Nairobi Tented Camp. Deep within a riverine forest minutes from Jomo Kenyatta Airport, Wilson Airport and Nairobi City is a true wilderness experience.

With sweeping plains on one side and Nairobi city on the other, Nairobi National Park is a wildlife haven unlike any other, with guaranteed sightings of rhino a reason in itself to visit, and Nairobi Tented Camp offers guests the opportunity to really get to know this unique destination and its wildlife. International visitors will leave Jomo Kenyatta airport and within ten minutes start their wildlife encounter, with the last 20 minutes of their short half an hour journey filled with the excitement of their first game drive in Kenya.
Whether you are in Nairobi for tourism, a night stopover, international business or conferences, films or simply looking for a weekend break as a resident, Nairobi Tented Camp has something for everyone.
A safari that will take your breath away
Your day in Nairobi Tented Camp starts with a freshly brewed hot drink bought to your tent before setting off for that famous safari tradition – an early morning game drive. Be lucky enough to catch the first rays of early morning sun as they burn off the nightly dusting of dew and stirs the plains game gently to life.
After a morning potentially filled with sightings of giraffe, buffalo and leopard return to camp for more warming cups of coffee, freshly baked breads and a hearty cooked breakfast. The camp is made up of eight double accommodation tents and a central mess tent, from which meals will be served. In the afternoon backgammon games might be enjoyed or a good read can be found from one of the many books in the library.
All meals are carefully crafted to compliment bush living without sacrificing on quality and there is nothing more blissful than sleeping off your three-course lunch in a swaying hammock under the shade of an olive tree.
As the day cools and the sun starts its journey West it will be time for another game drive – a chance to catch that evasive moment where a lion might decide it’s time to feast. Return to camp to drinks and stories around the campfire, before dinner under the vast African star lit sky and ultimately retreating to bed.
