Chelsea Village

With capacity to accommodate up to 120 guests, Chelsea Village is a popular and respected camp that is home away for home for guests working for some of the most well-known humanitarian and development aid agencies operating in Somalia.

The Challenge

Set in the MIA (Mogadishu International Airport zone), the aim was to create an accommodation camp that could cater to the highest possible standards despite the challenging location. The site was devoid of any infrastructure when building started in 2014.

The result

With NapCap’s sister company COG at the helm of the building and management process, Chelsea Village opened its doors in January 2015 hosting guests in NapCap accommodation. Today, Chelsea Village offers in-house catering of a remarkably high standard, video conference facilities, office space and camp security compliant with UN-Moss standards as well as CPOs for guests travelling into the city. In the next expansion for 2017, more NapCap rooms will be added as well as additional facilities such as a conference room and basketball court.

‘Chelsea Village is the only camp in MIA where we don’t get complaints about the food and accommodation. We no longer lodge our staff anywhere else.’
