“Nairobi Tented Camp - Keeping the dream alive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2010

I can't speak highly enough of the new Nairobi Tented Camp in Nairobi National Park. I had just come in from an incredible 2 week safari around Kenya and was sad to be returning to city life. To delay the inevitable as long as possible I decided to avoid staying at a hotel and spend my final night in the bush instead. The camp was fantastic, great showers, incredibly comfortable beds and delicious food - but the highlight was sitting around the campfire with good company listening to Robin's wonderful music and singing. It is definitely the perfect way to start or finish your trip, the camp is conveniently close to the airport but somehow manages to feel worlds away.

Stayed October 2010, traveled solo

What an amazing experience, we joined Guy Lawrence at the new nairobi tented camp for an introductory breakfast & guided tour of the new Tented Camp that has been launched within Nairobi Park! On arrival my phone signal died & immediately I was thinking, of the possibilites of staff retreats, management or board level meetings without disturbances, an easy retreat for our foreign business visitors, in which we can add an incredible bush & game park experience to our foreign business associates' visits.....great!

We stayed in Nairobi Tented Camp for one night... and in the words of one of the other guests, it is the perfect place to 'keep the dream alive for one more night'. We live in Nairobi but she had just finished a safari, and this was the ideal place to relax and enjoy bush life for one more night before getting on the plane back to London. We arrived around sundown time; and had drinks around a roaring fire before a delicious three course, fully plated meal in the comfort of the mess tent which has chairs covered in gorgeous sheepskin throws. After excellent food, we sat around the camp fire again and chatted whilst the masai staff played a guitar and sang. it was immensely peaceful. The next morning we were visited by a small family of warthog who came down to the Kisembe Stream which is in front of the camp. Service was great and can't find fault with it at all. A great bush experience in Nairobi!
