One Forty Eight (or 148 Hotel) is a little piece of wilderness just 25 minutes from Nairobi. This former private residence has been converted into a luxury boutique hotel filled with art and comfort, just a stone's throw away from a giraffe sanctuary and a national park. Learn more about this Nairobi, Kenya luxury hotel below.

With only eight rooms, One Forty Eight is an intimate setting in the tranquil surroundings of Nairobi’s Langata suburb. This Nairobi, Kenya luxury hotel was formerly an artist’s home and his work is featured among an eclectic mix of tribal and worldly accessories placed throughout the property.

There is a main house with three bedrooms and a loft for children with three beds, a shower, and a television making guests feel like they are right at home. An open-plan living area invites you to gather around the fireplace to chat. The veranda is the perfect place for dining or taking in the peaceful surroundings and catching sight of a peacock wandering by. The master bedroom has a double bed, large walk-in closet, outdoor veranda with seating, and an en-suite with a bathtub and shower. The other two bedrooms have en-suites.

Guests can almost exclusively explore this area on a game drive or on foot, enjoying access to pristine outdoor dining locations.

Comprised of just two intimate camps of nine tented suites each and a family tent; each elegant tent, with its own private butler and housekeeper reflects the ambiance and glamour of Kenyan explorers of old. Slip into a world of hardwood floors, polished silver and copper bathtubs juxtaposed against the romance of the open Mara plains, with their abundant herds of wildlife. Beautifully handcrafted artefacts, fine antiques, leather buttoned Chesterfield sofas, books, and crystal and candlelight adorn the comfortable sitting and dining areas.

Chui Lodge Day 7

Chui Lodge, situated in the heart of the Oserengoni Wildlife Sanctuary, comprises of 8 luxurious cottages set in a beautifully manicured garden. Enjoy international standard cusine under the shade of our acacia trees whilst you watch the wildlife drinking from the nearby waterhole.

The Lodge was designed and created by June Zwager; her vision was brought to life with help from the local community and her team of skilled craftsmen. The Lodge is built from simple bush stone, Acacia, Olive and Leleshwa wood all sustainably sourced from within the sanctuary. All furniture has been hand crafted at our onsite wood workshop and every piece is unique and adds to the African flare of Chui Lodge.

The dining room, lounge and bar area feature pillars and murals with intricate African carvings, African antiques and ochre coloured walls creating the feel of an artist's gallery. A short walk from the main building and cottages is a large swimming pool with views across the waterhole and the wildlife sanctuary beyond. Having a refreshing dip in the pool while watching herds of giraffe walk down to drink is a unique memory you will keep forever. With so much space and privacy, time here moves slowly and one can lose oneself in the African bush without disturbance.

Tortilis Camp has a prime location for witnessing the majesty of Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro.

Tortilis Camp is named after the flat-topped, umbrella thorn tree, the Acacia Tortilis, and embraces a hill in one of Amboseli’s areas of Acacia Tortilis woodland. Located in a private conservancy bordering the national park, game drives, walks, sundowners and bush meals take place both inside the national park and in the conservancy, where guests enjoy exclusivity.

The tents are all spacious, with king or twin beds and elegant en suite bathrooms. There is a main lounge, bar and dining area, all exquisitely built with natural materials and thatched roofs, with magnificent views of Kilimanjaro.

Finch Hattons Day 10 - 11

Finch Hattons is a luxury tented safari camp that combines its love for Tsavo with world-class facilities. The camp is completely isolated, so much so that you would be forgiven for forgetting that the rest of the world exists at all. In this place, it’s just you, the vast and varied terrain that stretches in every direction, and the many beasts and birds that call it home.

Finch Hattons is a magical place: located in a 35-acre concession within 9000m park of boundless African bush, complete with natural fresh water springs, rainforests, volcanoes, lava flow, and an abundance of fauna and flora in the south western corner of Tsavo West. At our camp, we count elephants, lions, leopards, hippos, crocodiles, buffalos and countless birds among our most treasured and frequent guests. These, we gently introduce to the intrepid travellers who come to us from near and far searching for an unparalleled wildlife experience.

Originally opened in 1993, Finch Hattons was entirely rebuilt between 2013 and 2015. The carefully considered architectural upgrades we made, together with our meticulous attention to detail, led to us receiving the best new safari camp award from Architectural Digest in 2015. In this has-to-be-seen-to-be-believed setting, we’re here to tailor make your luxury safari experience.


GIRAFFE MANOR Day 12

Giraffe Manor is an exclusive boutique hotel, owned by The Safari Collection. Often referred to as one of the most instagrammed properties in the world, Giraffe Manor is set in 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest in the Langata suburb of Nairobi. Giraffe Manor is one of Nairobi’s most iconic buildings. The historic manor house has extraordinary appeal, that harks back to the 1930s when European visitors first flocked to East Africa to enjoy safaris. With its stately façade, elegant interior, verdant green gardens, sunny terraces and delightful courtyards, guests often remark that it’s like walking into the film Out of Africa: indeed, one of its twelve rooms is named after the author Karen Blixen.

One of the most fascinating things about Giraffe Manor is its resident herd of Rothschild’s giraffes who may visit morning and evening, poking their long necks into the windows in the hope of a treat, before retreating to their forest sanctuary.
