Nairobi Tented Camp
is located in the Nairobi
area of central Kenya
The first facility to be set up inside Nairobi National Park, around 10km to the south-west of the city centre, this place is a classic high specification tented camp located in riverine woodland in the western sector.
There is little doubt in the quality of the camp here and indeed the range of wildlife in the area is equally impressive.
What is less clear is whether or not it makes sense to even attempt to safari in somewhere which is so fundamentally compromised by the proximity of the city, even if the ambience in the immediate vicinity of the camp is relatively pleasant and undisturbed.
Nairobi Tented Camp can work for safari addicts who want to spend every possible night under canvas, for visitors to Nairobi who are unable to get out into a more remote game reserve or as a genuinely novel stopover for business travellers.
But we generally prefer to head to the two excellent lodges on the southern boundary of the park, namely The Emakoko
and Ololo Lodge
