The Capital city of Nairobi is an ideal getaway for locals and foreign tourist alike. The city can accommodate all types of budgets.  Some attractions date back to the colonial and pre-colonial Kenya. In addition to strong heritage, a vibrant business community, an array of cultures Nairobi offers one an opportunities to experience all of this within a short drive from the city’s central business district or from any of the airports.  The Nairobi Tented Camp is one of the accommodation facilities within the Nairobi national park.  The property is managed and owned by Porini Camps. It does not have any fences around it and hence wildlife can easily walk through the eco-camp.  An ideal location for some luxury away from the hassle of the city.

An experience of the Camp and Park

The camp is located inside The Nairobi National Park and close to Sheldrick Elephants Orphanage. Away from the hustles and bustles of the city, take twenty minutes to drive from the Central business district and on to Langata road.  Once there, guests are treated to high-class comfort in the wilderness. Being a first-timer at the park may get one to be a little afraid knowing you will spend the night or two with the wild. It should, however, be noted that the level of security is high alert as is with all other families around the country located in various parks. (Thank God of helpful and friendly staff).   Hence one need’s not to worry. The camp is home to serenity, peace and tranquillity that words cannot quite describe. (I’m trying to !!!! ) The highlight of being at the facility is a game drive around the park and seeing the big fives.  On a good day, all four of the big five will be seen.
