Explore African Animal Kingdom the Best Way at Nairobi National Park Tour
Do you get goosebumps when you get the thoughts of watching the African animal kingdom up close? Want to experience it once in your lifetime? Then we at Plain Wings Tours and Safaris would suggest you go for the Nairobi National Park tour. Why? Because the Nairobi National Park can let you get a glimpse of almost every African animal you have ever heard of and beyond.
The national park lies just outside of Nairobi about 7 kilometers from the city and is the first National Park to be opened in Kenya. As far as the size of the national park is concerned it is one of the smallest ones in Africa, but don’t let that discourage you. You can discover a wide variety of wildlife here. From game viewing to safari tours and more, this place offers you everything that will lift your adventurous spirit a notch higher. You can also take delight in watching the utterly unperturbed animals from the skyscrapers while enjoying the picturesque sights of Nairobi. You can also find the Mbagathi River flowing across where animals often migrate at will.
Tip: To see more number of animals in the park you must plan your visit in the dry season!

What else you can explore on your Nairobi National Park tour?
- David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Sanctuary
A sanctuary ran by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in the park that does hand-rearing of orphaned elephant and rhinoceros calves which they release later on into secure sanctuaries. The sanctuary brings orphaned and sick animals from all over Kenya and treats them.
- The Ivory Burning Site Monument
Also, there is the Ivory Burning Site Monument which is the spot where Kenyan president Daniel Arap Moi burnt 12 tons of ivory in 1989. The intention behind this step was to stop the killing of elephants and dispirit ivory buyers all over the world. And this dramatic event helped in improving the conservation image of Kenya to a great extent.
