I spent the weekend at the Nairobi Tented Camp and would definitely consider going back. It was a fabulous experience and a perfect weekend retreat for someone working in Nairobi short-term and wondering what to do on the weekend. The camp itself is nestled in the wilderness, well hidden from the regular day-trippers to the park. I was picked up at the gates of the National Park and on the way to the camp, a lion crossed the road in front of us and two giraffes were spotted just off the road happily eating away at the trees. The staff at the camp are fantastic – friendly, welcoming and extremely helpful without being overbearing. The food is also delicious – full compliments to the chef. I did both an evening game drive and an early morning one and both were equally terrific. We saw buffalos, zebras, impalas, ostriches, lions, hyenas, giraffes, rhinos, heads of hippos (in the lake) and countless other birds and animals whose names I have already forgotten! The tents are spacious and comfortable and far more luxurious than one would expect of a tented camp. I would recommend the Nairobi Tented Camp to anyone who has a spare couple of days in Nairobi and who enjoys the outdoors.
