Nairobi Tented Camp - a work in progress

We stayed here 1 night in order to visit the Sheldrick Elephant Sanctuary, where we had sponsored an orphaned elephant. The camp is perfectly situated for this as you can drive through the park to get to the sanctuary rather than use the main road, which was very busy at 5.00 pm when we were visiting. The camp itself is very well situated with the tents being very comfortable with a bush shower and a hot water bottle at night.

However the staff were clearly very willing and pleasant but didn’t really know how to run the camp in a polished way. For example I asked for another glass of water and they realised that they had run out. There was a look of panic and one of them then ran to the kitchen to find some.

Our driver who took us to the Sanctuary was clearly new to that route because he took a wrong turning and had to stop and phone for help. On the way back to camp we saw 3 rhinos running in the distance, but instead of slowing for us to try and engage with this encounter he drove at pace and left them behind. I said to him that “you are the driver that is given to people in a hurry”.

This camp has potential and the chance of seeing the endangered black rhino is an obvious attraction but at the moment I wouldn’t recommend that you included it in your itinerary unless, like us, the main reason is to visit the Sheldricks

I would return in a heartbeat.

Good place to start or end your safari

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of game and wildness of the Nairobi National Park as it is so close to the city.

The tented camp was comfortable with large tents with in suite bathrooms and large beds. The food was also very good there.

Probably the highlight was the excellent guide that we had. His name was Andrew and he was as good as any guide we had in Kenya.

The location of the park is convenient to come from the international airport and then even closer to Wilson airport to fly out to our next camp.

We arrived late at night so paid only half board for the first night stay and then spent another night at full board to take advantage of the ,morning and evening safari.

Nairobi Tented Camp review

Excellent.

We started a game drive a few hours off our flight and saw pretty much every animal one could wish for in just a few hours. We are birders and saw 50+ bird species in that time as well so were absolutely blown away.

The camp was in trees so no view but very comfortable. There is a waterhole near the main communal tent but no water in it when we were there. The food was good and ample. It was western food and tasty. The staff were great and our guide also.

Nairobi Tented Camp

Again I was the only person in camp, until the late afternoon when a couple arrived but I had the game drives to myself again.

The location so close to the city is amazing with rhinos, lots of lions and plentiful hartebeest. The tents are comfortable however they are in a wooded area so there are no views.

The visit to the baby elephant orphanage and the giraffe centre when I was leaving were also good fun
