Nairobi National Park

Park is really a wonderful place to visit because it is established to attract the visitors to come from locally and internationally which can increase the income in the tourism sector. National Park is the conservation park  of the country to preserve different kinds of plants, trees, animals, especially the nearly distinct species. In some parks, they conserve only plants and trees and organize beautiful gardens inside to take the visitors’ interest on sighting flowers and trees. On the other hand, in Nairobi National Park in Kenya, the government conserve only the animals, particularly giraffe that is the tallest animal and beautiful and amazing look. It is also one of the famous national park in conserving the rare and funny animals in Africa.

The park has a large and diverse wildlife population.Species found in the park include African buffalo, baboon, Eastern black rhinoceros, Grant’s zebra, Tanzanian cheetah, Coke’s hartebeest, Grant’s gazelle, hippopotamus, African leopard, Masai lion,Thomson’s gazelle, eland, impala, Masai giraffe, ostrich, vulture, Jackal, Warthog, Kongonies, Maribu Stalks and waterbuck.

Herbivores, including wildebeest and zebra, use the Kitengela conservation area and migration corridor to the south of the park to reach the Athi-Kapiti plains. They disperse over the plains in the wet season and return to the park in the dry season.The concentration of wildlife in the park is greatest in the dry season, when areas outside the park have dried up. Small dams built along the Mbagathi River give the park more water resources than these outside areas. They attract water dependent herbivores during the dry season. The park is the northern limit for wildlife migrations in the dry season.The park has a high diversity of bird species,with up to 500 permanent and migratory species in the park. Dams have created a man-made habitat for birds and aquatic species.

Nairobi National Park is a national park in Kenya. Established in 1946, the national park was Kenya’s first. It is located approximately 7 kilometres (4 mi) south of the centre of Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city, with an electric fence separating the park’s wildlife from the metropolis. Nairobi’s skyscrapers can be seen from the park. The proximity of urban and natural environments has caused conflicts between the animals and local people and threatens animals’ migration routes.
