Nairobi National Park is known to be the only Park in the city in the whole world. Being 15 minutes drive from either the Airport and the CBD. With an area coverage of 117KM2, it could not host cats like cheetahs and big herbivores such as elephants. This is because they need a big landmass in order for elephants to feed and cheetahs to mark their territorial areas.
Cheetahs are social animals and never harm human, but are one of the swift hunting cats in Africa. With an estimated 120km/hr speed, a cheetah is able to hunt any kind of its target. This makes cheetah love big plain savannahs in order to monitor their enemies/threats as well as help them hunt.
After the expansion of the Nairobi National Park with the Kapiti Plains , the Nairobi National Park now has an area coverage of more than 29,000 acres.
Guests at Nairobi National Park manage to spot a Cheetah Mother with 2 cubs and it was the highlight of their visit to the park. It being ages or even never host cheetahs, this was one incredible sighting that Vishal Shikotra had. He was among the first guests to come across such a cat in Nairobi National Park. The park is known to host other big cats such as lions, leopards, and others.
