An absolute delight to sample real "Wild Africa". Camp was so authentic, food fabulous and plentiful, game drives exquisite. Just brilliant. . I strongly advise would-be safari goers to give this little gem a try

I can't believe this national park and this camp are so close to the craziness of Nairobi city. What a fantastic place to stay - the staff were just so attentive and wonderful! The food was gourmet and the sleeping tents gorgeous. A real gem and I think underrated/ overlooked. Some good game in the NP as well, although not...

After a very long journey I was more than happy to spend two nights in the Nairobi Tented camp to rest and recover from the inevitable jetlag. The staff were so warm and friendly I immediately felt at home and could hardly believe the beautiful tent together with folded towels and scattered rose petals. The lounge and dining area were...

We only stayed one night upon our arrival in Nairobi prior to our trip to the coast in Lamu and had the most amazing experience. We arrived late at night which was NO problem for Andrew and the rest of the crew that received us with open arms. We had a full 3 course dinner in the most beautiful glamping-style...

I stayed here for 1 day and night. Great place and still quiet though though the city is not that far away. We saw rhinos as well as antelope, giraffes and buffalo. Recommend you stay here before you head to the bush like I did because you get a good rest if you have flown in from far away. Great...

This camp was absolutely gorgeous. The staff was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the animals, history of Kenya and conservation. I learned so much staying here. The food was delicious. It was such a rewarding experience to sleep inside Nairobi National Park and hear lions roaring at night! I highly recommend this camp. I got to see lions, rhinos, serval...

A night at the Nairobi National Park was a great way to start our Kenyan safari. We were met at our hotel by a Gamewatchers Safaris representative and taken to meet our guide Andrew. Andrew was very friendly and extremely knowledgable. We got to see two male lions after a kill, black and white rhinos, giraffe and many more species...

What an amazing opportunity for anyone travelling to Nairobi. I would definitely recommend that if you are in Nairobi on business, add an extra day or 2 to experience this accommodation and park. It is unique, relaxing, comfortable and such a contrast to the city. We stayed here for 1 night prior to starting a safari with Gamewatchers Porini Camps....

I knew I was going to do a safari in the park but couldn't decide whether to spend the extra money staying overnight at the tented camp - so so so glad I did! It was a really incredible experience staying in the middle of the park with wildlife roaming around outside, but in truly beautiful, comfy, warm accommodation -...
