Tours are available from various local guides and usually have pickups from most hotels in Nairobi.  Tours last 3-4 hours and take you through unpaved paths in the different animal habitats.

At almost every turn there are different species of animals – from lions, giraffes, rhinos, hippos, zebras, gazelles and tons of different birds. The only security between you and nature is the vehicle you’re in.

The vehicles are vans with a roof that raises. Passengers are able to stand easily to take pictures of the wildlife.
