The park was established in 1946 and attracts visitors from different parts of the world due to its unique wildlife. It is mainly an open grassland at the backdrop of the city with scattered acacia trees and a small thick forest.

Nairobi Park is home to various animals, including giraffes, hyenas, buffalos, leopards, lions, rhinos, cheetahs, leopards, and over 400 bird species. There are also picnic facilities for group activities like team building, picnics, film and video production, weddings, bush dinners, and corporate events.

A Nairobi National Park tour should see you visit most of these sites, such as Impala, Kingfisher, Mokoyiet, and Historic Ivory Burning Sites. Nairobi National Park Entry Fee for an adult is USD 60 (or 40), while for a child is USD 20.
