Nairobi Safaris - 5 Best Day Trip Destinations from Nairobi

You can experience a day trip in Nairobi if you only have 24 hours to do a safari before heading home.

Here are the best day trips you can try while in Nairobi:

1. Nairobi National Park

The Nairobi National Park is an absolute gem. The backgrounding city scrapers blend seamlessly with the sunburned open plains, scattered acacias, and wildlife.

It is charming, broad and verdant, and a more than deserving day trip destination for your Nairobi safari packages.

Over 400 bird species and a vast wildlife population, including black rhinos, cheetahs, giraffes, hyenas, lions, and buffaloes, call it home.

Similarly striking is the Nairobi Animal Orphanage which lies inside the park.

Watch as injured lions, hyenas, cheetahs, leopards, monkeys, baboons, warthogs, and jackals are nursed back to life and feel inspired to adopt a wild one or two.

If gorgeous panorama and up-close encounters with wildlife speak to your kind of wanderlust, stop by the Nairobi Safari Walk.

An enthralling 7km boardwalk offers awe-inducing views of the beautiful variety scattered over the Nairobi National Park.

Things to Do

  • Picnicking
  • Camping
  • Nature walks
  • Hiking

2. Lake Nakuru National Park

Lake Nakuru National Park is a stunning park located 163km from the country’s capital.

Magnificence is the language here, and the flamingo carpeted lake more than proves that point.

Head to this park by the lake for a fantastic showcase of its lush grasslands, woodlands, picturesque ridges, and escarpments.

And for unforgettable sightings of its over 56 different mammal species, over 450 bird species, and the out-of-Africa viewpoint, which provides an aerial view of the park.

Every inch of this beauty is Instagram worthy, and we know you’ll love it as much as we do.

Things to Do

  • Enjoy magnificent views of the park from the Lion Hill, Baboon Cliff and Out of Africa viewpoints.
  • Indulge in some rewarding photography from the Enasoit, Honeymoon, and Lion Ridge hill
  • Game drives
  • Swimming at the Makalia falls

3. Mt. Longonot National Park

Few hikes are as rewarding or scenic as hikes up the Mt. Longonot National Park during your Kenya tour packages from Nairobi.

The hike begins in the early morning when the weather is right, and the ambience is quiet and cathartic.

The 2776m hike is no easy feat, especially for the unfit.

However, those who take up this challenge are in turn rewarded with unfathomable beauty; the thick forest, mountain crater and aerial views of Lake Naivasha.

Other noteworthy attractions include wildlife like hyenas, leopards, bushbucks, gazelles, zebras, buffaloes, giraffes, and elands.

What to Expect

  • A steep climb that can get slippery
  • A fine dusted terrain with scattered bits of loose gravel
  • Wildlife sightings are not guaranteed through the exceptional views more than compensate
  • The hike up and down the mountain takes not less than two hours

Pro tip: Bring comfortable hiking shoes, snacks, light clothing, and drinking water.

Things to Do

  • Rock climbing
  • Game viewing
  • Hiking
  • Biking

4. Giraffe Centre

Giraffe Centre offers raised feeding platforms, warthogs frolicking in the mud and a walk down the lush and scenic Gogo River Bird Sanctuary.

The giraffe centre has always been a Nairobi safari tour favourite.

A conservancy deeply rooted in wildlife conservation, the Giraffe Center provides a safe place for the Rothchild Giraffe to thrive.

Find joy in feeding, petting and kissing these lovelies, and fulfilment by adopting one or ten.

You can also purchase souvenirs from the conservancy’s gift shop or enjoy some fresh sceneries at the Gogo River Bird Sanctuary.

Pro Tip: Nairobi safari tours to the giraffe are best combined with a morning game drive at the Nairobi National Park.

5. Hell’s Gate National Park

Some of the attractions found at Hell’s Gate include soaring cliffs, stunning gorges, rock towers, scrubby volcanoes, and raging plumes of geothermal steam.

The park is stunning, to be modest, a fact that has seen it inspire movies as iconic as the Lion King and Tomb Raider.

Nairobi safari tours at Hell’s gate set you on a discovery path of some of the most awe-inspiring sceneries, and even better is wildlife that roams this terrain.

Take a walk around the quaint yet jaw-dropping scenery and marvel at the hartebeests, baboons, gazelles, buffaloes, elands, zebras, antelopes, and reedbucks.

Enjoy some biking, rock climbing, and walks.

Or go for a drive around the park and witness first-hand why the park is an undefeated Nairobi holidays destination.

Kenya Tour Packages from Nairobi - FAQ

Many UK travellers ask our team questions about Nairobi Safaris Tour Packages, and here are some of them.

1. What are the Best Places for Safaris in Nairobi?

Finding a safari destination rivalling Nairobi rustic yet contemporary vibes is next to impossible.

And indeed, the city is one of the most charming spots, and we dare say, in the world.

For the luxury side of things, head on to the Giraffe Manor, where the boutique hotel’s furnishings, ambience, and amenities drenches you in insurmountable luxury.

Stay for a day or two and enjoy feeding giraffes from your bedroom window or over breakfast.

Or head on to the nearby Giraffe Center for 2-3 hours of giraffe feeding, petting, and kissing.

For something aesthetically pleasing, we recommend the Nairobi National Park.

It is a park that marries modernity (has the city at its background) and natural wonders to create an effortless Nairobi safaris tour destination.

Discover its plentiful wildlife and the Nairobi Safari Walk, a by-foot exploration of the park’s pomp.

Love water bodies and spectacular sceneries? How about the Lake Nakuru National Park?

The park is only four hours away by car and is the most ecologically diverse there is in the region.

For a quiet time and some wildlife rarities, visit the Samburu National Park and the Mara for the Wildebeest Migration and sceneries.

2. How Much Does Safari from Nairobi Cost?

Many factors come into play when determining the Nairobi safari cost.

The following factors determine how high or low your Nairobi safari cost is;

  • Your accommodation of choice – is it luxury, mid-budget, or budget?
  • Your mode of travel – is it flight, safari land cruiser, or safari van?
