Welcome to Kenya's most accessible yet incongruous safari experience. Set on the city's southern outskirts, Nairobi National Park (at 117 sq km, one of Africa's smallest) has abundant wildlife that can, in places, be viewed against a backdrop of city skyscrapers and planes coming in to land – it's one of the only national parks on earth bordering a capital city. Remarkably, the animals seem utterly unperturbed by it all.
The Carnivore is not just a restaurant – it is an experience. Travellers from the world over flock to this outstanding venue for what is hailed as the ultimate "Beast of a Feast". Barbecue lovers will savour the unique tastes on offer, from traditional lamb, pork, beef and chicken to the more uncommon ostrich, crocodile and camel. The prime meat is ceremoniously roasted to perfection on Maasai swords hung over a huge charcoal pit and carvers then move from table to table delivering unlimited amounts onto cast iron plates.
Located just 7kms from Nairobi's city centre, Nairobi National Park is the perfect place for a half-day or full day excursion from the Kenyan capital. One of the only places on earth where you can be on safari with skyscrapers as part of your backdrop, it's an ideal layover escape or add-on to your existing safari.
With dozens of incredible sites and this full-day tour showcases some of the best of this East African city.You'll have the chance to see some of the nation's most iconic animals in the wild.
