Designed to have a low impact on the environment, Nairobi Tented Camp features only nine luxury tents, served by a central mess tent that houses the bar, dining and lounge facilities.

Elegantly furnished in a colonial-explorer fashion, the ambience at camp may make you feel as if you are in a Karen Blixen story. Large hammocks swing below shady trees, providing an ideal spot to relax after a 3-course lunch, while the attentive staff ensures your every need is catered for.

    Beauty or wellness therapist
    Wi-fi available


A freshly brewed hot drink is delivered to your tent in the morning before you set off on a game drive in search of the Nairobi National Park's varied wildlife. Following a mid-morning return to camp, a wholesome cooked breakfast awaits, consisting of freshly baked breads and a variety of hot dishes.

Later in the day, a mouthwatering light lunch is served alfresco in the dappled shade of an olive tree. After the excitement of your afternoon game drive, a welcoming fireside cocktail prepares you for a sumptuous a la carte dinner in the softly glowing lantern light, with the sounds of Africa all around you.


Elegantly furnished in a colonial style and available as a twin or double bed, the canvas tents are fitted with gauze windows to keep insects out but cooling breezes in. Solar power provides soft lighting and the chance to recharge batteries.

The en suite facilities have a charming safari-style bucket shower that the staff will fill with hot water by hand when needed. A comfortable set of canvas chairs on the tent's verandah allow you to soak in the magnificent view of the valley below.
