Beautiful eco camp with great amenities! The food at the restaurant was great and prices were fair. It’s also a good environment for meeting other travelers, ie at meals or by the pool. I will definitely stay here again when I’m back in Nairobi!

Lovely secluded location south of the main city so easily reached from the International Airport. Beautiful grounds, clean comfortable accommodation, we will be happy to stay there again and would recommend it as an alternative to hotel accommodation. I thought the breakfast was a little penny pinching as for example, on a B&B basis the breakfast might consist of an omelette with toast but if you want to have baked beans with it the beans cost extra. This did seem to be the only casualty of budget restraint though, in all fairness.

Clean and Safe

This is a safe, clean campsite and dorm-style tent offering in Karen. It is away from.cemtral Nairobi but easy to access via public transport or the southern bypass.
