    Thank you for making this “site” I was often in Nairobi park,loving the many things it has to offer so near to town. I remember two baby cheetahs on the bonnet of our painted mini…sadly they were shot.What about the “plans” of building a motorway through the park? I PRAY that has been scrapped! Louise
