Latest Check-Ins

Large grassy flat field to park, lots of other cars are stored there so more like a grassy car park.
It’s nice and quiet at night, showers are hot, had a small kitchen and lounge space you can use Not bad for a city campsite...
KES 850pppn

As described, good place to relax and meet other travelers. We passed two quiet nights in our RTT (850pp).

Good place: ample space, fresh air (for Nairobi standards), clean ablutions, supermarket in walking distance, excellent and affordable workshop for maintenance and repairs, good laundry service and delicious barbecue on Fridays. Owner Chris is good company.

great place to get many things done and have a good night sleep. Chris was able to do a safari check and some spring plates on my Volkswagen van as well as send out my cardik tank to be refilled and have a zipper replaced on a screen. the food was good and the beer was cold.

Jungle Junction is an overlanders institution in Nairobi and it’s easy to see why. Chris and Diana are really great people who will go the extra yard to help you when you need it. The staff here are super friendly and the workshop crew are very talented. We stayed here on at least three occasions and were made most welcome each time.

Excellent place to drop anchor. The place in Nairobi for Overlanders to rest, meet other travelers, service and repair battered vehicles and motor bikes. Near good supermarket, ATM. Facilities excellent.

Second time we stay here. Good place to organise your visa, repair your car and plan your trip. Many overlanders come here so good to swap stories. Campsite itself isn’t special and looks more like a big grassy parking lot. Although there is power available on site.The facilities however are nice with great wifi, hot showers, clean toilets a relax area both inside and outside. Many services available such as laundry, dinner/lunch and breakfast, shuttles, car repair, storage, etc. Price is 850 Kes pppn.

Nice traveller meeting point.
Now 850ksh ppn.

Jungle Junction is a little factory that takes in tired, dirty, broken down Overlanders and sends them on the road again. Chris was a great help in arranging Comesa for us (about €85 total, incl Kenya insurance for 6 months and incl his fee of $30). Alex the driver took us into town to get our passport and carnet stamp after coming in from Lake Turkana (800ksh per hour). Not a lot of ablutions but very clean. One washing machine load is 400ksh. Still schnitzel on Thursday. Better than expected!

best place in Nairobi for bikers and Overlanders.
Chris is cool guy, helpful and knows everything in kenya and technical questions

We had a good stay with enough supporting services (workshop, taxi, car washing, laundry, restaurant, etc.) available from the establishment. Nice camping site with electricity. No water at campsite, but owner is developing campsite further. News Cafe and Hardy's Post is walking distance away. The only complaint is the dogs/packs of dogs in the surrounding area barking/fighting at night.

Everything as stated below. Huge Garden with green Grass for Camping (between long term parked Cars). Laundry with real Washing Machine for 800 KSh per Machine. Liked the Place because it was relatively green and quite and we met a lot of other Overlanders there. Located on the Outskirts of Nairobi. Still 800 KSh pppn.

camp site is basically a storage yard. kitchen is TINY but with everything you need. showers are warm-ish. apparently they do not want the showers to be too nice (warmer & better pressure) because they don't want to encourage people to use them (their words, not mine).
best part is the fact that there are many overlanders which is a nice change from the mostly empty campsites.
wifi is super fast!

Very comfortable place! Finally a campingsite(Ksh.800,- pppn) with a kitchen again and a great lounge area.

We do agree with previous comment about the two showers and toilets only(the shower without bathtub is the only shower with good waterpressure).

Alot of overlanders around, nearby a bit of an expensive supermarket(but near the supermarket across the road of the ladies selling fabric(they hemmed a dress for us for Ksh.200,-), there's a cheap foodstall with good vegetables! We bought a couple of onions, garlic and quite a few tomatoes for €1.5,-).

We left our car here for Ksh.400,- pn whilst flying to Egypt for a week and afterwards we stayed longer than planned because the lounge area and WIFI were so good.

We also got our clothes washed for Ksh.400,- per load, which was alright since it was a looooong time ago we got our clothes properly washed.

Nice place to camp. Cris is friendly and helpful workshop on the premises

IMHO overrated. Campsite for vans is more a less a parking lot with not much too it but a power plug. When the place is busy two showers and two toilets are not enough. Good Schnitzel on Thursdays.

OK place to stay. The facilities are clean, hot shower and there is even a (very small) kitchen you can use. The campsite itself feels more like a big parking lot, because you are camping at the place where people store their vehicles.
Also stayed at Wildebeast camp which we liked better.

Clean bathrooms, nice grassy spot to camp. Stayed a few days. Chris is helpful. 800 ksh pppn.

Great place to share stories with other overlanders.
Chris is a nice person but loves money too much and the workshop is expensive and not as good anymore as one would expect from other comments.

Nothing much to do here other than have car repairs done but there's plenty of space for camping, a pleasant lounge and good wifi for office time, and it's close to a good shopping mall.

Stayed here to get our Land River worked on. 5 nights. Chris the owner is great. The camp is not the best, but the people passing through... Overlanders on bikes, motor bikes and big rigs are fun to sit around and swap stories with.

not very impressed to be honest. only two showers and two toilets for the whole place. owner seemingly only helpful if he thinks you'll spend a lot of money there. also there's a very old and ill dog that needs to be put down and is being left to suffer which was horrible to see. wouldn't go back

Nothing to add to the other comments. Excellent place!

Nice and big place on grass, clean ablutions, nice lounge, long-term parking, friendly staff

Camp in a nice area out of town, 8$ pppn camping. Beers 2$ and cold.

It's a very nice place to start into an African experience. Specially for newcomers there are many helpful things to know and Chris is the perfect man for all this.

Great place in a very nice part of Nairobi, very quite with little noise from traffic, good workshop at decent rates, they have their own taxi, 800ksh pppn, nice lounge with tv, free fast wifi, lots of room for trucks (but not tour trucks), Chris the owner (nice guy), sorted out UK and SA gas bottles for us. Nice hot showers

Great place to stay. Overlanders can rest a bit and enjoy the good atmosphere, nice living room with fire place, good company from fellow overlanders, workshop/garage, laundry service etc. etc.
very friendly owner and staff.

Great and quiet place in The middle of Nairobi.

Nice place with many overlanders. Clean ablutions, fast and free WiFi, possibility to work on your car. Good food, drinks from a fridge and grassy (although muddy in rain season) campsite.

An amazing place to stay! Great price, safe, amazing facilities, good restaurant and excellent staff. It's a bit far from the center, but bus line 24 passes quite close.

facilities good, staff friendly, food good. good place to gather yourself before moving on again.

Campground itself basic, but nice terrace and good facilities, better than expected

Excellent facilities for Overlanders and bikers, guarded storage available for vehicles, excellent workshop with mechanics on site. Good food and hot showers, highly recommended!

Nice camp site that is popular with over landers.

Well known place for ovrlanders. Storage facility (outside) and workshop for cars. Quiet environment, good restaurant.
