ONE FORTY EIGHT NAIROBI
This is an eight-room house with accompanying bungalow apartments, sleeping 16 people total. The main entrance is expansive such that the massive paintings on the walls, wooden dhow tables, long green sea-glass chandelier and voluminous sofas seem small. Patter up the slim staircase of the main house and you’ll find each of the rooms are decorated completely differently and have their own setup. Peer into as many as you can – they’re a feast for the eyes. Rates from Ksh 42,000.
NAIROBI TENTED CAMP
Nestled on a valley amidst a riverine forest within the Nairobi National park is this camo, one of the only accommodation options set up within the premises and a perennial family favourite. The property comprises nine comfortable self-contained luxury safari-style tents outfitted with double or twin beds, a writing desk, clothing rack and bedside table, complete with a charming front porch. The camp can set up either an early morning or evening game drive. Resident rates from Ksh 10,000.
