Nairobi Tented Camp

Nairobi & Central Kenya

Rating: Mid-range    

Nairobi Tented Camp overview

Nairobi Tented Camp is a genuine tented camp in the heart of Nairobi National Park. Just a short drive from both the international and domestic airports, this is a good first or last night destination on your Kenyan holiday. You'll be able to take game drives in the national park in the early morning and again in the late afternoon, times when wildlife viewing is at its best.
There are 8 tents with private bathrooms. Hot water is brought for the shower at your request. Cocooned in your tent you'll feel a world away from the busy city. The tent has plenty of storage for clothes and bags. The veranda looks out into the dense forest and offers a peaceful place to rest.
The central lounge and dining tent is where you'll meet other guests and enjoy freshly cooked meals. There are various board games and a selection of books to help you pass the time between game drives in the park. In the evening drinks are served around the campfire and you can share tales of the day's events with other guests while looking forward to a delicious candle-lit dinner accompanied by your choice of drink from the bar.

"Harry, the manager was superb. The tents were five star hotel accommodation in a tent! All the "boys" were great. The tent was so comfortable and mosquito-free and the food was delicious."
