Overview of Nairobi Tented Camp

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. This is an authentic safari camp experience and a great introduction to a Kenyan safari. It’s also the perfect place to see over 400 migratory and endemic bird species, as well as over 100 mammal species, including rhino (a very rare sighting in the Mara), buffalo, giraffe, lion, leopard, baboon, zebra, wildebeest and cheetah.

The perfect one- or 2-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.

      I originally wadn’t expecting much from Nairobi National Park, but we’ve had a very lovely moment thanks to Allan. Mother lion calling her cubs, Cubs hanging around having fun! Unfortunately, due to the long flight, I wasn’t feeling well the first night, but all the staff members at Nairobi Tented Camp did everything they could to make me feel better.
