This is an adventure-filled afternoon in Nairobi National Park which combines spectacular scenery, a wildlife game drive, and a bush dinning experience. The tour offers guests a wild urban dining experience – a classic way to introduce guests to Africa by offering a bush banquet in Nairobi National Park.
A short drive out of Nairobi’s central business district is the Nairobi National Park. Spend the afternoon on a game drive in the park home to an abundance of wildlife such as rhinos, lions, leopards, cheetahs, Masai giraffes, baboons, warthogs, bat-eared foxes, grey jackals, spotted hyenas, hartebeests, wildebeest, buffaloes, zebras and hippos and a diverse birdlife with over 400 species recorded.
Later before sunset, stop for sundowners in the unspoiled African bush followed by a bush dining experience under the stars. The bush dinner is typically presented with tables, safari chairs, a ‘bush bar’, and a ‘bush kitchen,’ where a broad range of meats, poultry, fish, and vegetables are cooked on-site (supplemented by fresh soups, salads, and desserts).
Kindly note that we cater to any special dietary requirements our guests may have. Nairobi City is usually visible from our dining location. After dinner, we transfer you back to your hotel/residence bringing the Nairobi National Park Game Drive & Bush Dinner Tour to a close.

Pick of the picnic sites
Minutes from the city centre, easily accessed, and offering a well-maintained and clearly signposted road network, the Park makes an ideal day trip wildlife safari venue and abounds in specially created picnic spots. These include:
Impala Observation Point and picnic site (Junction 23B)
High on a hill minutes from the main gate, this site offers a stone-built rondavel with panoramic views and a picnic area (with shaded picnic benches and latrines). It is also an excellent spot from which to scan the park for safari wildlife.
The Ivory Burning Site (Junction 1A)
Immediately inside the main gate, this area marks the spot where, in 1989, former president, Daniel Arap Moi, set fire to 12 tons of stockpiled ivory then worth over USD$ 1 million in a bid to eliminate the mass slaughter of Africa’s elephants. An important icon of wildlife protection, this popular picnic offers a broad area of open grass, picnic tables, shade, and latrines.
Kingfisher Picnic Site (Junction 27C )
A cool, green-shaded area with picnic tables, this is an ideal site for early morning bush breakfasts, lunchtime relaxation, or evening sundowners.
Mokoyeti Picnic Site (Junction 14B)
An open cliff-top site with thatch-roof shaded picnic tables, latrines, and extensive parking, this is an ideal site for family picnics at any time of the day.
Leopard Cliff Observation Point (junction 15)
A simple clearing reached by a minor diversion from the main road that leads through the Park to Cheetah Gate, this observation point offers fine panoramas of African wildlife as well as a small lookout with vistas into the rocky gorge below. Note: there are no picnic benches, shaded areas, or latrines at this site.
The Hippo Pools and Nature Trail (Junction 12)
In the east of the Park, amid the meandering coils of the Athi river, lie the hippo pools, an important site for wildlife conservation. Here groups of hippo wallow in the river, emerging to graze the riverbanks at night.
Terrapin and Nile crocodiles bask on the exposed mud banks and the surrounding woodland features vervet monkey and Defassa waterbuck. Immediately adjacent to the hippo pools is a spacious shaded picnic area with running water, latrines, and a shaded rondavel picnic site.
Shaded benches also punctuate the short self-guided nature trail, which is permanently patrolled by KWS rangers and leads out of the picnic area to follow a 1km (20 minute) circuit along the river. Note visitors must vacate the hippo pool area by 5.15 pm.
Nairobi Safari Walk
The Safari Walk (immediately to the right of the main gate) offers the rare chance of viewing captive animals behaving as they would in their natural habitat. Traversed by panoramic raised timbered boardwalks this unique wildlife park also makes for an informative walk and an enjoyable family outing. Open: Daily 8.00 am to 6.00 pm including public holidays.
Note: the Safari Walk stands outside the main gates of the National Park and entry is payable by separate fees (cash in the form of Kshs or US Dollars is acceptable and SmartCards are not required).
