Nairobi Tented Camp
Ranked #1 of 289 Nairobi B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 July 2017

This is a great place to spend a night before going on safari. The tents are spacious and the game drives amazing considering this park is on Nairobi city edge. The dinner was excellent but lunch average with tough small chops. If we had not been to other Porini camps we would probably rate this 5 stars.

Room Tip: All tents the same

I couldn't fault it in any way - the staff were wonderful, food delicious, ambience lovely and tranquil. Just wonderful. My children also had a fantastic time, especially climbing trees around the camp!

Attentive, excellent staff; accommodations and food superb. Loved seeing animals from my tent porch and meeting Fred the warthog, a camp pet who looks for biscuits and scratches. This experience really gave me some chills at first with the noises in the night -- but it was a safe and secure adventure. The game drives with Gordon were terrific and informative, enabling us to explore at my pace, e.g., following a herd of zebra. plus the Sheldrake elephant orphanage is close! This was after a 5-day safari but offered a more luxurious and personalized experience. Great alternative to staying in Nairobi town

It's taken me a while to write this review, but wanted to thank Fredric, Amos, Moses, Gordon, and all the rest for a wonderful stay after I had to have emergency surgery due to a fall in the Masai Mara. Everyone was so attentive and helpful. The food was superb and even a rhino joined us for lunch the first day there! The tents and beds were mighty comfortable and the animals abound, some can even be seen from the tent. My original plans had been to spend my birthday here, (ten days earlier) but was in the hospital instead, so imagine my surprise when the staff came in singing and carrying a beautiful and delicious birthday/recover soon cake! Stay at least three nights, but if you can only have a short visit, you can go there for lunch. You won't regret it! A big thanks to everyone for everything!
