Got to see lots of animals and birds at the lake, including the hippos. Suggest to go slightly before sunset time so you can also see the amazing sunset view on the boat.

I loved the boat rides and the site of hippos was just thrilling. I also thought it was an awesome place to camp.

It is one of the cleanest campsites I have visited in Naivasha. The staff are very accommodating despite them being extremely busy.

The tents are modern and comfortable.The food is amazing and so convenient for the lazy camper. The lake has great sights of all kinds of birds and hippos too. The service is amazing as well. You never feel lacking at any given time.
