Nairobi National Park
Join us in protecting the world's most unique urban wildlife habitat Welcome to 75 Years Nairobi National Park No Shadow.

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 also been a globally renown landmark for Kenya’s exemplary commitment to its unique wildlife heritage.

The Friends of Nairobi National Park (FoNNAp) is a non-profit membership society founded in 1995. We are at 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!
