We enjoyed the warm welcome to the place and the sanctuary is awesome with a view of sun set, wild animals, scenery and a lot of birds around.

The floating restaurant in the middle of the lake on the crater makes the dinning experience unique and intersting. The lawns and the gardens around the resort are well maintained. The campind site within the property makes it convenient for Karoga (cook out) or a private (nosiy) party.

Huge area (10000 acres I think) full of game you can walk amongst (giraffe - lots, buffalo, zebra, baboon, velvet monkey, gazelle, antelope, dik dik, lizards, birds etc). The lake we only looked at from a viewpoint (great view) - not green anymore due to recent years rainfall. No flamingos anymore as a result. Water is too high for you... More

The Sanctuary is home to a wide variety of animals, including cape buffalo, eland, impala, giraffe, wart hogs and many others. While most people do a driving safari through the sanctuary, you are able to hike. This, of course, is at your own risk. Our favorite activity is to include a picnic. We scope out an open area, where we... More

Monkeys, giraffes, zebras, baboons,gazelles and so many other animals to see up close. It was great to see so many colombard monkeys in all their black and white glory in such a safe environment.

This park is worthwhile. As you can either take your won car, walk or go with a guide, you can explore the pak at your leisure. Rare birds are to be found in the park and at night even big animals like Hippo's. The park has its resident Giraffes, Buffalo, Zebra's. The guides are extremely well educated and speak perfect...

We were led by a knowledgable guide around Crater Lake and through the reserve. There are no major threats, so you can walk it which is great fun. The animals are diverse and encountered often throughout the walk. We saw masai giraffes, olive baboons, zebra, and colobus monkeys... just to name a few. The bird life was also fantastic to... More

While the restaurant on the lake seems to have seen better days, the three-hour hike around the crater was a fantastic experience. Apart from a few steep hills right after the start, the rest of the track is fairly easy to walk. We brought along our two three-year olds and they had no problems completing this hike. The track is... More
