“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2011

I stayed at NTC for 5 days and each day was amazing, from the facilities, to the staff, and even the food the whole place is awesome. The camp is in a great location, right in the middle of the national park, which is full of so many amazing animals, yet you are still situated close to the centre of Nairobi. I would recommend the camp to anyone for a short break or even a longer stay like i had.

A big thank you to the Nairobi Tented Camp team! We enjoyed the hospitality, professionalism and beauty of your camp and the food was just delicious! Kim the manageress was fabulously hospitable along with the rest of her staff who made us feel right at home. I was amazed at the quality of game in this park with the city skyline never far from sight! I will certainly visit this camp again!

I was in Nairobi on business and spenrt the weekend at NTC. What an absolute pleasure being out in the bush instead of in the concrete jungle. The camp is close to Nairobi but you feel as if you are miles away from anything.
The game drives were fantastic with Peter, a very knowledgeable guide.who not only knows his animals but his birds as well.
The food is wonderful, the company excellent and the experience one that I would not have missed for the world!

My twin daughters (aged 5yrs) and I had a fantastic stay in the new tented camp in the middle of Nairobi Game Park. It gave us a real safari experience with top-rate service with none of the hassle and expense of getting to one of the larger but more crowded/well-known game parks. The accomodation was in luxurious tents, which the children loved. And the food and service was fantastic. Meal-times were moved to accomodate the children, and the Maasai 'askaris' who accompanied us everywhere to ensure our safety kept a constant eye on the children. We saw a fantastic amount of animals including lion, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, antelope etc. and we saw only two other cars the whole time we were on our game drives. It far exceeded my expectations, and I would recommend people with children, or on short stays in Kenya give it a go.

Room Tip: All the tents are lovely.

This is the place to stay if you love nature and want to stay outside the traffic and chaos of a bussy metropole. A short taxi ride from the airport or your meetings down-town, you can relax in your own tent with all facilities and an excellent personal service. Dinner was served while the sunsets and the sounds of the jungle developed around us. If you are interested you can take part in an early morning safari with an impressive diversity of wildlife. We enjoyed breakfast while the animals arrived at their favorite waterspot.

Room Tip: I enjoyed to stay in the tent closest to the river

NTC is a perfect option if you would like to go on safari but don't want to drive too far, have small children who don't enjoy being jostled in the back of a vehicle and want to be sure to see game. In many ways it is better. We were totally alone on our game drives and were able to see and enjoy the game without worrying about another group of tourists arriving behind us - anyone who has been on safari elsewhere knows what a treat this is!

The camp is an oasis of space and greenery 15 minutes from the centre of Nairobi. It's almost hard to believe that the city is so close as you sit there watching a beautiful lion under a tree or an enormous rhino stroll across your path. The Tented camp is glorious and right up there with the best safari lodges in terms of comfort, luxury and attention to detail. We enjoyed fabulous meals and were totally spoilt by the wonderful staff. I thoroughly recommend it and encourage you to go

Room Tip: Just ask for a tent with a view!

Nairobi Tented Camp is surely one of a kind; beautifully designed, constructed and orchestrated it is a hidden oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi. Whether a seasoned safari goer looking to avoid central Nairobi or an African bush virgin looking to dip your toe, this camp is the solution. The en-suite tented rooms are the last word in glamping, the food and wine is fantastic and the staff seem to love the camp and love spoiling their guests even more. We stayed for one night and managed to fit in two game drives where we saw impressive amounts of game, plus drinks by the fire and a leisurely dinner in the atmospheric dining tent complete with the softest sheepskin seats I have ever come across. And when we finally retired to bed there were hot water bottles waiting, despite it being a mild eveing -heaven!
