I stayed here for 1 day and night. Great place and still quiet though though the city is not that far away. We saw rhinos as well as antelope, giraffes and buffalo. Recommend you stay here before you head to the bush like I did because you get a good rest if you have flown in from far away. Great...

This camp was absolutely gorgeous. The staff was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the animals, history of Kenya and conservation. I learned so much staying here. The food was delicious. It was such a rewarding experience to sleep inside Nairobi National Park and hear lions roaring at night! I highly recommend this camp. I got to see lions, rhinos, serval...

A night at the Nairobi National Park was a great way to start our Kenyan safari. We were met at our hotel by a Gamewatchers Safaris representative and taken to meet our guide Andrew. Andrew was very friendly and extremely knowledgable. We got to see two male lions after a kill, black and white rhinos, giraffe and many more species...

What an amazing opportunity for anyone travelling to Nairobi. I would definitely recommend that if you are in Nairobi on business, add an extra day or 2 to experience this accommodation and park. It is unique, relaxing, comfortable and such a contrast to the city. We stayed here for 1 night prior to starting a safari with Gamewatchers Porini Camps....

I knew I was going to do a safari in the park but couldn't decide whether to spend the extra money staying overnight at the tented camp - so so so glad I did! It was a really incredible experience staying in the middle of the park with wildlife roaming around outside, but in truly beautiful, comfy, warm accommodation -...

Fell asleep to the sound of lions roaring. Great staff in a unique setting. Very intimate and relaxing surroundings. Great food and open air bar. Camping Africa style with all the amenities of a hotel including wifi. Add on a game drive to see lions, giraffe and rhino.

I needed to stay overnight in Nairobi before continuing on a connecting flight. I almost stayed at an "airport" hotel. So grateful I did not! The Nairobi Tented Camp was an exceptional experience. They offered airport shuttle service and the ride - from the entrance (of the Nairobi National Park) near the airport to the Camp on the other side...

I had one afternoon followed by a free day before an 11 p.m. flight out of Nairobi. The Nairobi Tented Camp was recommended as a great way to have a safari experience, but remain close to the city and airport on a tight schedule. Although this is a campsite, you are treated to a spacious and extremely comfortable room. They...

Nairobi, the capital of Kenya , has a unique gem on its doorsteps - the Nairobi National Park. And the NNP has its own unique gem - the Nairobi Tented Camp. Spacious comfortable tents; very good food and the typical friendly and efficient service that one encounters in Kenya. All at very reasonable rates. Why stay in a city hotel...
