“Over-Lander Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

I planned to stay at Jungle Junction for a few days to make use of the workshop facilities but the welcoming atmosphere and the collection of diverse, like minded travelers had me stretch my stay to almost two weeks. The expertise of the mechanics onsite and the owner, Chris Handschuh, proved invaluable in getting my bike up and running. Combine this with great food, friendly staff and warm hospitality and you have a winning resort amidst the craziness that is Africa. Great value, cold beer and a beautiful location, it is a must on anyones over-land adventure.

We stayed here for two weeks in total. A bit out of the centre however in Karen which is quiet and green with good places to stock up for food and else.

Especially a good spot for overlanders, dont go anywhere else.

Spacious, clean, quiet and ran by a team of good personnel.

Owner is a good help with plenty of contacts to get you what and where you want.

Nairobi does not have plenty of campsites and if you want quality for your money this is a perfect choice.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

We stood for a week (Jan 2014) in the Jungle Junction and really liked it. The place moved and is now very safe, the security has been heavily upgrade: 2,5 m walls with barbed wire, 3 watchman at night on duty, 200m to the police station, watch dogs emergency buttons and a armed security company. That's what I call pretty safe.
Apart from that the athmosphere is really nice, Chris the owner tries to make everybody feel at home, camping and the food is good and inexpensive ( at least for Nairobi standards, dinner Kshs 550, camping 700). If needed, you can be driven to the airport or into town, 200m away there is a market to buy the basics. Chris operates a workshop for motorcycles and cars, he even had some new tires for us though those ones for the big motorcycles (Honda NX650 and XRV 750) are not common in Africa. He is a trained BMW mechanic and has an excellent knowledge of the common cars (Landcruiser/Rover) as well.

We made some bonfires and BBQs on our own, and had a really good time waiting for our Sudan Visa. Met a lot of other Transafrica travellers and exchanged a lot of advice.
