I'm not sure how to review this camp, as we were well taken care of by the friendly staff. If you are going on 10-14 days to Mara and Amboseli and plan on spending the next two weeks in Porini tented camps in those National parks you may want to skip this one.
However: If you only have a day or two available whilst in Nairobi on business and would like to get the feel of a tented camp in the bush - this camp is great!! You will sleep well and experience wildlife up close. You will also be taken good care of by the very friendly and service-minded staff. You will fall asleep to weird sounds from various animals and you will be safe and sleep well. You will also experience a tour around the National Park in close proximity to wildlife. You will eat excellent meals and feel pampered. So, yes - this camp can be recommended.
It is when you travel onwards to Porini Camps in Amboseli and/or Mara you will be stunned and realize how a safari with wildlife and tented camps is intended to be!!
With that in mind: This is unique with wildlife and wilderness so close to the Nairobi skyline.
