Ngong House


  • The design of the treehouses is wonderfully quirky
  • Guests are invited to gather by the bonfire for pre-dinner drinks


  • Small pool
  • The nocturnal tree hyraxes are fascinating, but can be extremely noisy

Fodor's Review

A contrast to the rather grand, colonial-era hotels such as the Norfolk and Stanley, Ngong House is a fabulous boutique hotel located in the quiet suburb of Karen. Accommodation is in six individual treehouses set in a large garden, and constructed from indigenous materials that blend in with the surrounding thorn and acacia trees. Each have individually carved wooden beds, and a few have baths made from traditional canoes. Service is unobtrusive but attentive, and the impeccable attention to detail is followed through from the fresh roses by the front door to the beautifully presented meals served in different parts of the property. All drinks and meals are included. There's also a cottage and log cabin, each with two rooms, and a double room in the main house for less mobile guests.
