A very average camp that with a little better customer services and food could be rated 'good' We had the guest house room, very clean and comfy with a nice view, although it's very far to the lake and you need binoculars to see it. A nice shower outside, hot water was plentiful too. No tea and coffee making facilities... More

I stayed there for 2 nights. First, I was a bit disappointed of the views (there are very nice photos on the website) but it was still great. I stayed at Eagles Nest (nice views to Lake Elementaita, the Sleeping Warrior Mountain and you also see some wildlife which is roaming around). The tent was very nice decorated. Food was... More

I stopped by the camp while exploring the area. the place is very nice with a breath taking view. the staff is very cordial and nice and the place is incredibly homey. I count to return and spend one or 2 nights in the facility. a walk on the Sleeping Warrior Hill is a must!

Stay here if you are in the area. We stayed here as part of a much longer journey around East Africa, and this place was one of our favorites. Most of the posted photos seem to be from the place we stayed, but there are a few that are some other place, so be clear about where you are actually... More

We stayed for two nights, our thatched tent was perched high on the hill, we could see for miles up and down the valley. It was a bit of a trek, but the position was worthwhile. There was a mosquito net over our bed so we slept with our door open to the night. The bathroom was small made of... More

I recently stayed at Sleeping Warrior Kenya and I was very disappointed. The photos are nothing like the actual tents! we had a tent with no view, no mosquito nets, no hot water. the food was OK and the view from the eating area was pretty good. Staff friendly. I was disappointed as I paid a lot of money and... More

Service was outstanding, and a very relaxing stay! Be prepared for about a 45 minute drive off the main road! Tents were very clean, secluded, perfect place to stay for a trip to Lake Nakuru, or the East Africa Children's Orphanage!

We spent 5 days here over Easter with 2 kids and other friends and will not forget this holiday soon! The landscape with the stimulating views on the perfectly shaped volcanoes, the lush vegetation and animals are really magic! We loved the family cottage, the infinity pool and the kids entertainment, as well as the interesting discussions with the owner.... More

Another perfect weekend at the mystical Sleeping Warrior camp, named after a Masai legend. I can't believe how lucky I am to have such a beautiful place a couple of hours out of busy Nairobi. The welcome from the perfect hosts, the view, and the resident hyraxes all mean I am looking forward to my next visit.
