The animals are easy to spot and you should look out for the white and black rhinos in the park as they are the main item on your game driving experience.
The Lions will take some time to track but eventually you will find them.
Hippos can be seen at the river or in some of the numerous manmade earth dams in the park.
Cheetahs are mostly fond of staying in the large plains to the southernmost fringes of the park where plains game prey is plentiful and easy to catch.
Leave the park after an extensive tour at 10 am then head to David Sheldrick’s Elephant Orphanage, located on the edge of Nairobi National Park.
