3. Rhinos

These are by far the most interesting animals to watch in your short 4, 5 hours layover trip from NBO JKIA airport. The white rhinos are bigger than the black rhinos and they are the more docile ones. You will meet a family of 3 or 5 right next to the road and they keep on feeding as if you never existed. It’s interesting to watch mother rhinos with their calves as they feed and the baby floricks around the mother’s feet. The black rhinos are another story all together. They usually occupy the dry highland forest as they are browser as opposed to the grazing cousins of theirs. Black rhinos are shy and extremely volatile. They attack anything they don’t like or flee at the very moment they notice your presence which makes them hard to take pictures of.

4. Admire the Giraffes
