction. We were infected with the same bug and saying we have fallen in love with the park is an understatement. I won’t mention how many times we have visited the park but I will say we still have more game drives. An outsider would say we need rehab 🙂 but then again it’s a very therapeutic addiction! So we are all good 🙂
Nairobi National Park is the only national park in the world within a major city. It’s located on the outskirts of the country’s capital city of Nairobi along Lang’ata road. It’s a short drive away from the central business district.
The park is home to a wide variety of wildlife including the endangered black rhino, lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, buffaloes, giraffes and diverse birdlife with over 400 species recorded.
The best time to visit the park is early in the morning, specifically a morning game drive at 6.30am. The highlight of my days at the park was seeing a lion hunt. The Lion took its sweet time before it grabbed its prey. I was starting to run out of patience but I can say it was worth the wait.
Here is a glimpse of the photos at the park. Enjoy!
