We learnt about the existence of this place very recently and tested it week before last. We did not expect much but were very pleasantly surprised! It really is in the middle of a bush and at night time you won't even make out whether you are in Mara or Nairobi. The tent is basic but the beds beautifully warmed... More

After spending 24 hours in planes and airports it was nice to start my safari within 1 hour of landing in Nairobi. The staff are extremely friendly and informative. The tents are very luxurious with comfortable beds, much better than some of the hotels I have been in. Saw lots of wildlife on the game drive, including white rhino which... More

Excellent guiding from Andrew, who helped us find some beautiful birds in addition a to a wide variety of bigger game. We saw tree-climbing lions and... More

After just serving on a mission trip in rural Kenya with primitive "facilities" all of our stay - this tent camp was nothing short of luxurious! We felt pampered and spoiled the entire time we were at Nairobi Tented Camp. The staff was so courteous and met our every need. I loved our time there - loved the amazing safari... More

Our stay here was exceptional. The camp is located within the National Park, though surrounded by the city of Nairobi on its skyline. Our tent was twice as big as our hotel room in Paris. We had a flush toilet, a bush shower with warm water, provided at times of our choice, two game drives a day or one drive... More

After an amazing first time Safari covering the Ngorongoro Conversation Area and the Serengeti National Park we returned to Nairobi and decided to stay at Nairobi Tented Camp rather than a Nairobi Hotel. The 'wow' factor commenced. A short 30 minute drive from Nairobi International Airport you will find this small tented camp located in the Nairobi National Park. The... More

A very charming, comfortable, well-maintained luxury tented camp so close to Nairobi City!! The hospitality was great and food was wonderful. A great place to relax and enjoy after a game drive of the Nairobi National Park. Offers alot to learn with regards to conservation and ecotourism...A perfect Weekend Getaway!!

Wow. I'm not usually one to dip my pen into this kind of ink, in fact, I've only written maybe one other review on Trip Advisor… but the world deserves to know about this incredible place! NTC was absolutely fabulous. It is a bit shocking at first that it is in the middle of Nairobi National Park, but I never... More

A group of 7 of us spent a night at Nairobi Tented Camp in May 2014. Harry, the manager, and his staff were friendly and very helpful. The camp consists of well appointed tents. The bedroom tents are large and beds very comfortable. Showers come from an overhead 'bucket' shower which is filled as required and is very adequate for... More

We took our two children (3 and 5) to the camp for two nights during a 2 week break in Kenya. We wanted to do a safari without having to drag the kids out to the Masai Mara. It's hidden in the Forest within the park and you feel a million miles from everything. It's small, intimate and unbelievably relaxing.... More
