Nairobi Tented Camp
Ranked #1 of 289 Nairobi B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 September 2017

What a way to start our first night on Safari. Nairobil Tented Camp was everything we imagined and more. Met with hot towels and fresh glass of juice upon arrival. Warm welcome by Fredick and the Masaii Daniel. Our tent was very comfortable. The hot water bottles placed in the bed while we were at dinner was a delightful surprise. We were the only guests at the camp for that night, but they still made us a campfire and cooked us a wonderful meal. We were treated like royalty. Daniel brought us hot coffee and tea to our tent the next morning before breakfast. And the lions roared for us at night! Absolutely would stay here again and highly recommend it.

We loved our stay at NTC. The service at camp from Fredrick and Moses was great, and our game driver Gordon led us on amazing viewing adventures and was full of stories and knowledge of the terrain. And you have to try a safari shower.:-) We will definitely be planning another stay at this camp, as it has comfortable accommodations while retaining an outdoorsy atmosphere.

what a wonderful place to spend our last night in Kenya. So quiet and peaceful at night and really enjoyed sitting around the campfire. Excellent morning game drive with Gordon (driver). Saw lots of game and visiting the ivory burning monument. Whether beginning your safari vacation or at it's conclusion, the NTC is the perfect place for a night or two. Enjoyed meeting Fred (the warthog) as well! Thank you.

We spent 2 days/ 1 night in Nairobi national park with Gamewatchers: including evening and morning safaris and Elephant orphenage visit. That was our first time in Africa and a longtime dream. For me and my wife it was so far our best holidays, really: the personnal on the camp is amazing, the food is succulent, the room was perfect, the sundowner next to the bonfire was memorable... Nothing bad to say, we enjoyed every single thing in the camp.
We received the visit of Fred the warthog and played with him, monkeys are jumping around in trees, birds are everywhere, dickdicks are walking next to us.
I was expecting something very good, but we received more than that.

Thank you to all of you for this time!

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.
