I had the privilege of staying at Nairobi Tented Camps for two nights in March.
Kim, the camp manager, runs the camp with a great deal of energy and enthusiasm and she and her team have managed to create a warm, relaxing and peaceful atmosphere in this sanctuary so close to the city.
The camp itself is most impressive as are the tents - proper beds, amazing showers (the guys managed to get the water temperature just right each time) and I had two of the best night’s sleep I’ve had in a long time.
The food, prepared by Chef Paul, was delicious and the effort that Paul, Henry and the team made with the bush breakfast on the final day made the experience truly memorable.
I did two game drives and my guide John was very knowledgeable meaning that I saw a huge number of animals, birds and plants including Lion, White Rhino, Black Rhino + her calf to name a few. The games drives, combined with a visit to Sheldrick's Elephant Orphanage, meant that I have an incredible set of memories and some brilliant photos too!
I’d highly recommend Nairobi Tented Camps whether you’re in Nairobi on business and looking to add on a night at the end of your stay, a resident looking for a weekend getaway or simply on holiday and looking for a great safari experience. I look forward to visiting Nairobi tented camps again soon!
