Nairobi Tented Camp

Discover Nairobi Tented Camp

Just minutes from Jomo Kenyetta Airport, Wilson Airport and Nairobi City, deep within a riverine forest, is Nairobi Tented Camp, a true wilderness experience. Within 30 minutes of arriving into Kenya you can get 'straight under canvas' in this authentic tented camp in the heart of Nairobi National Park.

The first accommodation of any sort to be allowed in this unique safari destination, the camp is unlike anywhere else in the world with sweeping plains on one side and Nairobi city on the other. Nairobi National Park is a wildlife haven with near guaranteed sightings of rhino, a reason in itself to visit. Nairobi Tented Camp comprises 8 guest tents, a dining tent and a lounge tent. Each tent has its own toilet and shower, so you can enjoy the luxury of en-suite living 'safaris style', with hot water heated over a log fire and bought to your shower when you're ready. Rechargeable batteries and solar panels provide lighting as well as candles and lanterns which provide for a truly authentic camp experience. Meals are all served outdoors on a set menu basis.
