Exploring the Nairobi Safari Walk: An Affordable Adventure
Some of the perks of living in Nairobi is convenient access to wildlife via the national park and the Nairobi Safari Walk. It’s been a long and grim Nairobi winter and naturally, I thought it would be a good time to leave the comfort of my sheets and go gallivanting. I hit up my creator friends Mercy and Sharon and we decided to spend a day at the Nairobi Safari Walk.
If you’ve been here for a while, you may remember that the very first blog post here was a review of my experience at the Park. It’s been seven glorious years since then and I can’t help but marvel at the growth. Thank YOU so much for being here!
The Safari Walk is an incredible way to get a taste of what to expect on a safari in Kenya. It is an affordable way to see wildlife and spend time in nature. I highly recommend it for a chill day out solo, with your person, family, and friends.
Here is what to expect.
Nairobi Safari Walk Location
The Safari Walk is located inside KWS Headquarters on Lang’ata Road. It is conveniently located about thirty minutes away from Nairobi CBD, near major malls, hospitals and airports.
It is easily accessible by both public and private means. If using public means, board a matatu going to Lang’ata (number 15) from Bus Station or board a matatu going to Ongata Rongai (number 125/126) from Railways Bus Station. Alternatively, you can hail a taxi to and from your home or accommodation.
Nairobi Safari Walk Entry Fees
