The place is really beautiful, but it's impossible to sleep there! Too many mosquitos!! the place is also very expansive with no reason.. didnt enjoy staying there and moved to YMCA next by, which is so much better!!

Interesting place to go for camping. Had gone there with my fiancee and a friend and the whole outdoor camping thing was totally awesome. Other than the noise coming from the restaurant on ground it is quite ok. They got all the ammenities needed when camping even hot showers... As long as you go early in the morning... Boat rides...

We camped for two nights here with our overland outfitter. We loved the location and the grounds. It's right on the water so you can hear hippos in the evening (don't worry, you're not in danger). The squat toilets surprised a few but there were also thrones available as well. Regardless of your preference, they were clean. Basic, but clean.... More

Pleasant surprise. The drive there was smooth, roads are pretty decent. When we got there our tents we're set up within 20 minutes but these we're all damp and dirty. After requesting for about 3 replacements we gave up and settled on one. The camp offers one blanket per person which is grossly inadequate since it does get quite chilly... More

The camp is as close to the shoreside as it's possible. Huge area where you can put up your tent or you rent one. I rented one which was good enough,but for the price they charge they could get something better. Tents are very old and look dirty. There are showers and toilets,but the cleanliness could definitely be improved. Restaurant... More

Stayed here for a weekend work trip, and the staff was incredibly rude to us during the entire stay. Stay at Camp Carnelly's instead-- a much nicer place and much nicer staff. Guy named Vasilio at the restaurant was particularly awful. We just had a really bad experience here due to the way we were treated by staff. I do... More

My husband and I planned to spend the valentine's weekend in Naivasha. I'd actually made a reservation for a banda at Top Camp. As we drove to Top Camp, we began having our doubts about what we would find. True to our suspicions, Top Camp was a shocker! We were greeted by a gentleman who was kind and ushered us... More

We stayed for the weekend at the top camp. The staff were very friendly and the banda was adequate. The view was beautiful of the lake but, for our tastes, we were too far from the lake itself. Thank you!

Considering the price of accomodation in Kenya generally speaking, this is good value for money. In January a banda in the top camp was 1000 shillings p.p. and the small hut has 2 beds and is adequately clean. The restaurant and bar offers good food in a great setting, watching monkeys and peacocks run around in the greenery just meters... More

If you enjoy camping and the outdoors, Fisherman's Camp is a nice place. You will face primitive showers and "long-drops" (if you don't know what it is you probably shouldn't stay here), but often times that comes as a part of camping. I stayed at top camp and it was nice, lots of bird life and a great sunrise in... More
