We would like to take the opportunity to introduce you to a very exciting, new boutique hotel on the outskirts of Nairobi – One Forty Eight. Located in the peaceful suburb of Langata, bordering the giraffe sanctuary, this beautiful little gem, with just 8 rooms, will provide the safari traveler with an ideal location to rest and relax in tranquil surroundings.
The location itself is completely unique with warthog, parrots, peacocks and monkeys freely coming and going through the garden of an urban location. Often lions and hyenas can be heard from the proximity of the incredible Nairobi National Park – the only major city in the world to share spaces with wildlife.
One Forty Eight is an ideal location to retreat from or delve into and explore Nairobi.
An incredible private home forms the foundation of the hotel, along with 5 brand new suites converted from the on site artist’s studio, the hotel itself spares no modern convenience – delicious food and wine, beautifully appointed rooms, first class service, in room televisions and wifi throughout, boutique designer shops on site, as well as access to amazing restaurants, museums and wildlife on our very doorstep.
Langata is considered Nairobi’s prime location due to its proximity to Wilson Airport and the many attractions nearby. The Giraffe Centre is one of the best attractions in Langata for families. Children learn about conservation and breeding of Rothschild giraffes. Enjoy feeding giraffes from a raised platform, and take pictures with these long-necked mammals. In addition, guests of One Forty Eight can pop into the Bomas of Kenya to learn about the 43 tribes of Kenya, their languages and cultural activities. Explore the traditional homesteads of these communities. There is a daily show in the arena too.
