Nairobi Safari Experience

Nairobi more than lives up to its name of ‘Safari Capital of the World’ with scores and scores of exotic safari options. The city will definitely satiate the ones bitten by the nature bug.  After all, it is an unthinkable but nonetheless welcome break to play one of those daredevil Discovery Channel hosts by coming across a pride of lions in the desert of wilderness after the monotonous routine of city life in London. This destination is the gateway to different wildlife reserves of Kenya.

Your once in a lifetime will more than make up for the cost of those air tickets to Nairobi. Start your itinerary with a visit to the Nairobi Safari Walk facility for unforgettable memories of the wild. This walk takes one through forest, savannah, and wetland landscapes. The wetland serves as the entrance and its terraced layout accommodates a bewildering array of flora life. As one moves to the ground floor level, a captivating sight of exotic fauna life greets the onlooker. Right from the relatively tamer varieties like antelopes, zebras, and wilbeests, one can come up close to cheetahs, leopards, lions, rhinos, and hyenas. Rigid standards of safety are maintained but the experience leaves nothing to the imagination as one gets to behold animals roaming in simulated but absolutely natural habitats.

Further ahead is a release boma serving as a rhino enclosure. As one proceeds to the tropical dry forest, a melody of sounds from a colourful variety of bird life treats the ear. Here, it is a good idea to spend serene idyllic moments on one of the benches. The walking route opens into a look out zone offering mesmerising views of a water hole in the Nairobi National Park. Here, the lucky ones can spy on every type of animal. A board walk at tree top level finally caps the walk. There is a leopard blind here and you can behold the animal without the constraint of a glass barrier. The entire 1.5 km stretch of walk safari spells sheer natural bliss.

Though every wildlife reserve is a jewel in the crown for Kenya, the most widely known ones are Nairobi National Park, Tsavo National Park, Samburu and Shaba National Parks, and Maasai Mara National Park. As you take a safari through these wonderful gifts of nature, it appears that you have entered an overpopulated thriving city. The only difference is that these are green cities, where towering trees replace skyscrapers and exotic animals, both tame and aggressive, replace human beings.  Watching these animals from the confines of your vehicle gives an unparalleled high.

To make the most of your cheap air tickets to Nairobi, try to stay in one of the theme accommodations. One place that immediately comes to mind is the The Giraffe Manor. In this 120 acre property, you can feed giraffes right from the dining table of your second floor room. A safari in Nairobi cannot be described. It has to be experienced to be felt.
