Ngong House Hotel - BedroomNgong House Hotel prides itself of offering Kenyan hospitality and services of the highest standard.
Located on land originally part of Karen Blixen's vast coffee estate, and named after the Ngong Hills, which she held so dearly, Ngong House is only a half hour drive from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and Nairobi city center and yet, to those who visit, seems as if in the heart of the African bush. Paul Verleysen or his son, Christof, whose culinary masterpieces have become legendary, host guests at Ngong House.

Ngong House Hotel Accommodation

Ngong House - Execuitive BedroomWithin the ten acres are five tree houses and an apartment on ground level close to the pool. The main house is home to the Verleysen family where creature comforts blend easily with stylish furniture and African art.

Built entirely from wood the tree houses are on two levels with a bedroom area upstairs and a living area on the lower floor. They are raised 15 feet from the ground to gain an uninterrupted view of the Ngong Hills over unspoiled bush.
Covered with traditional African grass roofs, the rustic exteriors of these charming tree houses belie the elegant interiors.

Crafted by local artists - each house has its own unique style and each has been thoughtfully designed to incorporate comfort and convenience.
Large four-poster beds grace the bedroom area, with crisp cotton bed linen and overfilled feather pillows promising a luxurious night's sleep.

Feedback From Clients

Colman and Chris Handy

I just wanted to say thanks and congratulate you on a trip very well organized. It all went without a hitch and it's great to see Africa is as good as ever. The only place I probably won't visit again is the Chobe Safari Lodge. I think the standards have dropped there even since I was there in 2000. I can't believe how much Kasane has grown - I was last there in 2004 and almost didn't recognize it. The Marina Lodge looks very posh. Also, the Victoria Falls Hotel is looking fantastic after its refurbished. Such a wonderful hotel. Thanks again and we are already saving for our return trip to Africa!
