It is 250 kilometres / 155 miles away from Nairobi.
This is Masai country a proud nomadic people, who have lived in harmony with nature for centuries. Game viewing is an adventure in this park, with lion, elephant and buffalo almost an assured sight and hosts of antelope, zebra, and other small creatures of the wild. Bird life is abundant. The long-toed Lapwing the plover with the habits of a lily-trotter and the rarer Madagascar Squacco Heron may be seen at frequent intervals.
