Tigers are one creature with is never seen in Nairobi National Park.
However, yesterday, the Tigers of Hull City were enjoying the breathtaking wildlife and scenery of the park after their penalty shootout victory over Kenyan champions Gor Mahia at the Kasarani Stadium on Sunday.
Manager Nigel Adkins and his squad were clearly in awe of the amazing views from the only national park in the world which borders a capital city.
Established in 1946, the Nairobi National Park was Kenya’s first and is located around 4 miles from the centre of Nairobi with electric fencing around its northern, eastern and western boundaries. Covering an area of 28,963 acres, it is small in comparison to most of Africa’s national parks.
The park has a large and diverse wildlife population including Cape buffaloes, baboons, eastern black rhinos, gazelles, zebras, Tanzanian cheetahs, Coke’s hartebeest, hippopotami, leopards, East African lions, elands, impala, Masai giraffes, ostriches, vultures and waterbucks.
This end-of-season trip is part of City’s sponsorship deal with Kenyan betting firm SportPesa.
