I think this is one of my favourite places in Kenya. Island Camp is a perfect place to relax, birdwatch and enjoy spectacular views. Take the opportunity to boat round the island - you'll see crocodile, African Fish Eagle and much much more. The rooms are lovely and the service is excellent.

Bonnie and Perry are lovely hosts and the camp has a wonderful, relaxed vibe. The kids (13 and 10) scampered about free and easy, the pool providing a vital alternative to a lake that is inhabited with crocs and hippos; the staff were attentive without being intrusive. Food was buffet style for lunch and dinner served at the table -...

Our room was right on the water. You could not get a better view. Every morning we would wake up to one of the best sunrises with the rays reflecting on the water (see picture). They served coffee or tea right in our room. Trip to giraffe island was amazing. The food and facilities are excellent. Bonnie and Perry provided...

I stayed in Island Camp for three nights with a safari group in October, 2016. After staying in three different hotels/lodges in Kenya, this one is far superior than all of three places we stayed. A beautiful resort located in the middle of lake Baringo with breathtaking scenery -- felt like in the paradise! The property owner Bonnie and manager...

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.

You can fly in ( 45 mins) or drive from Nairobi (6 hours). You are met and transferred on a traditional African boat (safe).
