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.

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
