It was quaint and comfortable.We paid out to do the safari drive and it was totally worth it seeing zebra, giraffe, wildbeast and more. The food was simple but homely and tasty. The service was very friendly and it was a calm...

Very nice camp, we were alone in the site with 3 young kids. Hot clean bathrooms you book your own water, but they provide firewood for free. Camp toilets not the very best... Lots and lots of animals, during breakfast we had ostrich, gazelle, giraffes just outside the camp. The monkeys are well behaved. 40 km from Nairobi was better...

A lovely getaway very close to Nairobi, rooms spacious and clean, powerful showers and the food was good and the bar entertaining. Staff were very attentive, polite and eager to please. Only stayed one night and regret not longer this time.

Two years ago we had stopped and enjoyed a relaxing few hours at Acacia with a fairly decent meal enroute to Nairobi. Looking forward to having a similar experience we drove up to the gate which had signage stating that conservancy fees were applicable. We informed the guard that we wanted to go to the restaurant . Apparently he had...

Set in the wild Swara Plains Conservancy, this camp gives you a wonderfully wild experience. I have camped here twice, cycled through the conservancy itself countless times and devoured the amazing cuisine served here.

I would have to disagree with the review below...The food is excellent here and the service is outstanding . I felt very much at home and comfortable.

Though pre-agreed with the restaurant manager that our friends and us will get 3 course meal for 1,500 kenya shillings, we were deeply disappointed and shocked to get a very poor main course (plain rice and a stew) without first course, the so-called "dessert" was combined of 1/8 pre-eaten cake for 20 (!) people and an unfresh "fruit salad" (combined...

It was a great getaway with my family. We enjoyed seeing the animals so close than ever before. We loved the food too that was mouth watering. The staff were very friendly and I would definitely recommend anyone to Acacia Camp. We will be back very soon with my family again because this is the place to be.
