“best place I went in Kenya and Tanzania”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

I traveled all over Kenya and Tanzania. This place was my favorite -- I loved it even more than my safari experience. I was treated as a member of the family and through Mkenya Camp was able to access parts of Nairobi that never would have been accessible otherwise (parts of Kibera, clubs, property, etc). Its facilities were the best (hot water, wonderful dinners), and the woman who owns Mkenya Camp is more helpful than a travel agent.

Room Tip: if you have a big group, partying in the tents it the way to go. The tents are not like regular tent...
