You don´t have to travel many hours to see wildlife when you are in Nairobi. Close to the City Centre you have Nairobi National Park. Lions, cheetah, leopard, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, crocodile, hippo, gazelle, antelope and more animals can be found here. There are no restaurants inside - but nice picnic areas.
Mt Longonot is a stratovolcano located in the Great Rift Valley of Kenya. It is thought to have last erupted in 1860. The name is a Maasai word meaning “Mountains of many steep ridges”. A climb up Mt Longonot is an ideal day trip from Nairobi.
