Ngong house was a rare experience. Spent a day at the place and was quite impressed with the tree houses and lunch on the grounds. They have very friendly dogs (I'm a dog lover). The food was nice but the ambiance of the place has to be its best feature. The only rude shock was when we went to pay...

This is individualized and professional services at its best. This place caters to your every need. There is a chef on staff that will wait for your arrival from the airport. It is a wonderful place to get a little out of the city. Comfortable all around, wonderful hosts, amazing food if any of my friends were visiting Nairobi, I...

We stayed again with visitors after a day in Nairobi National Park and we were not disappointed. Great staff, good food, beautiful surroundings and a really unique experience staying in a treehouse. Highly recommended!

I was going to give this establishment a better review based on its price point of $200 per night as quoted. Only at checkout when we received the bill did it transpire to be $200 PER PERSON per night! Is the Ngong House worth this money? Absolutely not! For $200 per night I would say the food is nice, the...

We spent three nights here and it was magical. We were greeted with dinner by the fire when we arrived, even though it was after 11:00 pm! The treehouse was ingenious and beautiful--we saw others more recently built that were even more creative. Everything very comfortable. (Would have been nice to have in-room tea-making capabilities; even though they are happy...

We came back to Ngong as we had an excellent stay during our previous safari. We were not disappointed with our second stay, the magic is still there! Not so far away, out of the city, you unplug right away. Warm beds at night, you feel like a child again in the tree house and let yourself start dreaming! Excellent...

My last day before the departure from Africa was in Ngong House.The rooms are incredibly perfect and the dinner was really romantic and the staff very very professional. Probably the best lodge in Nairobi.

When you plan a safari you are often faces with the choice of a hotel in the city for the first or the last night. We had to do the same when we visited Kenya.. but we hate big hotels.. especially in Africa, you want that "Safari" feel from day 1 and with Ngong House with hit the nail on...

This was our first destination in Nairobi on 5th July 2015. When we entered the Gate, we didn't know where we were heading. But when we stepped inside, found out to be a great boutique place.
