Shared Rooms Help! A shared room (typically a dorm) is a bedroom which you share with other people from the property. The number of beds in a room is shown in the room name, e.g. ‘5 Bed Dorm’, and you can book as many as you need. Some properties have male only dorms and female only dorms.

6 Bed Dorm - Mixed (Shared bathroom)

Breakfast included
Private Rooms Help! A private room is a room that is not shared with other people from the property – in other words, you book and pay for all the beds in the room. If you are traveling alone, for example, but want to book a double room, you must pay for two people in order to book the whole room.

If you would like to book an airport transfer with us, please contact us directly with your flight number and arrival time. If you plan to arrive at the camp before 06:00, you need to book accommodation for the previous night so you can check in immediately (otherwise there is nowhere to sleep until checkin which is around 2pm). Check out is 11:00.

Location Information

Located in the peaceful, leafy area of Langata, the camp is ideally located to explore some of Nairobi’s favourite attractions, while being out of the hustle and bustle of the city centre.

Within a 5-10 minute drive of the camp you can be at Sheldrick's Elephant Orphanage, Langata Giraffe Centre, Karen Blixen Museum, Nairobi National Park, Bomas of Kenya, KWS Orphanage and KWS Boardwalk, and Mamba Village.

We are 2.5km from the newly built Galleria Shopping Centre – where you will find a supermarket, chemist, ATMs, Foreign Exchange (Forex), many banks, as well as a variety of restaurants, bars and eateries.

At the Galleria Shopping Centre there is also a modern medical clinic which can sort out any illness or ailments 24/7.

The camp is only 25km from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) and can take less than 30 minutes (no traffic).

Only 9km from Wilson Domestic Airport, taking just a 10-15 minute drive connections to anywhere in Kenya are easily within your reach.

Around 7km (in a direct line) from the city centre, you can enjoy the ‘safari atmosphere’ while staying in one of Africa’s busiest cities. You can reach the city via taxi or public transport.

We have a travel office on-site so if you need help with booking safaris, airfares, bus, train, day tours, rafting, balloon safaris, basically anything that you might need during your visit to East Africa - we can help!
