Landscape

The main habitat of the Nairobi is the Grassland savannah.

The city's skyscrapers are visible above the open grassland and are disturbing from a wilderness perspective, although the skyline view is exceptional. To the west of the park is an upland with extensive forests and the park is criss-crossed by several valleys with seasonal water-bearing rivers. In the south of the park there is also a river with floodplain forests that carries water permanently.
