A well known resort and conference destination, The Safari Park Hotel and Casino is set in 50 acres of landscaped gardens that make it a glittering oasis cocooned from Nairobi’s city bustle, and is close enough to the new freeway on the east of the city centre for easy access. The lush botanical gardens filled with bird-life create a peaceful atmosphere and there is a wide choice of entertainment, restaurants, leisure and business facilities on site, so that it is an affordable and convenient choice for a Nairobi stopover before or after your Kenya safari.
There is no shortage of things to do here. If relaxing by the huge landscaped pool with its rock pools and open swimming areas doesn’t appeal, there are tennis and squash courts, a jogging track, a well equipped health club with aerobics and Taewondo classes as well as fitness machines, then there is a shopping village and spa and even a petting zoo for the kids.
The evening’s entertainment starts with the hotels’ dance troupe, the Safari Casts, at dinner in the Nyama Chomba restaurant and you could have a flutter at the international casino, or hang out at any one of the 9 bars. With six restaurants including Indian, Italian, Chinese, Japanese and African to choose from there is something for every taste.
The 204 rooms and suites are spread in several two-storey blocks around the grounds. Simply furnished with polished wooden floors, African antique style four-poster beds swathed in mosquito netting and rattan chairs, all the rooms are light and airy with big windows leading onto private balconies with lovely views over the gardens. Ceiling fans provide a cooling breeze, and the en-suite marble bathrooms have separate bath and shower.
The largest conference and events venue in Nairobi, the Safari Park has 20 different meeting and conference rooms, and the hotel is also a popular choice for weddings and social events, which is not surprising with the lush gardens intersected by winding paths, sparkling waterfalls and beautiful indigenous trees.
Choose the Safari Park for an affordable stay in a lively resort with a beautiful botanical garden feel.
