i have ben here a couple of times and every time the biggest hurdle is usually when checking out, I cant get enough of this place, the bandas are clean, comfy and well positioned, the food amazing, even the bad road to that place adds to the sense of adventure. The staff are really good and take personal interest in... More

Punda Milias is an amazing place. I have been there over seven times with my boyfriend. The staff are really awesome. The managers go an extra mile to make the stay welcoming and comfortable. The bar is well stocked and the evening born fire is just awesome. We have stayed in the bandas and also camped using their tents during... More

Punda Milia is right on the border of the Soysambu conservancy and a close drive to Nakuru National Park. It has a wide range of accommodations to fit any budget from camping to a beautiful luxury cottage. The area is larger than we expected and the grounds are well kept with a safari style garden and solar lights. The swimming... More

Punda milia is Swahili for Zebra. And after searching around, this place sounded like it could use a visit. A short drive from Nakuru, be on the lookout for the signs (as neither Garmin nor Google maps seemed to have the place mapped out at the time of writing) Arrived there late evening for our camping experience and were welcomed...

Punda Millias camp was a very nice experience. The atmosphere was super and very relaxing. Gardens and landscape was perfect. Bandas offered a nice experience for my family and was unbelievably comfortable. The staff and management were superb, hospitable and very accomodating to our group. Thumbs up to Danny, Queen and the entire staff.

The location and views at this campsite are very nice, as pointed out by other reviewers. It's definitely cost effective (we stayed in the bush tent camp). The best part, I thought, was the outdoor showers. Absolutely splendid. The main and biggest complaint I have with the place are the cats in the restaurant. I am a fan of dogs,... More

A lovely campsite with very friendly staff! The managers were not only helpful but really made us feel at home. Because there would be a party on Saturday and we have a two-year old, the manager proposed to stay a bit further out at the bush camp. Really fantastic, privacy, and an almost private fire place, people that would start... More
