A colleague and I stayed at NTC for an evening back in April and anyone who is spending time in Nairobi should do the same! It's very easy to get there from downtown Nairobi (probably about 20 minutes or so) and NTC can arrange transportation to and from the camp. Although I brought a headlamp with me, it wasn't needed...

I had the complete pleasure of staying at NTC for one night with some business colleagues. We were met by the camp Manager Harry and a more helpful smiling good man I have yet to meet. Nothing was too much trouble. The camp is beautiful. The tents are incredibly well appointed with beds, showers and each has a toilet inside.... More

After a night flight from the UK this haven of calm is the perfect first night in Kenya for we three "mature "travellers. We are always revived by the amazing sightings as we drive through the park. And we really appreciate the lovely meals, the bucket shower, and comfortable beds. Clemence and team provide the perfect, calm, efficient hospitality and... More

It's just a short drive from the airport or anywhere else in the city. Once inside the park you're in a different world with the traffic, noise and dust left firmly outside the perimeter. The Nairobi Tented Camp is in a thickly wooded part of the park and wonderfully comfortable. The tents don't have any of the luxuries you don't... More

We have now visited all the Porini camps in Kenya. We found the same Porini service we have become to expect, and must compliment Clemence and her team for the wonderful time we spent over 2 nights. Andrew was a most considerate and intelligent guide and though we saw the large animals, it was the smaller things we came across,... More

From the very first moment we arrived we were amazed again and again. Not only by the spectacular camp and surroundings, but also the impeccable service and genuinely kind people! We would definitely come back as our stay was not long enough, and will be recommending to family and friends. Thank you!!

My family of 5 (incl 6 month old infant) stayed at NTC on 31st December. I live in Nairobi and we were looking for a place to go for New year's eve that was not too far to drive from Nairobi but away from the city noise and madness. This beautiful gem is very well hidden in plain view and... More

Stayed for 2 days (1 night) at the camp and it surpassed expectations in every way. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly, food was delicious, location spectacular and the game drives were spectacular. If you're having any doubts about booking, don't. Book it and you won't regret it!

A colleague and I recently spent two days at the Nairobi Tented Camp. It was a wonderful experience. The camp itself was very well set up. Staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and helpful. The food was terrific. The 4 wildlife drives we had afforded us an excellent picture of African wildlife, with expert commentary from our guide. While a... More
