Ngong House

This accommodation cannot yet be booked on Find more accommodation options in Nairobi.

Ngong House is a private, serene and luxurious home situated in Karen/Langata area of Nairobi that accommodates up to 24 guests.

The lodge overlooks Ngong Hills, only a few minutes from what used to be Karen Blixen’s coffee farm.

Secluded in 10 acres of private land, it is close to Nairobi National Park, 30 to 40 minutes from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, about 15 minutes from Wilson Airport (where all fly safaris depart from) and 20 minutes from the city centre.

Accommodation is mainly in luxurious tree houses, designed to provide great comfort to guests. Every unit is different in design: some have two levels with bedrooms upstairs and living areas on the lower floor raised 15 ft. from the ground to gain an uninterrupted view of the Ngong Hills over unspoiled bush.

Dining at Ngong House is a delight. From fresh succulent Molo lamb to lake fish and seafood from the Indian Ocean, the hotel’s meals are prepared and served accompanied by varieties of fresh local vegetables. The house’s Kenyan chefs have been specially trained by several visiting chefs from Belgium.

The garden under a canopy of acacia trees is the venue for serving breakfast and lunch. Dinner is served in a half open, majestic, thatched rondavel with a grand fireplace, or in another secluded area of the lodge. Every night, casual pre-dinner drinks and "bitings" are served around the campfire. This presents a chance to meet other guests and to chat with your host, Paul Verleysen.
