We were met at the airport and taken to the main park gate where the 4x4 met us and took us to the camp. It is indeed a 'tented' camp with modern amenities/luxuries! Our room was very well laid out, bathroom was large and shower worked well (it is filled via bucket when you want it). We enjoyed sitting in... More

The safari camp was a great start to our trip. Only a short distance from the airport and really good service. The elephant orphanage is a must see! We were also lucky enough to have a rhino run across the road as we drove to the camp.

I was very pleased to find this tented camp open on this my second safari to Kenya. It was a perfect start to my wildlife adventures. It has all the great amenities, service, and excellent features of the Gamewatchers Porini Tented Camps and is a welcome initiation to the safari experience directly from the plane to the wilds.

We booked two nights as we had to stay over in Nairobi anyway. A safari camp in town sounded so weird that we had to try it. To our surprise it was a genuine safari experience. A full-blown bush camp within reach of the town and airport! And not just a bushcamp, a very good one at that. It started... More

A visit to NTC, the only accommodation within Nairobi National Park, I a great treat, the hospitality, attention to detail and service is great. Don't take the word camping to heart, NTC is about 'clamping' with all the comforts of home. Great game drives, amazing views and settling down to campfire in the evenings. stay in the wild within sites... More

I learned about the NTC on Trip Advisor. So glad I looked here for suggestions of things to do in Nairobi. I could find nothing wrong with the place and everything that I found exceeded any expectations. Not only is it a most beautiful setting (much better than any hotel setting imho), it is just as comfortable as any 5... More

my friend and i were pressed a bit for time and we didn't think we could do a multi-day safari -- the tented camp at nairobi national park was fantastic! we spent one night in the luxury tent, which was really beautiful, clean, and well-laid out. We were woken up at 5:30am the next day with hot coffee and cookies... More

My 9 year old daughter and I had a fantastic 3 nights as an introduction to our first African Safari. After an easy collection from the airport we entered the park at midnight and commenced our first night drive spotting mongoose, buffalo & giraffe before we even arrived in camp. After our 3 course dinner we slept well in our... More

My stay at the Nairobi Tented Camp was my first taste of an African safari experience - and what a high standard it has set! I chose the NTC as I had the weekend in Nairobi whilst travelling on business. From the pickup from my hotel to the drop off at the airport two days later I was so well... More
