"Nairobi Tented Camp - a work in progress"
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" See all these reviews: 9n in Kenya
"Back to Nature!"
I cannot recommend this experience highly enough. Warm welcome, fabulous surroundings and awe inspiring animal sightings. All this coupled with flush toilets, electricity and freshly cooked delicious food - now THIS is camping!
I would return in a heartbeat." See all these reviews: 2n in Kenya
"Good place to start or end your safari"
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." See all these reviews: 14n in Kenya
"Nairobi Tented Camp"
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" See all these reviews: 5n in Kenya
