Where you can stay close to Nairobi National Park

House of Waine

This luxury boutique hotel is located in Karen, off Bogani Road.   Formerly, House of Waine was a family house. It now serves as a luxury hotel with rooms named after the theme used in furnishing them. For example, the Manyatta has a portrait of a Maasai warrior and it is therefore aptly named after a Maasai homestead- a manyatta. Bustani is a garden room with spectacular view of the garden while Pwani has a coastal theme.

Ngong House

Located in Ngong, overlooking the Hills that Karen Blixen loved so much, Ngong House has luxury tree houses, log cabins, cottages and rooms.   The environment is serene and the service is exemplary.  Make your stay memorable by selecting any of the six tree houses and if you have a family, the log cabin will do.

Ole Sereni

This luxury resort overlooks the plains of Nairobi National Park.  From the outdoor swimming pool or the large window of your suite, the plains run for miles into the horizon, dotted by trees and thickets.  Follow the animals at dawn and dusk as they scurry into the plains in search of food or shelter.
