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.

Beautiful lake with bird life and hippos. Adds to the charm of the area. It is a short walking distance from the Naivasha Kongoni Lodge which offers a cosy and relaxing stay. Those more adventurous can camp at the Oloiden Camp Site right at the shores of the lake.

Out in the boats you feel slightly uneasy knowing that the hippos are in the water somewhere. But the guide was excellent putting our minds at ease and reassuring us that we were safe. Fantastic

It gave me nostalgia and a sense of calm being by that lake. It's not so busy as L.Naivasha so you get to experience the serenity of life. A trip round the lake was awesome got to see hippos and a lot of birds. Definate worth while.
