On your arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport you are transferred to your overnight stay at Nairobi Tented Camp within the city’s national park. Apart from being Kenya’s oldest official reserve, this park is also the largest protected area in the world within such close proximity of a city centre. Manmade dams attract water-dependent herbivores during the dry season and the park is one of the country’s principal rhino sanctuaries. Birders also have a field day here with over 300 recorded species to be spotted in the park, including northern migrants that pass through between March and April.
Your authentic canvas tent offers luxurious comfort with an en suite bathroom where you can enjoy fire-heated showers at short notice. Sheep-skin rugs cover the floor to create a cosy atmosphere and your furnished verandah is a contemplative refuge overlooking the valley and acacia forest. Choose between low wattage LED lighting in your canvas home or the romance of candles and gas lanterns.
Choose between an expertly guided 4×4 game drive or a visit to the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage – one of the world’s most successful orphan elephant rescue and rehabilitation programmes which has been responsible for hand-raising over 150 infant elephants and reintegrating them back into the wild.
