Lake Naivasha Crescent Camp was wonderful; kind staff (Steve, John, Peris), good food, good price, very pleasant grounds and rooms. I would definitely return! Monkeys playing around on the grounds was like a bonus :) We also liked that it was very close to Hell's Gate National Park.

This luxury tented camp was such a surprise - we were scheduled to stay at a different hotel. The tented lodges were wonderful. The bedroom was huge with a king size bed and a twin bed, yet plenty of room for a desk, a couch and walk around area. My wife loved the poster bed with zebra bed sheets. The... More

With it's huge and raised tents, it is definitely the place to be while in Naivasha. The space is amazing for families with enough grounds for children to play. The boat ride was very exciting. The buffet is sumptuous with a wide variety to choose from. You can easily stay for a week here

During our safari in Kenya, we stayed 2 nights at this historic lodge. We saw pictures of the Queen of England having stayed there with her entourage back in the fifties. The service and food were good. Nothing gourmet or fancy, of course but we were not there for food rather the safari. This is where I met my Maasai... More

After several days in Amboseli, my family and I went to Lake Naivasha and stayed at Crescent Camp. Upon check-in, we were given a welcome drink and given keys to our cabins. The cabins were very large (huge bathroom) and comfortable. Hot water in the shower was great and the bed was very comfortable. Meals were good (buffet) and the... More

We stayed two nights at Lake Naivasha Crescent Camp with our tour group who were camping and we decided to upgrade to one of their permanent tents. While we may have been a bit shell shocked from our usual pup tent sleeping arrangement, it was undoubtedly the most luxurious camping ive ever experienced. Our enormous tent has canvas sides but...

This was my second time here. I drove out to Lake Naivasha the week prior with no plan and ended up pulling in here to go on a boat safari. I was amazed at how pretty the camp was and I had a fabulous time on the boat ride with my guide. I saw hippos, zebras, eagles and we even... More

A group of dear old former peace corps volunteer friends wanted to camp in Naivasha over Xmas. We started at fishermans camp, our old favorite, but it was a disaster. The camp was overrun with people and despite the posted camp rules about music and noise after 10pm, it turned in to a massive drunk fest. The next morning the... More
