With an excellent possibility of spotting four of the Big Five, many Nairobi residents find the lodge a perfect antidote to the hustle and bustle of city life.
The Nairobi Park House is a privately owned family property which borders the Nairobi National Park on the Kitengela plains at the Emakoko and Mbagathi river junction.
Set just thirty five minutes from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, a lovely drive through Nairobi National Park it makes a perfect stop over point for those traveling further afield or a relaxing place to stay close to the city but away from the hustle and bustle. It is within easy reach of all the attractions of Nairobi as well as both airports – and yet it is in a totally wild environment.
The house has ten open plan cottages which can be king size doubles or twins. All of them are ensuite with bath tubs and showers and views over Nairobi national park. Each room has an outside deck and a fireplace. The property also has a swimming pool and an open plan dining area with bar and lounge.
An open, airy and informal environment has been created to allow guests to escape from the pressures of everyday life. Whether you are enjoying a cocktail in the viewing area or simply a coffee by the pool overlooking the river, relaxation is assured.
Take a game drive into one of the most unique game parks in the world, Nairobi National Park or visit the communities that border it.
Otherwise an excursion into Nairobi to visit the David Sheldrick wildlife trust, the giraffe centre or the local shops may be more appealing. Finally for the more adventurous, a helicopter trip to the world famous Masai Mara, or up Mt. Kenya might be the better alternative.
