We loved this campsite so much that we stayed 3 times during our recent visit to Kenya!
It is a very relaxing place to stay with nicely maintained gardens and a wonderful gazebo to lounge round in all day. It is very peaceful and quiet here. The deluxe tents are more than comfortable and generally very good value for money. Even if you had booked a basic tent, I dare say that you would have found it very comfortable as there is a nice ambience to the place. The site is securely gated off and manned by a guard so you feel really safe at all times.
It is situated near the Kibera Slum, Giraffe Centre and around a half and hour walk to the city centre on foot so great location overall. The staff are more than happy to organise trips for you and offer reasonable rates for their services.
The only complaint I have to make is that behind the tents there is a factory/shop and you can hear men talking in the early hours of the morning so if you dislike noise then this may be an issue. So, I am knocking off a star rating for that. However, we asked the men to quieten down and they did just that so not such a problem. In any case, I have no doubt in my mind that had we asked the guard to speak to the men, then he would have done so on our behalf.
Breakfast is basic with a choice of say either scrambled eggs or pancake for breakfast with either coffee or tea included in room rate. However, there are other options if you like more (at a cost). More useful information now: turn right out of the gate, walk up then dusty road then left at main road, walk through petrol station, continue walking for 5 minutes and you will reach the supermarket Uchumi and many fast food places.
Very sad to leave....
