A safari that will take your breath away

Your day in Nairobi Tented Camp starts with a freshly brewed hot drink bought to your tent before setting off for that famous safari tradition – an early morning game drive. Be lucky enough to catch the first rays of early morning sun as they burn off the nightly dusting of dew and stirs the plains game gently to life.

After a morning potentially filled with sightings of giraffe, buffalo and leopard return to camp for more warming cups of coffee, freshly baked breads and a hearty cooked breakfast. The camp is made up of eight double accommodation tents and a central mess tent, from which meals will be served. In the afternoon backgammon games might be enjoyed or a good read can be found from one of the many books in the library.

All meals are carefully crafted to compliment bush living without sacrificing on quality and there is nothing more blissful than sleeping off your three-course lunch in a swaying hammock under the shade of an olive tree.

As the day cools and the sun starts its journey West it will be time for another game drive – a chance to catch that evasive moment where a lion might decide it’s time to feast. Return to camp to drinks and stories around the campfire, before dinner under the vast African star lit sky and ultimately retreating to bed.

Your tent

Each of our nine tents house accommodation for two people and have their own toilet and shower, so you can enjoy the luxury of en-suite living ‘safaris style’, with hot water heated over a log fire and bought to your shower when you’re ready.

Low watt LED lighting in each of the tents will be run off rechargeable batteries and solar panels, otherwise guests can enjoy the romance of candles and lanterns… a truly authentic tented camp experience.

Comfortable beds are wrapped in cosy blankets and soft towels are at the ready after you’ve washed away the red Nairobi dust from the day. Each of the tents has the following:

• Twin or double bed
• Bedside tables
• Torch
• Gas and kerosene lanterns
• Wardrobe for hanging your clothes
• En-suite toilet with bucket shower and basin

• Writing desk with lamp
• Carpets of sheep skin rugs on the floor
• LED lighting
• Chairs and table on veranda for relaxing
• Luggage rack
• View into the valley and forest
