Kambu Nairobi Camp

Tucked away on an acre of riverfront land only twenty minutes outside of Nairobi, Kambu Nairobi Camp is serene and convenient, whether you want to explore the city or escape it. From the private campsite or cottage, you can walk down to the river to relax, take in a sunset from the tiny island, or fire up the grill for a BBQ. Four-legged family members are welcome!

Only 1.4 kilometers off Limuru Road, the camp is accessible by public and private transportation.

  • Public: Take the 107 bus from Odeon in the CBD to Ndenderu Stage.
  • Private: Follow the Google Maps directions to Kambu Campers. You will turn off Limuru Road at Cactus Service Station and drive down a 1.4 kilometer murram road. If you are coming from the north or west, add Cactus Service Station as a midpoint on your route so that you are not led down a closed road. We are within the drop-off and pick-up radius for Bolt and Uber.

Popular Nairobi spots aren’t too far away: Two Rivers (18 minutes), Village Market (22 minutes), Westlands (35 minutes), and Karen (35 minutes).

If you enjoy cooking for yourself, there is a charcoal BBQ grill, two firepits, and fresh water. The cottage also has a two-burner gas stove, refrigerator, and drinking water. If cooking on vacation isn’t for you, food delivery is available from Bolt Food (including restaurants in Ruaka, Two Rivers, and Village Market) and Yuuki Pork House.
