We only had a week in Nairobi and wanted an escape close to the city where we could come together with family, give the kids a great experience, see lots of game, be extremely comfortable, eat well, have an adventure and relax. Too much to ask? No - the Nairobi Tented Camp gave us all that and more. We are not campers by nature, so the comfortable tents, gourmet food (all cooked to our various dietary requirements, including a birthday cake), comfortable beds with hot water bottles, bathrooms with hot showers and high quality toiletries, were highly appreciated. Contrast that with two great game drives in the wilds of the Nairobi National Park where we saw (5!) white rhino, herds of zebra, kongoni, impala, thompson gazelle, giraffe, buffalo, crocodiles, all sorts of birds, eland, and more. Having grown up in Nairobi, I was surprised and delighted by the amount of game, and how close we were able to get to the animals. The skillful and knowledgeable guides knew where to drive us, how to spot things and provided kids and adults alike with important information about the animals and conservation efforts. It really was an unforgettable experience. Special thanks to manager Will and the amazing staff at NTC. We'll be back as soon as we can!
