When it looked like I would have to spend quite a bit of time at Nairobi airport waiting for a flight I searched for some ideas and came across Nairobi Tented Camp - this was the best thing I did, I spent one night away from the hustle and bustle of the city but not that far away from the airport. It was a luxurious camping experience - the accommodation, the food the service and friendliness of the staff. Plus as a bonus you get to go on some game drives to see some wildlife. I had been working in Tanzania for the past 5 weeks - I did manage to do a safari in Tanzania but missed out on seeing a black Rhino out of the 'big 5' - but managed to see a black & white rhino plus a few more lions and zebras. I would do this again if I was ever travelling through Nairobi again. Thanks to all the staff for a great experience.
