This is individualized and professional services at its best. This place caters to your every need. There is a chef on staff that will wait for your arrival from the airport. It is a wonderful place to get a little out of the city. Comfortable all around, wonderful hosts, amazing food if any of my friends were visiting Nairobi, I... More

We stayed again with visitors after a day in Nairobi National Park and we were not disappointed. Great staff, good food, beautiful surroundings and a really unique experience staying in a treehouse. Highly recommended!

I was going to give this establishment a better review based on its price point of $200 per night as quoted. Only at checkout when we received the bill did it transpire to be $200 PER PERSON per night! Is the Ngong House worth this money? Absolutely not! For $200 per night I would say the food is nice, the... More

We spent three nights here and it was magical. We were greeted with dinner by the fire when we arrived, even though it was after 11:00 pm! The treehouse was ingenious and beautiful--we saw others more recently built that were even more creative. Everything very comfortable. (Would have been nice to have in-room tea-making capabilities; even though they are happy... More

We came back to Ngong as we had an excellent stay during our previous safari. We were not disappointed with our second stay, the magic is still there! Not so far away, out of the city, you unplug right away. Warm beds at night, you feel like a child again in the tree house and let yourself start dreaming! Excellent... More

My last day before the departure from Africa was in Ngong House.The rooms are incredibly perfect and the dinner was really romantic and the staff very very professional. Probably the best lodge in Nairobi.

When you plan a safari you are often faces with the choice of a hotel in the city for the first or the last night. We had to do the same when we visited Kenya.. but we hate big hotels.. especially in Africa, you want that "Safari" feel from day 1 and with Ngong House with hit the nail on... More

Ngong House is a serene oasis with lovely, comfortable and interesting rooms- in various shapes and sizes. The treehouses are fun and unique; the suite is easy and convenient; the log cabin is beautiful and spacious with room to play (bar, pool table) and our favorite- the cottage is pretty, relaxing and private. The attentive, kind and welcoming staff take... More
