When it looked like I would have to spend quite a bit of time at Nairobi airport waiting for a flight I searched for some ideas and came across Nairobi Tented Camp - this was the best thing I did, I spent one night away from the hustle and bustle of the city but not that far away from the... More

We have imagined watching animal migration in Kenya would involve quite some risks: Six vaccinations and anti-malaria pills ahead; some wild animals like lions are outrageously dangerous … Many thanks to Gamewatchers Safaris, our first ever safari holiday has turned out to be a very rewarding life experience. Also thanks to TripAdvisor and the many reviewers for sharing their experience... More

We recently stayed at the Nairobi Tented Camp for five days. During this time we were most impressed with the Camp, the staff who to a person were polite, well versed in the service requirements needed in a camp. Our tent was most comfortable, hot showers readily available and hot water bottles in bed most welcome as it was very... More

Lovely tents, very comfortable and clean, with a charming ensuite shower with proper flushing loo. All very nicely done. Always someone on hand to walk you from your tent to the main reception, or from the restaurant to the toilets, you only have to step out into the dark, and a torch beam lights your way. My daughters were delighted... More

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

What an amazing place to spend to a night in Nairobi before heading out to camps! The setting is lovely, the tents are comfortable, the food is great and you get game drives too! 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
