NTC is a wonderful camp and I would recommend to anyone traveling to the area. The accommodations were incredibly comfortable and clean, the meals were great, the gamedrives were excellent – I was so impressed with the knowledge that Andrew has of animals and his attention to this work, what to look for to find certain animals, etc. The entire...

What a lovely surprise to find this comfy, friendly camp so close to the craziness of Nairobi. It is the only camp within the park, so we felt very privileged to be part of such an exclusive group. The staff was very friendly, helpful and considerate. The food was great, lots of fresh fruits and veggies. The tents themselves were... More

My colleague and I had a wonderful time at Nairobi Tented Camp during our stay in March--it was the perfect respite from our busy schedule. From the delicious meals, to the excellent service, the comfy beds, and the amazing game drives—we were so glad we took the time during our business trip to spend two days at your camp in... More

It's so hard to imagine being on safari 15 minutes after you clear customs, but that's exactly what we did on our latest trip to Kenya. Our flights were messed up so we lost a night in the camp, but the time we spent was still amazing. We had arranged two visits to Sheldrick to visit our dear ellie fosters... More

Nairobi Tented camp(NTC for short) in the Nairobi National Park is the perfect place to relax and de - stress after my usually very hectic business schedule in Nairobi and not to mention endless hours spent in traffic jams !!. Look Nairobi National Park is not the most highly populated Game Park in East Africa but it has an interesting... More

I never thought tented camp would be so much fun and convenient. They'll provide you with enough resources, like water and electricity. I was staying at tent 9 (the farthest tent they have) and a buffalo was calmly eating and resting next to my tent (what an experience!!!). They have a great room with bathroom, and the staffs were really... More

The Nairobi Tented Camp, hidden away in a little forest deep inside the Nairobi National Park, must be one of the capital's best kept secrets. As the only accommodation facility inside the park this place deserves to be full every night. Whether on safari or on business, either way can one stay at the camp for the arrival night or... More

Spare two days and one night at the end of a Nairobi business trip, and I am happy I spent them here. Lovely service, mess tent, lounge tent, good quality sleeping tents with proper beds, and a hot-water bottle to take the chill from the sheets (end of rainy season when I visited). Saw plenty of animals on the drives.... More

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...
