Nairobi National Park was established in 1946 as the first national park within Kenya. The park functions with an electric fence that separates its wildlife from the metropolis. Being located in Nairobi, it is possible to see skyscrapers from the park. Among the species found within the park include baboon, lion, leopard, hippopotamus, ostrich, vulture, and waterbuck, among others. The Karen Blixen Museum was the former home of Danish author Karen Blixen.

How to get around within Kenya

Options for getting around Kenya include, bus, matatu, and train, to name a few.  The country has a network of long-distance bus lines. The local buses in town are run by private companies, divided into green and yellow Citi Hoppa, purplish Double M, blue-grey Metro Bus, and green Mwi Sacco. These local buses seat around 20 to 25 passengers, and all have affordable fares. Matutu, or minibuses, are privately operated and can seat 14 up to 33 passengers. The matutus can be a bit risky to take, since most of the vehicles are very badly driven, with drivers often swerving, and are also poorly maintained. The matutus have set routes, although it is possible to find one outside of major towns for charter to function as a taxi towards your destination. Another option for travelling includes the train. The Kenya-Uganda railway begins within Mombasa, then moves on to Nairobi and Kampala in Uganda.
