Fodor's Expert Review Nairobi Tented Camp

Nairobi National Park, Nairobi, Nairobi Area, Kenya

Insulated by a hidden glade—home to leopards, lions, and hyenas—Nairobi Tented Camp is in a secluded part of Nairobi National Park, providing an authentic bush experience within a few miles of the city center. Tents are comfortably equipped with large en suite bathrooms (with traditional hot-water bucket-showers). The lounge tent is sumptuously furnished with all the comforts of home and set meals are served around a big table, but this is a carefully prepared eco-camp that could potentially be removed within 48 hours, leaving zero imprint on the natural habitat. Hot water bottles tame Nairobi's cool high altitude nights but the bush around is as wild as anywhere in Africa; you might have a giraffe or rhino wandering around the camp.


  • short transfers from JKIA and Wilson airports
  • if your plane lands after dark you'll be treated to a night drive en route to the camp
  • lunch served under an olive tree, dinners under the sky


  • Nairobi National Park entrance and camping fees are extra
  • the access road is bumpy with the last 200 meters (656 feet) on foot
  • the tents are quite close together
