The island was lovely and peaceful, accommodation was lovely - all the huts had great views. Would have liked to have been able to stay and...

I stayed her with a safari group in 2016. We had previously had a wonderful experience her in 2013 and this time was even better. The camp is pretty much the same, except that there are improved small details - lighting on the paths, the lake is somewhat lower making it easier to get in and out. The biggest improvement...

If you want an truly African experience , a stay at Island Camp must be on the list. Superb accommodations, excellent food, brilliant location, and excellent company. I will be back. The rooms face east and you wake up to an amazing sunrise. The facilities, from the pool to the bats to the dining areas, are outstanding. What a great...

You can fly in ( 45 mins) or drive from Nairobi (6 hours). You are met and transferred on a traditional African boat (safe). The staff deal with your luggage so no carrying. 20 permanent substantial tents mix of classic or deluxe. Lovely pool area, bars x2 and restaurant facility all looking over Lake Baringo. So many birds of very...

Came here for a day trip from our camp. The boatman who picked us up was right on time and very safe and professional providing life jackets and helping us in and out of the boat. Island camp is just beautiful. The pool is on the clifftop and so has terrific views of the surrounding islands and the lake. There...

We have been coming to Island camp, on and off, for 35 years. Therefore we know why we come and what to expect. The rooms are now very smart and modernised. As ever the boat trips were wonderful. We went for relaxation and got it. However, we do feel the camp is over priced for residents. 31000/- per double with...

The luxury rooms are stunning overlooking Gibralter rock and Laikipia plateau and face the rising sun. The rooms are palatial with a plunge pool, partly canvas, partly walled with thatched roof.

Beautiful place on the island within Lake Baringo. Tents have a fantastic view and are very comfortable. Ideal place for relaxing and bird watching. Do not miss a boat trip early in the morning.
