Welcome to Kenya’s most accessible yet incongruous national park in Kenya. 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 into land – it's the only national park on earth bordering a capital city. Remarkably, the animals seem utterly unperturbed by it all.
