Ngong House is a unique experience. It is a private homestay situated in the Karen/Langata area near the Ngong Hills, only a few minutes away from the house where Karen Blixen once had her coffee farm. Although you will be staying in 'treehouses' you will enjoy a very high degree of luxury. Four poster beds,crisp linen and exquisite, gourmet food are just the beginning. The main house and each treehouse have fully stocked bars.
The evenings start with sundowners on your verandah at tree level, from where you can watch the breathtaking sunsets over the Ngong Hills. Nature lovers can enjoy a large variety of birds feeding from the birdfeeder hanging in front of each treehouse. After sunset, before dinner, drinks will continue with the other guests around the camp fire under an acacia tree nearby the swimming pool.
Ngong House ideally situated to visit many of Nairobi's attractions such as Nairobi National Park, Karen Blixen Museum, and many craft centres. Nature walks are a must, especially to visit the Giraffe Centre (home of the endangered Rothchild Giraffe), a twenty minute walk from Ngong House.
"A lovely quirky tree house for our first night! It was set in fantastic grounds and the owner and his staff were extremely welcoming. We arrived late and the chefs had stayed up to cook us a fresh meal. Food was amazing and the setting lovely. Shame we were only there one night Breakfast was outside in the garden and the table had been decorated with fresh flowers from the garden. I would highly recommend!"
