Ngong House

This beautiful, luxurious and romantic home stay  gives the impression you are out in the African Bush - yet you are only 20 minutes away from downtown Nairobi.

Guests stay in imaginative wooden tree houses facing the distinctive Ngong Hills. These are not any ordinary tree houses! They are double storied, fantastic creations with superb attention to detail and every comfort imaginable.

Imagine stained glass windows, fully stocked bar, brass showerheads, comfy couches, hand made furniture and lamps. Cupboard doors have been fashioned from old Arab ships.

Big windows make the most of the view and a small kitchen allows the staff to serve your meals in the privacy of your own tree house!

The five thatched tree houses are spacious (75 sq m), well-spaced and hidden from each other by plenty of natural bush. One of the tree houses is lower and requires less climbing. Another is suitable for families as it can accommodate two extra beds.

The tree houses are named for the four points on the compass and are decorated accordingly. There are also two rooms in the main house suitable for older people. Guests have full use of the 10 acre grounds, including the swimming pool and adjoining bar and dining room.

Breakfast and lunch can be served on the shady lawns; cocktails are served by the campfire and dinner is served in an open sided thatched building with a fireplace, lit with candles.

The food is excellent, prepared by the owners with great attention to detail. Paul Verleysen is ably assisted by his son, Christof, who acts as manager and host, both bringing flair and energy to the task. For a luxurious, romantic and very special stay in Nairobi, Ngong house is the place.
