Jungle Junction Campsite
Ranked #19 of 228 Speciality Lodging in Nairobi
Reviewed 8 January 2017

To start with, it's home away from home. This is also the feeling the family who is running the place are trying to give their guests. And for myself, it got this feeling from the beginning. I arrived very exhausted and tired from a long ride , and I straight away felt home here. This place has a large comfortable living-room where you can relax, eat and socialize and if you have to get some work done, they have amazing wifi (this was the best wifi I had since I left South-Africa). Additionally, they also keep their camping / dorm prices very affordable.

The other and very important thing for overlanders is, that this place has a massive workshop where one of the owners (Chris), and his team can do all kinds of maintenance for Motorbikes, Cars and 4 by 4 drives. Also if you want to store your motorbike / 4 by 4 vehicle their, it is all possible! And they got my motorbike fixed and tuned up in no-time! And I also was allowed to watch one of the staff who was working on my motorbike to learn new things! So awesome!

But in the end, it's the people who make the place, and that is why I will 100% come back here!

If will have a family like Chris and his wife one day, than I know I made the right decisions in life.

Keep on going my role models! And hope to see you soon again!

Room Tip: I camped and slept in the dorm, both were very good experiences!

We discovered JJ on the internet because we needed a place to leave our car in Nairobi some time; and to repair some things which got broken along the (dirt) roads od southern Africa. JJ does not have a website and we could find a email address; so we just showed up. JJ appeared to be the perfect place for this: It is at the same time a modern lodge with perfectly clean rooms in a beautifull garden; a relaxed and spacey campsite and a professional and professional and trustworthy garage. If you ask for it they will even cook for you - the BBQ prepared by Chris and Diana was the best we had on out journey! And best of all was that Chris and his garage team can also do maintenance and repairs while our car is waiting to be picked up again - a perfect solution for us. Glad we found our way to JJ!

My best mate Mick and myself visited early 2014 on ur way from Cape Town to London on our 2 suzuki DR650's Chris and his wife (apologies can't remember her name) were really friendly and helpful in assisting us in the next phase of our trip. Chris was full of information about heading north and he supplied us with a driver to take us around town and to various embassies.

The food was also very good and is a perfect place for overland travel. Im posting 2 years later because I have only just discovered TripAdvisor.

Thanks Chris and everyone else at JJ's

Chris and the staff provide a great experience and wonderful service. The food is very reasonable, the location very secure and the staff well trained. I ride a motor bike, Honda xr650r and have had Chris and the team service my bikes for two years. Price is write and Chris is a BMW trained mechanic. His garage is well equipped, he has rooms to rent, a very economical dorm room I stay in when there and camp sites. I particularly look forward to the treat of eating there when I visit even if it is for a service all on the motor bike, I still plan it around meals. Also, Chris has bailed me out on a breakdown one time sending a truck to pick me up when stranded. I highly recommend the Jungle Junction. They also service and store cars and trucks including vans and buses.
