“A million miles away from the city madness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014

We took our two children (3 and 5) to the camp for two nights during a 2 week break in Kenya. We wanted to do a safari without having to drag the kids out to the Masai Mara. It's hidden in the Forest within the park and you feel a million miles from everything. It's small, intimate and unbelievably relaxing. In two nights (and three days) we squeezed in two game drives and a trip to the elephant orphanage. We had rhino eating outside the tent at night, something I've not experienced before. The food is excellent, service is highly personal and our safari guide/driver Andrew was friendly and engaging with the children. The park was quiet for both of our drives (taken late afternoon) so we had none of the safari-bus madness we've experienced in the Mara. Highly recommend this as a break for Nairobi city folk, but also for tourists on holiday in Kenya. There's something very special about this place and the people who work there. Hope to go back next time we're in Kenya. (and if you need some quiet work time, they have Wi-Fi!)

Honestly if someone told me that spending a night at the Nairobi National Park would be amazing, i would probably have brushed them off. But having have experienced the simplicity yet exotic scenery this place has to offer, i would recommend anyone to come and camp here. it was an amazing experience.

We only had two days to squeeze in a safari and the Nairobi Tented Camp was everything we could have asked for and more!
The people were AMAZING! Everyone (Clemens, Silas, Daniel, Issa, Dixon, Peter) took such good care of us! We wanted for nothing. All we had to do was ask.
Food was delicious. We were astounded that such a variety of delicious dishes could come from a safari camp.
Issa was an amazing guide and found us lions everywhere.
Looking forward to returning!

After a day time flight, it was great to be met at JKA and transported direct to the camp, where I could settle in and have a good night's rest in peaceful, comfortable surroundings so I was refreshed before starting the rest of my adventures. The staff, led by Chloe, were very welcoming and helpful, the food excellent, the camp very restful, plenty of animals to be seen on a game drive.
There is a good range of things to do outside the National Park, too, if you have time. I visited the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage - they do a fantastic job and it was a joy to see the little ellies so well cared for and happy.
Two nights at this camp proved to be an excellent way to start a safari holiday. I felt rested, pampered, and with my appetite whetted to continue on to different areas, including other Porini camps which offered the best accommodation and experiences I have encountered in my three trips to Kenya.
Highly reccommended.

The perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of Nairobi.....and only minutes to get to! Once inside the National Park and at NTB you are taken to a different world of peace and tranquility. Staff at NTB were excellent and food superb. Highly recommend NTB, only camp inside the park, a park that offers an extensive range of animals to view.

After a two journey around Africa we had the pleasure to stay with Clemence and her wonderful staff in this jewel in Nairobi. The solitude of the camp was made even more special by the accommodation and meals served with such a smile. To sit an watch animals grazing as you sit around a camp fire finished our trip in style. The guide on our drives, Andrew, was one of the best we had shared time with in 5 other countries and we would return to Kenya and safari with him again at Game Watchers Safaris. we wished we could have stayed longer and my 4 adult children all have vowed to bring partners back to the tented camp. Don't miss the opportunity to share this gem in Nairobi

You could easily imagine that you've been transported a few hundred kilometres from Nairobi, so quiet is the camp and so dense the forest around it. All the sounds of the city are replaced by jungle sounds at night. And yet you've travelled only a few kilometres from the city.

The Nairobi Tented Camp inside the Nairobi National Park is a great alternative to driving three hours or more visit the otherwise nearest conservancy from Nairobi, and a great base from which to explore this gem of a park. I would also imagine that a visitor to the city with a weekend on his or her hands would appreciate the opportunity of spending it in this comfortable resort rather than in a city hotel.

The food and service are excellent.
