Acacia Camp

Acacia Camp

13 cottages
Recommended for all ages.
All year

Delightfully set in a grove of yellow fever trees (Acacia xanthophloea), Acacia Camp, often known as Acacia Camp Swara Plains, Swara Plains Acacia Camp or Swara Acacia Lodge, lies within the 80km2 Swara Plains Conservancy, 24km from Nairobi International Airport and just 2km from the Mombasa highway. The camp was sold in 2017 and the new owners have since made many improvements, which are not yet reflected in our write-up here. We hope to rectify that soon by re-visiting the camp. Meanwhile, please ask Expert Africa for the latest information.

Our view of Acacia Camp

We’ve driven past Acacia Camp so many times that staying there for the first time in 2012 was a revelation. It’s quite possibly the quickest way to get truly into the bush after arrival in Nairobi and it’s just as easy to get back to the airport from the camp. We enjoyed everything about it – the garden setting, the good food, the simplicity of the cabins just a stone’s throw from the dining terrace and the plentiful evidence of flourishing plains wildlife so close to the city.
