Nairobi National Park is one of the world’s
most spectacular wildlife sanctuaries
Join us in keeping it alive!
With its 117 km² of Savanna Forest and wetlands bordering Kenya’s capital, Nairobi National Park harbors an abundance of wildlife as well as many species close to extinction. While the park represents an invaluable environmental and economic asset to the city it has always also been a globally renown landmark for Kenya’s exemplary commitment to its unique wildlife heritage.
The Friends of Nairobi National Park (FoNNAp) are a non-profit membership society founded in 1995. We are in the forefront of supporting the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS) in protecting Nairobi National Park and its biodiversity from the growing pressure of Kenya’s swiftly expanding city.
Help us keep this unique natural heritage alive!
WHAT WE DO?
Projects & Activities
FoNNaP carries out a wide range of activities geared at assessing and protecting the biodiversity of Nairobi National Park and its surrounding ecosystems.
As Friend’s of the Park we see ourselves as a key link between the park’s protection and the public. Public relations and awareness, i.e. involving and informing the public on the park’s essential role for Nairobi’s future as a global metropolis and economic powerhouse is an indispensable aspect of our activities. Our Projects cover the following main conservation pillars:

As we mark 75 years since Nairobi National Park was gazetted to a National Park, the actual date coincides with Conservation Heroes Day on 16th Dec, the board is calling on volunteers to sit in a planning committee, together with KWS representatives to work on a plan for the commemoration since the plan is to have activities for the promotion of the park leading to the actual day.
