We stayed at Ngong House for the first 2 nights of our holiday in Kenya. You feel you are already in the bush. Beautiful gardens and very interesting houses. The food was wonderful and every thing was done to make our stay very unique.

The staff were incredible, the setting was breathtaking, and the food was iresitible. I found the location to be convenient and wish I had the opportunity to write my auto-biography. The only critique I have of the place is that the owner came up to me and my local nairobi friends (all paying customers) and stated to us that they... More

I must say that this is by far the most serene space I have had the pleasure of staying in without actually living the city. Set in the plush suburbs of Karen the Treehouses are an amazing getaway! I was here for work though, but I plan to return with my family and enjoy some quiet time and with an... More

Hard to believe this paradise is minutes from Nairobi! We lived in Kenya for 2 months volunteering and traveling and ended our stay here. What a way to end our trip! There was room for our 3 kids to run and explore and the accommodations were luxurious. My cousin joined us for a beautiful dinner in a private firelit garden... More

I spent the weekend here with my husband and 5 months baby, it is a wonderful place, each room is different, food is excellent, service is just perfect. I wonder how they keep tree room so clean, it isthe perfect place to relax before or after a safari.

We began our adventure in Africa at this "treehouse" hotel, and it was FABULOUS! From the personal care and attention from the owner Paul to the treehouse and the food, we could not have had a better experience. This is definitely a place we would love to visit again. Our 2 night stay could not have been better.

My boyfriend and I went to Ngong house to spend a weekend out of Nairobi. The experience was fantastic, we stayed in one of the three houses which was beautifully decorated and perfectly maintained. We then went for sundowners around the campfire and had a very nice dinner. The place is really beautiful and quiet. The owner comes to make... More

My wife and I just spent a night at Ngong House and had a wonderful time. It's a perfect getaway for those of us living in Nairobi. The treehouse was very cool, decor was really interesting - bed was a converted Swahili dhow, as was the bathtub, and the walls are mosaics of Kitengela glass. We had sundowners around the... More

We were only in Kenya for a couple days before shooting off to a Safari, but the stop over was great. The food was excellent and the bungalow was very comfortable. The host made us feel at home and introduced us to the others staying at the House. The main house was beautiful. They even walked us over to the... More

The service and food are suburb and the tree houses are terrific! That's right, you stay in tree houses and each one is different. I can't recommend Ngong House strongly enough; it's a must stay. It's a great way to finish off a safari or to shake off the jet lag. And it's just down the road from the Giraffe... More
