overview

This charming tented camp is truly one of a kind. Set in Nairobi National Park - a genuine big game reserve on the outskirts of the city - Nairobi Tented Camp is tucked away in a beautiful riverine forest just 30 minutes from the international airport. It might not be an untamed wilderness but this is an authentic safari camp experience and a great introduction to a Kenyan safari.

The perfect one or two-night stopover before or after your Kenya safari, Nairobi Tented Camp offers game drives and guided walks as well as opportunities to take in the city's highlights such as the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, Giraffe Centre and Karen Blixen Museum.

Facilities

Designed to have a low impact on the environment, Nairobi Tented Camp features only eight 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 three course lunch, while the attentive staff ensures your every need is catered for.

Dining

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.

Tent

The eight spacious luxury tents at Nairobi Tented Camp are placed well apart to ensure privacy. 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.
