Nairobi National Park Sunset & Night Game Drive
Nairobi Night Game Drive Safari offers you an opportunity to explore Nairobi National Park on a thrilling night game drive. Our Nairobi Night Game Drive Safari is a must for travelers looking for a unique Big 4 (lion, leopard, Cape buffalo, and rhinoceros) exclusive safari experience, where you get a more secluded bush experience that brings you closer to nature. The sunset & night safari game drive trip starts in Nairobi at 1800 hours where you will be collected from your hotel and transferred to Nairobi National park. Once it is dark our exploration begins using spotlights to find the nocturnal wildlife such as civets, bushbabies, bats, hares, genets, wild cats, and porcupines.
Easily seen animals include zebra, wildebeest, giraffes, jackals, hyenas, lions, rhinos, and buffalo. In the park, you travel on dirt roads encountering far fewer vehicles on your game drive. Some of the more elusive wild animals found in this park include leopards, cheetahs, bat-eared foxes, badgers, Aadvarks as well as caracal and serval cats. A variety of antelope species, such as dik-dik, Coke’s hartebeest, Impala, and eland can be spotted on the night game drive.
The four-hour night game drive is conducted in a safari mini-van with a pop-up hatch roof for game viewing & photography opportunities. You will get back to your residence at about 2300 hours, where you will be dropped off bringing this fantastic Nairobi night Safari to an end.
Nairobi Night Game Drive Safari is a more exciting way to spend a couple of hours in Nairobi National Park. The Park is completely different in the dark. The big cats come out to hunt and you will see animals you won’t see during the day.
It’s a completely different world. Lions sleep all day and hunt in the evening, most of the cats are active just before and after sunset and this is when we take our guests on night game drives.
With a spotter and a light we look and listen for the animals, it’s an amazing experience. Animal behavior is quite different at night so observing the animals in the dark is a big part of any of our night safaris.
Our Nairobi Night Game Drive in Nairobi National Park is conducted by experienced driver-guides in our safari cruisers or land cruisers that are fitted with powerful lights for proper sightseeing at night.
The powerful game spotting spotlights, a game spotter or game ranger in the vehicle helps you to see animals such as hippo, porcupines, civet cats, white-tailed mongoose, aardvarks, cape hares, rhino, leopard, lion, giraffe, topi, wildebeest, zebra, eland, hartebeest, night owls, hare, dik-dik among many others.
Nairobi Night Game Drive departs daily at 1900 Hours to 2200 Hours when you return to your hotel for dinner or 2100 Hours to 0000 Hours after you have enjoyed dinner at your hotel. We are more than happy to extend the night drive in case a guest wishes to stay out longer.
