I planned this as a surprise for my husband and I too was very impressed. The booking was smooth they are very efficient with their reservations. Check in was smooth with a very helpful Mary. Our tree house exceeded our expectations. It was clean with a nice set up of a lounge and a bed upstairs. Their all inclusive is... More

Ngong House went way beyond my high expectations in every way. The owner and the staff could not have possibly been more gracious, helpful and available. They made me feel truly at my own home yet I had as much privacy as I desired. I had a fabulous massage on my treehouse veranda every day. Every meal was great and... More

It's not easy to find, or quick to get to, especially in Friday afternoon Nairobi traffic. It took us over two hours to travel from Wilson Airport after a short flight from Kilimanjaro. The next day (Saturday), on the way to Jomo Kenyatta, we passed Wilson after only 20 minutes. In the Karen Hills north of Nairobi city, an upmarket... More

We spent our first night in Kenya here and it was sensational! Just an ideal way to ease into an African adventure, with a rustic but elegant fit out to our treehouse, and an excellent fireside meal. Although its a trek to get from the international airport to this part of Nairobi, its worth it, and if you are heading... More

Some things or places are quite simiply worth the wait. True that in traffic and with construction getting there during rush hours will be a challenge, but then you do and a whole new world comes to life as Paul and his staff awaken a spirit of Africa past as they welcome you "home". Uniquely appointed and individually designed each... More

We made the mistake of staying here when we had a late evening arrival, it was already dark, and an early morning departure from Jomo Kenyatta airport. The problem is that the hotel is too far from the airport; the traffic is too congested with all the construction activity taking place; and, the airport is basically chaotic. Having said all...

Dear Guest, First of all we would like to thank you for taking the time for your review. We know that the current construction on the main road to Ngong House is creating terrible delays. The construction however is supposed to be finished soon, and when it is done the drive between us and the International Jomo Kenyatta airport will... More

Secluded and peaceful, yet a short drive away from everything. The rooms [houses] are beautiful with carefully selected details. We spent three days there and loved every minute. For me, I keep on coming back, one can never have enough of Ngong house

This place is very special, equally wonderful for tourists arriving or departing nairobi, jaded nairobians and business folk. Tree houses and log cabin are spectacular, very carefully and thoughtfully decorated. Paul, the owner, has a pretty special eye for detail. You will normally be seated for your meal in a special place, with beautiful flower and idiosyncratic decoration. It is... More

We stayed at Ngong House for two nights at the end of our incredible 7 day safari. We had orginally booked The Giraffe Manor but they proved totally inflexible so our travel agent recommended Ngong House - and we are so glad they did. Ngong House is unique, quirky and wonderfully romantic. Our treehouse was beautifully decorated, relaxing and a... More

My husband, friends, and I only stay one night, and we were definitely not ready to leave. The accommodations are so unique and so well designed. Absolute one of a... More
