Taking a walking adventure in Nairobi Safari Walk is an exciting activity. It’s a wonderful way to experience African wildlife and nature on foot. It gives you an opportunity to establish a relationship with nature and wildlife and even share their paths and space.
The Ngong Hills is about 22km southwest of the city, making it an immensely popular weekend destination for visitors. The hike up Ngong Hills starts from Ngong town at the northern foot of the hills 1961m above sea level and traverses the full range to the southern end at Kona Baridi. This takes about 4 to 5 hours to complete, depending on fitness levels.
Nairobi Mamba Village is a sanctuary for crocodiles located 12 km south of Nairobi City. The farm also houses Ostrich and is a popular destination for tourists and students. The best time to visit is during crocodile feeding time. You will be thrilled at how high giant crocs can jump to grab thrown pieces of meat oblivious of the other gaping giant crocodiles.
The park is located only 7 km from Nairobi city center. Major wildlife attractions are the Black rhino, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, buffaloes, Giraffe, zebra, wildebeest, elands, and a diverse birdlife with over 400 species recorded.
It’s an awesome place to spend your weekends and houses other attractions including the Ivory burning site Monument, Nairobi Safari Walk, the Orphanage, and the walking trails at hippo pools.
Whistling Thorns is one hour from Nairobi overlooking the Ngong Hills in an untouristy part of the country. It is a peaceful quiet place with a swimming pool and splendid views and a bar/restaurant with home-cooked meals.
There is a golf driving range, and you can go horse riding or walk. There are plenty of birds and you may see zebras and gazelles. It is a lovely place to relax before or after your safari.
Did you know that the activity is called go-karting and not go-karting? But the name has stuck in people’s minds until it is now permanently known as gp- skating. Gp-karting is an adrenaline-filled activity whereby you get to drive an open-wheel car or quadricycle on a racing track/circuit.
The oldest and most affordable one is found in Langata. You can also go for gp skating in Athi River and Two Rivers mall.
The sport does not need you to have prior driving skills. It is better if you don’t know how to drive so that you can’t try to transfer your driving skills into gp-karting. The activity has quickly gained its pace and is now one of the best activities to do in Nairobi.
