Fact of the day: Nairobi is the only city in the entire world with a national park!!
One of the things I love most about Nairobi is that you get the best of both worlds. One one side, you have the booming urban core, and on the other, you’ve got the beautiful wildlife – a mini maasai mara just outside the city 🙂 Despite being surrounded by 3 sides of human development, once youre in there you really feel like you’re in a national park and I love that. You’ve got your driver radioing to the other convoys that a pride of lions have been spotted ahead, giraffes strolling past inches beside the car, tourists full of excitement.
Nairobi national park isnt the bigest park, I believe Nairobi National Park is around 117 km² , but dont let that deter you 🙂 the animal diversity is pretty amazing! The park is home to to 100s of species! Sadly elephants are one of the few that are missing (but thats okay because the baby elies at DSWT are just round the other side of the park ;P )
“The only man I envy is the man that has not yet been to Africa, for he has so much to look forward to”
We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful and unique city 🙂
