Ngong House

Ngong House is a unique experience: Tree houses that also offer luxuries like four poster beds, crisp linen and gourmet food are just the beginning. Built entirely from wood, each bi-level tree house is comprised of a bedroom area upstairs and a living area on the lower floor. Being raised 15 ft from the ground, they allow for uninterrupted views of the Ngong Hills. The talents of regional artists and artisans add many of the finishing touches, such as hand woven rugs, bedcovers, lamps and stained glass. At the back of the house is a spacious bathroom with a shower and twin sinks. The front of the tree house is where you can eat, sleep, sunbathe or just enjoy the view. Evenings start with sundowners on your verandah at tree level, from where you can watch the breathtaking sunsets over the Ngong Hills. After sunset guests gather around the camp fire under an acacia tree nearby the swimming pool. Dinner is served in a half open thatched rondavel with a huge fireplace and plenty of candles, creating this unique dinner atmosphere only found at Ngong House. Kenyan chefs serve food prepared with local ingredients including game meat, fresh lake fish, seafood flown in from the Indian Ocean, complemented by the freshest vegetables and salads. Lunch is served in the garden under one of the many indigenous trees. Ngong House ideally situated to visit many of Kenya's best attractions: Nairobi National Park, Karen Blixen Museum, wonderful golf courses and the market in downtown Nairobi. Nature walks are a must, especially to visit the Giraffe Center (home of the endangered Rothchild’s Giraffe), a twenty minute walk away.
