“A unique conference venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2010

My organisation held their annual management meeting at Nairobi Tented Camp, and it turned out to be the perfect venue for us.

The fantastic staff helped to make the two days run very smoothly, working very hard to accomodate our many demands!

The foodsurpassed all of our expectations. There is a great variety of fresh homemade dishes and baked delights. We were all in agreement that the chef desereved a round of applause at the end of our stay.

The tents are exceedingly comfortable. It was endearing to find a little hot water bottle in my bed as I got in. I can honestly say that I had the best nights sleep there. I wasn't even woken by the lions roaing in the early hours.

All in all Nairobi Tented Camp is a great venue for a conference. It provides peace and tranquility to really get down to some business, with the occasional distraction of a family of warthogs walking by. I would thoroughly recommend Nairobi Tented Camp, for business and pleasure!

A wonderful concept and superlatively executed. A true "safari" camp within minutes of "down town Nairobi". Comfortable safari living literally on the doorstep of Nairobi. A great way to start or finish a safari.

We Live in Nairobi and needed a convenient get away from the city for a night. NTC proved to be the perfect combination. Close to the city, but very cleverly located in a tranquil forest in the Nairobi game park that we could have been 200miles from the city. The camp is beautifully done and the luxury tents are exactly that. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience, from food, to the staff to the accommodation. I would highly recommend it to anyone thinking of going there!!!

We live in Nairobi and my husbands company booked the new Nairobi Tented Camp for an early Christmas dinner with the option to spend the night. With two young kids we decided to spend the night rather than brave the roads at night. We were not disappointed. After a fantastic sundowner on a hill overlooking the national park, we retreated back to camp where there was an amazing fire and our luxurious tents waiting for us. The tents have been decorated in modern style, with solar lights and comfy cosy double beds with ensuite bathrooms. After finally settling the kids as they were on "safari excitement mode" we settled down to a delicious three course dinner.

The next morning after being in the bush for the night and hearing hyena calling and I am convinced a lion or two, we headed back into town through the park to take the kids to school. This twenty minute drive to school was the best school run ever. We may permanently move in!!!...

Thank you Willy and Guy for your hospitality, We have already discussed when we will be back and have recommended it highly to our "city" friends for a night out doing something wild in Nairobi!!..

We had a wonderful day trip to Nairobi tented camp complete with a luxurious lunch and absolutely excellent service. On the grounds right around the camp we saw unique vegetation and it was amazing to feel in the middle of complete wilderness whlie being so close to the city, This is the perfect accomodation for anyone looking for excellent service with chique, eco-friendly accomodations. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer!

I can't speak highly enough of the new Nairobi Tented Camp in Nairobi National Park. I had just come in from an incredible 2 week safari around Kenya and was sad to be returning to city life. To delay the inevitable as long as possible I decided to avoid staying at a hotel and spend my final night in the bush instead. The camp was fantastic, great showers, incredibly comfortable beds and delicious food - but the highlight was sitting around the campfire with good company listening to Robin's wonderful music and singing. It is definitely the perfect way to start or finish your trip, the camp is conveniently close to the airport but somehow manages to feel worlds away.

What an amazing experience, we joined Guy Lawrence at the new nairobi tented camp for an introductory breakfast & guided tour of the new Tented Camp that has been launched within Nairobi Park! On arrival my phone signal died & immediately I was thinking, of the possibilites of staff retreats, management or board level meetings without disturbances, an easy retreat for our foreign business visitors, in which we can add an incredible bush & game park experience to our foreign business associates' visits.....great!
