Whilst the Nairobi National Park is amazing.....all those animals so close to the airports and city, this camp is a poor and rather second rate version of every other camp I have stayed at, in Kenya.
Having stayed at over 40 safari camps and lodges, over the last 15 years, I have to say this one was nothing special and expensive for the level of service and quality of the old tent. I never normally ever bother about the sleeping accommodation, when on a safari and certainly never feel the need to mention in a review, but am doing this time, since it was well below the average. Activities have to be booked, agreed and paid for separately to the main booking.
On the basis I love all things Kenya and am desperate for the National Park to not lose more land to development, as is currently being proposed, I am really sorry to have to write this review. The Park needs to generate money and tax, if it is to have any chance of long term survival, it is therefore a real pity that I feel the need to submit my honest, but less than positive review.
When in the Park and/ Nairobi generally, do make a bee line for the amazing Sheldrick Centre.....
You don't have to be a child to be moved to tears by the baby elephants and their stories...amazing!
