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

On a quick trip to Nairobi I stayed at Ngong House. Arriving close to midnight, someone quickly came to the door, checked me in and had porters carry my luggage to my bungalow.My bungalow, or tree house, as they call them, had a deck, large living area and large bathroom. The bathroom was a delight! The shower provided "rain", the... More

Met by ever friendly staff who welcome you with a hot towel and a fresh glass of juice in the warm dining/lounge of the main reception that is tastefully furnished. The accommodation is a wow factor, with tree houses built on stilts, each with its' own character. You gather around the camp fire at night and are served with delicious... More

Ngong House is special. A place where nothing is too much trouble and the detail is looked after. The accommodation and general areas are well decorated and have a comfortable easy air. The tree houses are a real treat even for us, who have travelled a lot in East Africa. The food is well executed, don't be afraid to ask... More

Driving through residential suburbs, down a interlocking stone road you get to Ngong House. Far from the wilderness setting you imagine when you see the web site. However, I was pleasantly surprise once inside the gates. The treehouse we stayed was romantic with the dow boat bath, nets around the bed, secluded from other places. The porch was perfect place...

We loved the tree house where everything was made from natural materials. Not one straight wall or door and that's the charm if it. The views from inside are just great. The food was very nice and we enjoyed it in the cosy atmosphere of the fireplace ( one in every corner!). A very nice outing just outside Nairobi.
