Nairobi Tented Camp
Deep within a riverine forest minutes from Nairobi is a true wilderness experience. You can arrive in Kenya and get ‘straight under canvas’ within 30 minutes of leaving the airport. Nairobi Tented Camp is an authentic tented camp in the heart of Nairobi National Park.
It is the first accommodation of any sort to be allowed in this unique safari destination; a wilderness escape where you can savor the thrill of camping in the heart of thick bushland right on the doorstep of Nairobi. 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 you the opportunity to really get to know this unique destination and its wildlife.
The camp consists of nine guest tents each with accommodation for two people. Each tent has its own toilet and shower, so you can enjoy the luxury of en-suite living ‘safaris style’, with hot water heated over a log fire and bought to your shower when you’re ready.
Low watt LED lighting in each of the tents runs off rechargeable batteries and solar panels, and for dining you can enjoy the romance of candles and lanterns – a truly authentic tented camp experience.
Nairobi is Kenya’s bustling capital city, often used as a jumping-off point for safari trips. In addition to the worthwhile museums, Karen Blixen’s home and markets in its urban core, the excellent Nairobi National Park is a large game reserve known for breeding endangered black rhinos and home to giraffes, zebras and lions. Next to it is a well-regarded elephant orphanage operated by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
