Nothing to say except: stay here! Preferably go straight after landing at Nairobi airport and immediately immerse yourself in the wonders of Africa's only capital-city-national-park, while enjoying the charms and luxuries of a proper tented camp in the middle of the wilderness! Excellent game drives and walks.

It is a very nice place to run away to when the hustle and bustle of the city get too much !! Accommodation is great - Tents are comfortable ( although the single beds are slightly short for tall people ! ) Food is excellent. Sitting round the fire at night listening to the sounds of the bush is magic... More

We had two nights here and would have loved to stay a little longer. The "tents" were very clean and comfortable, great beds and I heard a lion roar the first night. The food was excellent and would give many of our restaurants a run for their money.The staff very attentive and friendly. I cannot fault this place. We also... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of a 4 week African Holiday. We were not expecting much from the Camp nor indeed from the Nairobi National Park. How wrong we were. This was a remarkable oasis away from the bustle of Nairobi but yet only 30 minutes from the airport. From the moment we arrived we knew... More

Staying at NTC was initially just a good alternative to staying in the hustle & bustle of Nairobi - but turned out to be a privilege and delight to be there. After checking other reviews since coming home we can pretty much agree with everyones positive comments. Kevin, Francis & Kim & the masai staff instantly became our new best... More

This was the perfect getaway from the Nairobi daily life I was picked at the gate by kevin - one of the NTC game/tour driver. He was such a great source of information during all game drives. The Camp Manager - Kim together with the attendant Francis welcomed me with a drink & i felt right at home. The tents... More

I was on a business trip in Nairobi for two weeks and wanted to get out of the city for the weekend. The NTC, 30 minutes drive away from the city centre, turned out to be a great refuge from the traffic, pollution, noise and congestion in Nairobi. The friendly manager and staff looked after me in every way during... More

I had the privilege of staying at Nairobi Tented Camps for two nights in March. Kim, the camp manager, runs the camp with a great deal of energy and enthusiasm and she and her team have managed to create a warm, relaxing and peaceful atmosphere in this sanctuary so close to the city. The camp itself is most impressive as... More

We stayed at the Nairobi Tented Camp at the begining of our Safari. To start so soon after flying into Nairobi amazing. On our way to the Camp we saw Giraffes, Gazelles, Ostrich and Warthogs with the city skyline in the background fantastic. Kim the Manager is a delight and her staff very efficient nothing is too much trouble. We... More

For a romantic weekend away from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi - a better location could not be found. It literally took us 10 minutes drive from the airport to the East Gate of Nairobi National Park, and an incredible 20minutes or so of game-viewing driving to the tented camp from there. Being met by the friendly Masai, receiving... More
