NTC offers a wonderful alternative to a Nairobi hotel and plunges you straight away into the bush. The lovely camp is only 40 minutes from the airport and set in a forest area in a valley within the Nairobi NP. We stayed 2 nights, giving us a good chance to explore the park, which was surprisingly good for game. We...

I stayed here for a night on arrival in Nairobi before heading the Mara. It is the opportunity to stay in a safari camp rather than a city centre hotel - ideal if you are on a safari break. The camp is run by Gamewatchers and both tents and routine are similar to those of the Porini camps. Tents are...

Stayed here one night while visiting Nairobi National Park on a safari journey from Mombasa to Masai Mara. So good!!! You can not get any closer to nature than staying in this camp. Hidden on a sloped forest area, the 9 perfectly equipped tents offer a true safari camp experience! The staff (Frederik, Dominique, Peter, George and Simon) go all...

We were a group of 5 adults and 3 kids ( 2, 7 & 12 years old) we stayed at Nairobi Tented Camp only one night after doing safari in Amboseli and Tsavo East Park. The experience of sleeping in a tent in the middle of a natural park with wild animals and feeling safe and in good hands at...

The NTCamp just minutes from civilisation in Nairobi National Park is an oasis in the forest. Very comfortable, excellent food, lovely staff, and good value. It is the best way to enjoy the park particularly for tourists as you can make good use of your 24hour park fees.

Living in Nairobi, sometimes I need a get-away to remind myself I live in Kenya. Thankfully, Nairobi Tented Camp is less than one hour from my home. From the moment I checked in, I was well cared for by the manager, Fredrick and staff, Amos and David. My tent had a comfortable double bed with a flush toilet and bucket...

I spent my first safari day/night here. Edwin and Gordon were gracious to a solo traveler. My only regret was not staying longer. My main goal was to visit my foster elephant, and I wish I had been able to do more of a drive through the park. Don't miss the ivory burn site, which will just break your heart.

Stayed one night with a family group and was amazed how wild and remote the camp felt although close to the hustle and bustle of Langata and Nairobi. It is a proper safari camp hidden away in a thickly forested corner of Nairobi National Park. We enjoyed drinks round a camp fire, good dinner and breakfast, attentive staff, comfortable bed...
