Nairobi Tented Camp – The people that make it happen

Nairobi Tented Camp (or NTC as we like to call it) is our little haven in the heart of Nairobi National Park.  Part of the Gamewatchers and Porini Safari Camps group, the camp is the only one of its kind in the Nairobi National Park. Gamewatchers Safaris have been operating for over 20 years and are based in Nairobi on the United Nations Crescent, next to the modern Village Market shopping complex in Nairobi’s diplomatic district. From here we provide personalized safari arrangements for clients who prefer a more individual safari programme, avoiding the mass-market tourist lodges. Nairobi Tented Camp gives you the chance to start your safari just after you land at the airport in Kenya, with a game drive in the park viewing wildlife on the way to camp. NTC is a great option for your first night in Nairobi, staying in the forest surrounded by the sounds of nature instead of being in a city hotel. Our friendly and experienced staff will be delighted to help and advise you in planning your safari and combining Nairobi Tented Camp in your itinerary.
