Nairobi N. P.
Nairobi National Park is a treasure which many visitors to Kenya don't discover. It's only a short distance outside the city - right next to the airports - and most of the safari companies do half-day trips, bookable from most city hotels. Alternatively, you could contact one of the safari companies directly (Express Group Travel definitely do this) and book a private trip (take a picnic) - even all day won't let you cover all the park properly. You could hire a car (not recommended on your first trip - a good driver/guide will help you to get the most out of your visit, and will be able to get information about where various animals are.)

You can have a short walk at the Hippo pools, under the watchful eye of an askari. Here, Duncan encountered a Maasai Giraffe on the path - and drew it!
