My friends and I signed up for a10 days trip to Egypt, but unfortunately it was canceled at the very last minute due to instability in the country. I was very frustrated because I had no idea how I could plan another trip in 2 days. I had always wanted to go to Kenya and I was referred to the Tribe Hotel. I reached out to them and they were extremely helpful. Not only did they sort out our accommodation, they also recommended and coordinated a safari package for us within a day. Our Egypt trip was canceled on Monday, we booked our Kenya trip on the same day and left on Wednesday night.
When we arrived at the Tribe Hotel, we found out that it was located in a high-end area in Nairobi, very close to the United Nation. We were there for four nights. The hotel is modern, the rooms are very nicely decorated. It reminded me of the Delano on South Beach or one of those luxury boutique hotels in NYC. I have seen a lot of "modern" but tacky hotels, but Tribe is a combination of contemporary, coziness and African tribal designs done perfectly right.
The service is very good at Tribe, they accommodated to our Safari schedules and allowed us early check ins and late check outs. Whenever we need to go anywhere in Nairobi, their concierge would take care of everything for us. Overall I just LOVED my experience at Tribe.
I also have to point out that the Tribe Hotel is connected to a mall called the Village Market, there are all sorts of cute shops and even a supermarket there. On Fridays, they host a Masai market, where many local vendors selling all sorts of African goodies such as handmade jewelry, home accessories, art etc. I compared prices with similar items I saw at the Safari camps, Masai market is cheaper because you can really negotiate.
The Safari camps recommended by Tribe was also EXCELLENT! We had such an amazing trip, never expected a last minute trip turned out to be so wonderful. Thank you for the people at Tribe to make this possible!!!! This is also my first trip to Africa, I am definitely going back soon!!!
